The winners of each group will qualify for the semi-finals, with the victor on each console going on to play each other in a two legged-final with one game played on PS4 and the other on Xbox.

The tournament will be hosted by YouTube star and Hammers fan Spencer Owen, while a special appearance will also be made by West Ham legends Carlton Cole, Marlon Harewood, Jack Collison and Hayden Mullins, who will face off in an exhibition game of No Rules FIFA.

The West Ham eSports Cup powered by Basset & Gold is the club’s first ever eSports tournament open to the public, and with more than 1,000 players now whittled down to the final 16, it promises to be a day of thrilling action.
