It should be no surprise that Konami is attempting to move its soccer franchise into the potentially lucrative mobile space. The company is now largely dependent on free-to-play mobile games and gambling machines so this is a natural move for them. EA Sports has proven there is a market for free-to-play Ultimate Team style mobile offerings with FIFA, Madden, and NBA Live, which draw in tens of millions in digital revenue every year.
