Swiss fans rudely protest against esports during live football match

Young Boys fans deployed a banner with a "pause" button, after which the Basel fans also unfurled their own banners. Match referee was pressured to interrupt the match for a number of minutes to the stadium had been faraway from the garden of overseas objects. One of which read, "Scheiss E-Sports", which roughly translates to the simple message of "esports are shit", according to Google translate. While Basel does have an E-Sports team, Young Boys Bern has no affiliation with the industry-and it looks like fans want to keep things that way.

Esports are becoming increasingly big business, with many of Europe's top clubs boasting professional teams. Young Boys won 7-1.
