Liverpool Football Club tonight announced that Peter Moore will leave his position at EA to become their new CEO.
Fenway Sports Group released a statement on the clubs official website and said the following;
Liverpool Football Club has named Peter Moore as its new chief executive officer.
The appointment completes a 10-month transition plan by FSG and finalises the senior management structure at the club.

Peter Moore had previously been involved in the video games industry including being COO at SEGA, Head of Xbox Division at Microsoft (with his famous Halon2 and GTA IV tattoos) and, of course, his current position of Chief Competition Officer at EA.

Peter will take up his new position in July 2017.
