Fans hurl video game controls on to football pitch in protest against eSports – video | Sport

Football fans in Switzerland protested against increased investment in eSports by throwing tennis balls and game consoles on the pitch during a Swiss Super League match.

On Sunday, the referee stopped play for two minutes as Young Boys and Basel supporters hurled objects from the stands, according to RTS Sport. Fans also held up banners opposing franchises in digital leagues, including one with a giant pause button and another with the words ‘F*** eSports’ emblazoned across it.

Hosts Young Boys went on to win the game 7-1 on the same artificial surface they lost 3-0 to Manchester United on Wednesday in last week’s Champions League debut
