SportsPro senior contributor Matt Rogan is joined by the hugely experienced sports and gaming executive Peter Moore: veteran of Reebok, Sega of America, Microsoft, EA Sports, and former chief executive of English soccer giants Liverpool. 

Moore is now working with Unity Technologies, and as an adviser to new owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenny at Welsh soccer club Wrexham, who play in English soccer's semi-professional fifth tier.

In a wide-ranging conversation, Moore explores the many sides of leadership. He describes how the Hollywood takeover at lower-league Wrexham is about community impact as much as commercial opportunity, and dives into comparisons and contrasts of everything from talent to fanbases in soccer and video games. 

He also explains how EA Sports rode out the digital transformation of its industry and, in an interview recorded before news of a breakaway Super League attempt in the European game, reflects on the privilege and responsibility of running Liverpool, his hometown club.
