YouTube star West Ham United fan Spencer Owen has been announced as the host for the grand final of the West Ham United eSports Cup powered by Basset & Gold.
Spencer, who is behind the Spencer FC YouTube channel and formed the football club Hashtag United, will present the action as the UK’s best FIFA 19 players battle it out at London Stadium on Sunday 18 November for a £25,000 prize pool.

The first eight players have already secured their place at the finals in online qualifiers, but there’s still time to register for the second qualifier on Tuesday 6 November, when four more PlayStation 4 and four Xbox players will join them.
Spencer Owen said: “I’m absolutely buzzing to be presenting the grand final of the West Ham United eSports Cup powered by Basset & Gold at London Stadium.
"The best 16 FIFA 19 players in the UK will have earned their spot following a series of highly-competitive online qualifiers and now they're going to play for a massive £10,000 top prize. I can't wait to find out who's going to win!"
