FIFA: Hammers, Bubbles and .. Dragons?
9th May 2016
It is with mixed emotions that Sean ‘Dragonn’ Allen has been transferred to the football club West Ham United as an official eSports player. The transfer was announced first on the official Twitter page of the East London football club and was later confirmed on the BBC Sport website.
This is a first for exceL eSports and indeed UK eSports as a whole, with Sean being the first British FIFA player to be signed by a professional football team. Sean's time with exceL was relatively brief, but a recap of his time here included multiple achievements, including a second place finish at the 2016 FIFA Interactive World Cup in New York. Sean has always brought a fun but professional attitude to the organisation and was always up to interact with all staff and team members, FIFA or not!
Dragonn, who qualified for all Gfinity Play Like a Legend events this year, is a very talented player with a bright future ahead of him. All of us at exceL eSports wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours and his career in eSports.
