Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul will be joined by former Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward in his work on esports venture Estars.

Krul was introduced to the Abu Dhabi-based firm's board in 2017 after becoming an investor, and will now be joined by Woodward, who has been announced as a non-executive director.

Gavin Petken, former managing director of the Royal Bank of Scotland, will also take up the same role.

Wood ward said in a statement on EStars’ official website: “When you put together esports, education and a dynamic region such as the Middle East, where curriculum decisions can be made faster than Europe, it is a recipe for success.

“Joining the team is an easy decision when you add the exceptional leadership and entrepreneurial energy of Mags. I’m excited about EStars delivering a path of learning for the next generation in the (relatively) new industry of esports.”

Estars describes itself as an "educational esports company". It was founded six years ago and focuses on school education on esports. They've hosted over 100 esports events.
