Western United have another young gun in their arsenal of players except this one plays in a different league.

Dylan Campbell, or N8_Dylan as he’s more commonly known is one of United’s E-League players and the youngest in the whole competition.

The 16-year-old made headlines after beating Melbourne City’s Marcus Gomes in round four of the first matchday.

Gomes was the first professional gamer signed to the E-League as a marquee player.

Despite his growing list of achievements, Campbell is now setting his sights towards matchday two of the E-League as United look to make the finals in yet another maiden campaign.

Currently sitting at sixth on the table, Campbell is setting his sights on the two major goals.

“For Western United, a top-four finish is something we all really want to achieve,” he said.

“We’re currently six on the ladder so that’s something we think we can accomplish,

“On an individual level, I’d like to win all of my next games.”

The Esports industry is a growing industry worth more than $1 billion worldwide and attracting about 500 million viewers.

Introduced three years ago the E-League was Australia’s arrival in the Esports world.

The growing league in Australia is not a surprising achievement according to Campbell.

“Esports in Australia is not as big as it is internationally,” he said.

“There is a following here, but compared to the European or North American league the followings there are huge,

“The opportunities are enormous.”

And he is not wrong. Stepping away from his E-League achievements and Campbell had already travelled to Bucharest in late 2019 for the EA first EA FIFA Ultimate Team Champions Cup.

Campbell next plays against the Newcastle Jets’ Xbox player Andy Phanouvong or N8 AKP0.
