Submit Share Share Betway and Dafabet grow La Liga sponsorship portfolios August 14, 2020 From sponsorship to the ever-expanding world of football media coverage, when it comes to the business of football, SBC has you covered. This edition looks at two possible destinations for the 2021 Champions League final, as well as a new partnership for Kylian Mbappé. Munich and St Petersburg in the running to host the 2021 Champions League finalUefa has revealed that Munich and St Petersburg are the only applicants to host the 2021 Champions League final. It means the final will be played at either the Krestovsky Stadium in Russia, which has a 64,287 capacity and played host to a total of seven games at last summer’s hugely successful Russian World Cup. It’s unsurprising that the Russian Football Union is looking to put the stadium forward after it’s been rumoured to have cost around $1.5bn, taking over a decade to construct. On the other hand, Munich’s Allianz Arena is the home of German champions, Bayern Munich and hosted the final in 2012, when Didier Drogba dramatically clinched the European Cup for Chelsea from Bayern Munich. The decision on where the final will be hosted will be made in the middle of 2019, at a similar time the governing body will decide on the location for the 2021 Europa League, with Vienna, Tbilisi and Seville all putting their names in the hat to host the tournament. Seville is likely to be seen as the favourite to win this race, with both Real Betis and serial winners Sevilla playing in the tournament this year having spectacular infrastructure, to host a final. However, Uefa’s desire to expand European football to new regions, could increase the chances of Georgian capital Tbilisi. The timing’s just right for KylianJust a week after being dropped to the bench for PSG’s Ligue 1 tie with Marseille after turning up late to a squad meeting, French starlet Kylian Mbappé was made a brand ambassador for renowned watchmaker Hublot.The 19 year old, did however come off the bench in the second half of the game to race behind the Marseille defence and open the scoring and send Thomas Tuchel’s side on their way to three points. Philippe Tardivel, marketing director of Hublot commented: “We partner with Kylian because, with his excellence on the field and his humility off it, it appeals to young people as well as middle-aged people.”Betway utilises Hammers partnership to support Responsible Gambling Week Betway has strengthened its support for the upcoming Responsible Gambling Week (1st-7th November) by helping to promote the cross-industry initiative during two West Ham United home matches at the London Stadium.Betway, the official principal partner of West Ham, dedicated a range of its match day advertising assets at this Carabao Cup fourth round tie against Tottenham Hotspur and Premier League game with Burnley on 3rd November to Responsible Gambling Week.These include LED screens, stadium big screen, programme, digital ads on whufc.com and West Ham’s social channels. The firm has also created bespoke responsible gambling t-shirts for the West Ham players to wear during the warm-ups.Karim Virani, commercial and digital director at West Ham, commented: “The club fully understands the importance of responsible gambling, and are delighted to be taking part in Responsible Gambling Week. We look forward to working closely with Betway in a number of different ways to help spread this message, both during and beyond this event.”In addition to its partnership with West Ham, Betway will also be using its All-Weather Championships horseracing sponsorship to promote the week-long initiative. Race titles at Lingfield, Southwell, Wolverhampton and Newcastle will include a Responsible Gambling Week message over the course of the seven days.Betway CEO Anthony Werkman added: “We are proud to be involved in Responsible Gambling Week and are very happy to use our partnerships with West Ham and the All Weather Championships to help promote this vital cross-industry initiative.“Responsible gambling is at the heart of everything we do at Betway. We pride ourselves on providing our customers with a fun and informed betting experience, supported by a safe and secure environment.”The Montreal Impact deepens partnership with BMO Financial group The Montreal Impact has extended its partnership with the BMO Financial group with the firm continuing to in its role as the side’s official shirt sponsor.For the past seven years, BMO and the Impact have developed a high-level partnership strategy whose goals have been achieved. The results of this relationship led to the renewal of this deal, which will continue for years to come.It’s a first piece of good news regarding the club’s efforts toward the Quebec business community.Montreal Impact president Joey Saputo stated: “We are both excited and feverish to continue what we have already started with BMO. For us, this is a historic deal, because our club can always count on the unconditional support of a prestigious partner for the years to come. This unique partnership is also an enormous pledge of confidence because it testifies to the value and importance that the Montreal Impact has in the Quebec market. We are extremely grateful for this continued commitment and trust.”Claude Gagnon, president, Operations, BMO Financial Group, Quebec commented on the extension: “The unifying effect of this sport allows us to celebrate our Montreal team with the community and being close to the people we serve is very important to us; it is part of the inner values embodied by BMO. We are proud of our partnership with the Montreal Impact since the team entered the MLS in 2012 and it is with great enthusiasm that we will meet the fans of the Impact through this renewed partnership for many years to come.”As a presenting partner, BMO most notably has its logo on the Montreal Impact jersey, as well as an increased presence inside Stade Saputo. BMO contributes in an exceptional way to the supporters’ experience and to the benefits of every soccer fan in the province.BMO’s different ongoing initiatives will continue, and new programs will be put in place, most notably with BMO clients, who will be able to take advantage of even more unique experiences.

The life of a Game Development Officer provides many challenges – a lot of travel, weekend work, and your fair share of sunburn, sleep deprivation, and strained vocal chords to list a few of the prices to be paid to deliver the sport you love for a livelihood. TFA Game Development Officers will be featured regularly on the web-site giving readers an insight into their world in “Postcards from the Edge”. The first GDO featured is North Queensland’s Glen ‘Richo’ Richardson.Queensland Touch Game Development Officer Glen ‘Richo’ Richardson packed his referee whistle, his superior karaoke skills, and his ‘can do’ positivity in his kitbag and moved to Townsville from the Gold Coast early in 2007 to continue his GDO career.Lapping up the laid back North Queensland lifestyle, ‘Richo’ is also making a big impression on locals with his professionalism, work ethic, and positive commitment to making a difference.The hardworking and popular GDO sent a postcard home about life in the North. The photograph took a little more explaining, especially to his Mum and Dad!!!Richo’s Postcard from the Edge….“Firstly I have to thank all the North Queensland people who have made me feel very welcome. Executive Officer Billy Grant and Executive Assistant Angee Lane have both been fantastic in helping me settle in, and I now occupy a desk in the North Queensland Office allowing close contact with the hub of Touch in the North.Since arriving I have met with a number of affiliates including: Townsville Castle Hill, Thuringowa, Charters Towers, Burdekin, Bowen, Sarina, Whitsundays and I am just about to embark on a tour to Cloncurry and Mount Isa where I will run a Level 1 referee course. There are still a few affiliates that I haven’t met with yet however I will be visiting them after the NTL in late March and early April.It is an exciting time for touch in the North with most affiliates showing growth in their competitions along with diligent volunteers that I have met making North Queensland such a friendly and enjoyable place to work.There is a long road ahead, Townsville and North Queensland has been without a permanently stationed development officer for some time now, however I hope that with my assistance and the support of North Queensland Touch, Queensland Touch and Touch Football Australia, together we can make Touch Football an enjoyable sport for Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime…”Footnote: Glen’s parents can breath a sigh of relief, ‘clean skin’ Richo was just signing the visitor’s book at the Sarina Police station, though many of us who have been on the wrong side of his refereeing decisions over the years thought that justice had finally been done with the long arm of the law reeling the little big man of the refereeing ranks in for his repeated and blatant misinterpretation of the TFA 7th edition Rule book…Just kidding Richo.

erin andrews jimmy kimmelErin Andrews, who recently won her lawsuit in the much-publicized stalker trial, was awarded $55 million in damages from the Nashville Marriott, the Windsor Capital Group and Michael David Barrett. It didn’t take long for ABC late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel to get to the point when Andrews came on as his guest Wednesday night.Kimmel, jokingly, asked Andrews for $1 million. Of course – as we’ve written – she doesn’t have any of that money yet, and she won’t get it all.In all seriousness, it’s great to see Andrews smiling and laughing after the trial. The pictures/video from the ordeal were pretty tough to see.
On Thursday night, the head coach of the U.S. men’s national soccer team, Jurgen Klinsmann, decided he would not be taking Landon Donovan to the 2014 World Cup. Given that Donovan is one of the most decorated and long-standing soccer players in U.S. history, the news came as a shock to many American soccer fans.But for those who follow the sport closely, Donovan’s omission from the roster wasn’t so surprising. Klinsmann and Donovan got off to a rocky start in 2011, when Klinsmann first took the head coaching job and Donovan decided to take a break from soccer. Since then, Donovan has been working to get back into Klinsmann’s player pool, but nagging injuries sidelined him for much of 2013. At age 32, Donovan appeared to have lost some of his pace and ability to finish. Since scoring Oct. 6 of last year, he has taken 32 shots with the LA Galaxy and men’s national team, but he hasn’t scored a goal.Similarly, over the past three years, all of Donovan’s offensive statistics have been declining: goals, assists, expected goals and passing expected assists. (ESPN TruMedia does not have data available before the 2012 Major League Soccer season for these statistics. Passing expected assists are a measure of how many goals we’d expect his passes to generate based on where players received the ball and other context.) Donovan’s most recent performance makes a clear case against sending him to the World Cup.Klinsmann’s detractors are probably clinging to the memory of Donovan’s storied stoppage-time finish against Algeria at the 2010 World Cup, which sent the U.S. out of the group stage. No U.S. player has performed as well as Donovan in the past three World Cups in terms of goals scored (five), and he improved his ability to create scoring chances, complete passes and assists in each subsequent World Cup he played in.No longer finishing goals himself, the best reason to include Donovan on the squad in Brazil is probably his ability to create scoring chances for other people. Since the start of 2013, Donovan created 36 scoring chances in 12 games for the men’s national team — 15 more than any player going to Brazil.But four years is a long time, and a lot has changed for Donovan and soccer in the U.S. People expect something of the men’s national team this summer; simply qualifying for the tournament is no longer a point of pride. In previous World Cups, coaches might have taken a player along for his leadership qualities or experience, but Klinsmann has made it clear that a 32-year-old in bad form is not worth any amount of intangible qualities.It will be difficult to know whether Klinsmann made the right decision until June 26, when the U.S. finishes the group stage of the tournament. Because of Donovan’s name recognition and fan following, his absence might hurt World Cup viewership in the U.S. But the fact that the men’s national team is finally bigger than one player is great news for soccer in America.
The loss suffered by the Ohio State women’s basketball team in the Sweet 16 represented more than the end of the season — it represented the last time Jantel Lavender would don scarlet and gray. The vacancy left by the four-time Big Ten Player of the Year will be coach Jim Foster’s toughest obstacle, as he will look toward Ashley Adams to improve on her solid freshman season and develop into the type of low-post threat Lavender posed. “We have to find someone else,” Foster said. “Sammy (Prahalis is) back — another opportunity for her to lead and help some of our younger players grow over the summer.” Samantha Prahalis will be a senior next season under the expectation that the team will be hers to lead. Her 14.5 points per game were second, behind only Lavender. She finished Big Ten play as the conference leader in assists, with 6.9 per game, ranking third in the country. It’s likely that the majority of her assists next season will be from baskets made by Adams, who shot 61 percent from the field this year. After averaging less than six minutes of playing time over her first nine games, Adams moved into the starting lineup and contributed heavy minutes after senior Sarah Schulze suffered a serious knee injury Jan. 16. From then on, Adams averaged more than 27 minutes per game and started 16 of the team’s last 17 games. At 6-foot-4, Adams presented opposing teams with the challenge of facing two sizeable players in the post when paired with Lavender. After Schulze went down, Adams averaged 8.2 points per game. Before she moved into the starting lineup, she averaged fewer than two points a contest. Guard Brittany Johnson is the other senior starter leaving. Johnson was the team’s most potent threat from beyond the 3-point line, making 42.7 percent of her attempts. Johnson was the 29th player in program history to record 1,000 points, and was second in the Big Ten, averaging 2.9 threes per game. It will be up to guards Tayler Hill and Amber Stokes to fill the void Johnson leaves next year. Hill, entering her junior campaign, earned Big Ten All-Defensive team honors this season, and was voted honorable mention for the conference. She was third on the team in scoring, with 12.8 points per game, and handled the ball when teams looked to shut down Prahalis. Stokes became known as the team’s spark plug off the bench, often providing the Buckeyes with intangibles. Others who will likely see increased roles next season are centers Aleksandra Dobranic and Darryce Moore, forwards Martina Ellerbe, Brianna Sanders and Emilee Harmon, and guard Amy Scullion. Foster has four incoming freshmen signed for next season, including guards Raven Ferguson and Kalpana Beach. Ferguson is rated as the No. 35 overall prospect and sixth among point guards by ESPN. Beach is ranked as the No. 26 incoming freshman guard. “You just sort of reload and get ready,” Foster said after the Sweet 16 loss. “You can’t dwell.”
Ohio State junior guard Raven Ferguson (31) dribbles the ball during a game against Old Dominion Nov. 22 at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio. OSU won, 75-60.Four players scored in double figures for the Ohio State women’s basketball team Thursday, as the Buckeyes took down Michigan, 61-50, in Ann Arbor, Mich.OSU (13-9, 3-3) was led in scoring by junior guard Raven Ferguson, who came off the bench to score 16 points on 7-14 shooting.The game started off much like the first meeting between the two squads, which took place on Jan. 5, in Columbus, as the Buckeyes once again shot poorly from the field in the first half – just 28.6 percent.The Buckeyes found their stride in the second half.OSU shot an impressive 60 percent from the field in the game’s final 20 minutes, while holding the Wolverines to 29.4 percent shooting.Despite being outrebounded and turning the ball over 18 times, the Buckeyes’ reserves dominated, as junior guard Maleeka Kynard and Ferguson combined for 28 of OSU’s 30 bench points while Michigan only received six points from their bench.Kynard, who averages just 14.2 minutes per game this season, played a career high 31 minutes and tied a career-high with 12 points in the win.Likely due to her improved play of late, senior center Ashley Adams earned a start over fellow senior center Darryce Moore and was one rebound shy of a double-double, recording 11 points and nine rebounds in the Buckeye victory. It was Adams’ eighth start of the season.Sophomore guard Ameryst Alston, who leads the team in scoring this season with 17 points per game, scored just 11 points, seven of which came at the free throw line.Michigan was led in scoring by junior guard Shannon Smith who scored a game-high 17 points.The Buckeyes will attempt to keep the momentum from win over their rival going Sunday, as they are scheduled to play Michigan State (12-7, 4-2) at 12:30 p.m.
Ohio State redshirt senior first baseman Zach Ratcliff at bat during the Scarlet and Gray World Series in October 2016. Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsA matchup between reigning Big Ten tournament champions and reigning Big Ten regular season champions was sure to be a much anticipated matchup among fans.And with a 2017 record 2,342 fans in attendance at Bill Davis Stadium, there were plenty of eyes set to take in a Friday night matchup between a pair of heavyweight pitchers.Those fans were treated to quite the pitching battle between the two starters, but the Gophers bullpen held on to the late lead they were given and helped propel Minnesota to the 5-2 victory in the Big Ten opener for both teams.The Gophers got on the scoreboard first with a sacrifice fly off the bat of junior first baseman Toby Hanson in the top of the third inning, scoring junior right fielder Alex Boxwell from third base.Two innings later, Boxwell would again step up to the plate, and this time crushed the second pitch of the at-bat over the batter’s eye in straight-away center field to give Minnesota a 2-0 lead.After five anemic innings from the Buckeye offense, it was again the freshman second baseman Noah West who provided his team with a spark.West extended his hitting streak to five games with a single through the left side. He proceeded to register his first-career stolen base, swiping second and giving the Buckeyes only their second runner in scoring position on the day. And after a bunt single loaded the bases for senior shortstop Jalen Washington, a wild pitch scored West from third to bring the score to 2-1.A groundout by Washington after the wild pitch scored junior center fielder Tre’ Gantt from third, knotting the game up at two.With the game tied, OSU coach Greg Beals opted to pull redshirt senior starting pitcher Jake Post in favor of redshirt senior reliever Joe Stoll. Post finished the day with two runs (one earned) over six innings of work. He walked just two while striking out five and giving up seven hits.Just a half inning later, the Gophers would get the bats going again. With the Buckeyes’ starter out of the game, a walk and a single put runners on the corners for redshirt senior catcher Matt Stemper who rolled a grounder to junior reliever Seth Kinker. Kinker fired on to home, unable to nail the runner at the plate and the Gophers took the 3-2 lead.A single to right field put the second Gopher run of the inning up on the board and an error in right allowed the runners to reach second and third. Kinker retired the next two batters to keep the game at 4-2.The Gophers scored once more in the top of the ninth to seal their victory at 5-2.The bullpen blowing the lead was a tough blow for a team that had battled back to tie the game up late in the game, and Washington believes it took some of the momentum the team had built up out from under them.“We preach throwing a zero after a big inning,” Washington said. “Came out and got two and we couldn’t stop them the next half inning. We wanted to throw a zero and they got a few hits, maybe a walk or so. But that kind of crushed a bit because we had a bit of momentum going that inning so definitely hurt us a little bit.”It was Post’s third time this season reaching the sixth inning and his fourth time allowing two runs or fewer in the outing. But for Beals, this was the kind of outing the team was looking for as he was able to keep his team in the ballgame against a tough opponent.“I think it was kind of a workman’s outing for him,” Beals said. “I thought he did a great job getting through six innings, a quality start for us and that’s what you expect out of the senior to do that. Give his ballclub a chance like he did tonight.”Post said that he was not his best at the beginning of the game, but settled in and found his groove towards the end.“It was kind of the same trends as the last three starts,” Post said. “First inning or two, just kind of moving to quick. And then I settle in and I felt a lot more comfortable towards the end of the game, or towards the end of my six innings.”One big reason the team struggled to provide Post with some runs was a result of the dominant outing turned in by Minnesota’s starting pitcher.Junior starting pitcher Lucas Gilbreath limited the Buckeyes to two runs, only one earned, across 6.2 innings of work. He did not issue a single walk during the game, while striking out seven batters. Beals tipped his cap to the opposing pitcher, acknowledging that their southpaw did a fine job keeping the Buckeye batters off-balance all day.“Gilbreath did a good job, he pitched the ball well, commanded both sides of the plate with his fastball,” Beals said. “We were prepared for arm-side run on the fastball, we weren’t as prepared for him to come inside like he did. I thought he did a good job of keeping our hitters off-balance with the fastball on both sides.”There has been a change in the OSU baseball schedule. Rather than play on Saturday and Sunday, OSU will face off against Minnesota in a doubleheader on Saturday starting at noon.Though the change in schedule was not announced until Friday afternoon, Beals said the team will be ready for the matchup and that they are just taking each game one at a time.“I hate to be cliche, but you can’t think about the doubleheader. We’ve got to win Game 1,” Beals said. “We’re going to go with (sophomore starting pitcher Connor) Curlis still in Game 1 and get a quality start. I think him being a left-hander versus the steady diet of left-handers that are in their lineup ought to be a solid matchup.”Curlis and sophomore starting pitcher Ryan Feltner will start Game 1 and Game 2 of the doubleheader, respectively. First pitch for Saturday’s game is scheduled for noon.
