Moore’s been at EA handling the interactive sports side of the company for the best part of a decade, with his job title changed in 2015 as the publishers shifted towards eSports.

He’s now using that experience at a position in an actual premiership football club. The 61-year-old Moore joins Liverpool FC in June, taking on the title of chief executive officer.

“The appointment completes a ten-month transition plan by FSG and finalises the senior management structure at the club,” says the Liverpool FC press release.
