BBC News reports "Manchester City Football Club have signed a new young player - but one who will never set foot on the pitch. Instead 18-year-old Kieran "Kez" Brown joins the club as its first e-sports player. He will represent the club at e-sports tournaments, playing popular computer game Fifa. Premier League rivals West Ham signed their first Fifa player, Sean "Dragonn" Allen, in May and many other top flight clubs are keen to get involved. "It's exciting, it's something new for the club and it's something new for me," said Mr Brown. "I'm going to live stream on Twitch, I'm going to be making videos for Manchester City's YouTube channel and I'm going to be playing some City fans and representing City in future tournaments, which I'm looking forward to."
