A lot of Leeds United fans have flocked to a post from their club that contains a link to an article on their website confirming that the Whites have joined up with ‘iconic esports organisation Ninjas in Pyjamas (NiP)‘.
They claim that this will take the club’s esports presence ‘to a new level‘ and that NiP will be supporting Leeds in their attempt to win the ePremier League EA SPORTS FIFA 21 Tournament.
It is also claimed that NiP had been looking for a football club with a long history and a ‘name worth fighting for.’
The piece then contains quotes from NiP’s CEO, Hicham Chahine.
This has drawn the attention of these Leeds fans who are pleased with this news.
So, what did these Leeds fans make of this news?

Do you want to see Elland Road on FIFA 21?
Yes, it should be on there already
No, it doesn't matter
Other Whites supporters, though, want to know why Elland Road is not on FIFA 21.

Imagine having a purpose built partnership specifically for Fifa and still not being able to play in our own stadium on it

The fact that Leeds’ home ground is not on the latest FIFA has clearly irritated many Whites fans, while others seem happy with this partnership.
We will just have to see if NiP can help Leeds win the ePremier League EA SPORTS FIFA 21 Tournament on this occasion.
