West Ham Embrace eSports and Sign Pro Gamer Dragonn

Ahead of moving into the London Olympic Stadium next season, West Ham United made another push into the future just ahead of their final home match at the historic Boleyn Ground. The East London club became the first Premier League club to sign an eSports player with the signing of Sean Allen aka Dragonn.

With the eSports business booming, including broadcasts on ESPN multiple brands lining up to sponsor the competitive gaming industry, it makes sense for a club to sign an eSports player to a deal. Dragonn, who has qualified for every FIFA eSports event this year, will wear the #50 West Ham jersey for every future tournament.
