first_imgLeicester City forward Demarai Gray has confirmed that he is ready to sign a new deal with the Foxes.Gray produced his best display in a Leicester City shirt to inspire the team to a 2-0 home victory over Everton in new manager Claude Puel’s first game in charge.Speaking on his contractual situation, Gray revealed that the parties involved wanted the managerial uncertainty surrounding the club to be resolved before any talk of a new deal.In his words, he said:“We wanted to see who the new manager was, a bit of stability, but I’m happy playing football here.”“It’s for my representative and the backroom staff to deal with. All I can do is what I’ve done [against Everton]. When they give me the phone call we’ll get it sorted.” he added.The England Under-21 international joined the club from Birmingham City for £3.7m in January 2016 and Sunday’s game against Everton was only his 12th league start in addition to a whooping 39 substitute appearances.Speaking further, Gray said:“I’ve always said I’m ready to play and I’ve waited a long time.”“Hopefully now this can be a start of a run of games for me.“It’s what I need, to get some confidence and momentum myself and most importantly develop as a player.” he concluded.RelatedTammy Abraham Gets England Call UpSeptember 29, 2017In “England”Premier League Review (Sunday): New Manager, Same Result For Everton As South Coast Derby Ends In StalemateOctober 30, 2017In “England”Craig Shakespeare latest casualty of Leicester City title hangoverOctober 18, 2017In “England”last_img read more

first_imgLast month’s inaugural Formula 1 Esports Series final was an enthralling event, but it proved just as engaging as it was entertaining, with over 20.5 million impressions recorded.The statistic, released yesterday, is a formidable figure, especially for an esport that is still in its infancy. For the F1’s project to have had such an impact will surely have already justified its existence – few other marketing methods are as engrossing as a competitive, virtual version of your tournament to introduce spectators to your sport.It will have certainly helped that the final itself, played on the FIA’s official videogame of their World Championship – Codemaster’s F1 2017 – was a thrilling, to-and-fro affair, with Brendon Leigh’s skillful last-gasp overtake providing a fitting conclusion to a riveting race. Indeed, the spectacle was successful enough that it seemed to open the door for racing games to become an esports mainstay.Formula 1’s Esports Series final also accrued six million video views, with 1.8m on Facebook alone who watched the Brit edge out Chile’s Fabrizio Donoso Delgado and Germany’s Sven Zurner to the crown.A further 1.6 million video views on Instagram vindicated the use of the F1’s main social media pages to distribute esports content, proving that existing Formula 1 fans are interested enough to check out a gaming tournament, run on a simulated track, and with virtual vehicles.Likewise, the broadcast found popularity on traditional television networks, where almost half a million combined viewers tuned in to the semi-finals and finals in the United Kingdom alone, reaching numbers previously unseen for televised esports events in the nation. The UK was first out of the 123 countries receiving the broadcast for audience figures.Impressions of the Formula 1 Esports Series Finals, by platformHowever, as successful as the show was for supplying existing racing fans with further content, the final failed to make any real inroads on Twitch. An underwhelming total of 54,000 views (with a concurrent audience which peaked over 8,000) suggests that Formula 1 has not yet managed to crack the core of the gaming audience. That could be an issue, if enticing the affluent and diverse Twitch demographic is the focus of the esports production.There’s no need to start ringing the alarm bells just yet though – the figures from the impressions made over Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram demonstrates that the event will have certainly turned heads, and there will doubtless be individuals who became aware of the race after its conclusion. The 556,000 views currently on the YouTube video of the final race is testament to that, and with the video’s reception being overwhelmingly positive, it wouldn’t be a stretch to suggest that a fair few will return as live viewers for next year’s competition.Formula 1’s Director of Digital and New Business, Frank Arthofer, was confident that the phenomenal outreach of the final warranted further tournaments. “The audience numbers we reached with this first edition have been incredible, confirming we made the right choice when we decided to begin this new adventure for Formula 1,” he said. “The engagement with a broad and committed younger generation of F1 and esports fans is something that we are proud to support and nurture, and we look forward to establishing a season-long series in 2018.”It is evident that the Formula 1 team is not content to rest on their laurels here. Alongside a new format in the works for 2018’s Esports Series, Julian Tan, Manager of Digital Initiatives & Growth, has his eyes on appeasing the community’s growing thirst for esports content:“The audience has been great not only in terms of quantity, but also in terms of quality, with 94% of the fans who thought the Finals were exciting and 95% who would like to see F1 run more events like this one,” he said. Tan also pointed out that it is still early on after the event’s conclusion, and “all the above-mentioned figures will continue to grow.”Esports Insider says: With ‘growth’ the name of the game for Formula 1 Esports, 2018 could prove a pivotal year in the project’s progress that really sees them galvanise racing esports to greater heights. After such an impressive inaugural foray into the esports scene, who would bet against them?Formula 1 is just another example of how traditional competition can benefit from an esports venture.

first_imgThe battle for dominance between Nike and adidas is once again reshaping the commercial landscape of European football according to research released today.With the release of Repucomand PR Marketing’s latest Kit Supplier Report, figures show shirt sales in Europe continue to be big business for kit suppliers.Approximately 13 million shirts were sold by the 98 clubs of the top five European football leagues last season (2013/14), up over 14% on the 2011/12 season two years prior.English Premier League (EPL) clubs sold the majority of this figure, selling over five million shirts in total. This compares with clubs of Spain’s Primera División (3.10m), the German Bundesliga (2.32m), France’s Ligue 1 (1.22m) and Italy’s Serie A (1.18m).In the coming season however, of these top European leagues, it is only the EPL where Nike is not the most dominant kit supplier.Of the 25 brands supplying kits to teams of Europe’s top five leagues ahead of the 2014/15 season, Nike has outpaced its German rival adidas for the first time since the 2009/10 season. The US sports giant will kit out 26 clubs, an increase of five on last year’s total, whilst adidas will supply 18, a figure which has dropped by four. Nike now supply the kits to just over a quarter (26.5%) of all clubs in Europe’s top five leagues. In comparison, adidas’ kits represent an 18.4% share of the market.Andrew Walsh, football expert at Repucom, said: “In terms of revenue it is the top ten European teams which dominate, delivering 65% of total shirt sales in the five key football leagues, most of which coming from clubs in the English Premier League, adidas’ strongest market.“Whilst Nike may be winning in the quantity stakes, Adidas is certainly not bowing out in the running for market superiority, far from it in fact. The brand is now starting to flex its muscles by supplying Europe’s biggest clubs.”Currently, Nike’s top five deals which combined are worth approximately €125m per year include FC Barcelona, Manchester United FC, Paris Saint-Germain FC, Juventus FC and FC Internazionale.adidas’s top five deals include Real Madrid FC, Chelsea FC, FC Bayern Munich, AC Milan and Olympique de Marseille and total approximately €135m per year, €10m more than Nike. However, ahead of the 2015/16 season, adidas will be taking two of Nike’s biggest club deals; EPL giants, Manchester United and Italian Champions, Juventus FC.Andrew Walsh continued: “Manchester United’s Nike deal is currently worth an estimated €31.5m per year, a figure dwarfed by adidas’ new €94m deal, a difference of over €62m. The deal with Juventus will also increase, from €19m to approximately €23.25m per year.“adidas’s position in the market is certainly one of ‘quality’, already official partner of World Football’s biggest tournament, the FIFA World Cup, as well as World Champions, Germany and the UEFA Champions League, now they are moving to kit out the world’s biggest clubs underlining their position as football’s leading sports brand in terms of sponsorship. A title that Nike will of course continue to rival.“How the strategies of these big brands develop will ultimately play a defining role in shaping the commerciality of the industry itself and it is key for clubs to see how these two giants are carving up the European football apparel market. Whilst Nike looks to maximise the number of teams it supplies, Adidas is going for the most popular, most followed and ultimately biggest selling clubs in the world.”Dr. Rohlmann of PR Marketing said: “Kit deals in football are increasingly becoming more important in achieving a stronger market share for sports brands. “These companies significantly benefit from supplying top clubs through both jersey sales and a rise to their reputation internationally.”In addition, Puma has been able to strengthen its market position as the third major power in European football apparel with its new deal with Arsenal FC, formerly supplied, again, by Nike.Including its deal with German side, Borussia Dortmund, Puma now kit out nine clubs in Europe’s top five leagues. Italian brand Kappa’s eight deals means it is the only other company to supply more than four clubs ahead of the 2014/15 season.last_img read more
