Monday 26th February 2018 – West Ham duo Javier Hernandez and Michail Antonio put their feet in David Moyes’s shoes as they took their first steps into the world of coaching in part two of the Betway Esports Challenge.

After going head-to-head in a game of CS:GO in part one, Hernandez and Antonio got GeT_RiGhT and f0rest – two stars of leading esports team Ninjas in Pyjamas – to put down their mouse and keyboard and lace up their boots for a very different type of shooting practice.

The Challenge required GeT_RiGhT and f0rest to team up with their coaches and shoot footballs at cardboard cut-outs of West Ham players, with the most points awarded for hitting the targets that were furthest away.

The Betway Esports Challenge, which was hosted by BBC presenter OJ Borg, marks the first time a football club and esports team have ever collaborated.

Betway have been the headline sponsor of Ninjas in Pyjamas – known as ‘NiP’ to supporters – since September 2016.

NiP are legends in the world of esports. They have won the IEM Oakland – one of CS:GO’s most prestigious tournaments – two years running and earned almost £2million in prize money.

CS:GO is one of the leading esports titles and, like the Premier League, is watched by millions of fans around the world.
