JDG Sport has secured investment to launch a new in-house publication, Love Premier League.
Rugby equipment retailer, RugbyStore, recently ran a survey involving 10,000 British participants to determine just how many sports fans are willing to pay the going rate to attend a Football or Rugby match.
JDG answered an SOS from the National Football Museum to take part in their #FM100 challenge – a Guinness World Record attempt involving the Football Manager Touch 2016 game.
Featured in the museum’s ‘Pitch to Pixel: The World of Football Gaming’ exhibition, the challenge involves 100 different managers playing the game on the same save, for at least an hour each, over 100 days.
Shirt sponsorship in the Premier League can be a lucrative source of income, and with Sky TV’s new £5.136bn broadcast rights deal set to kick in at the start of next season clubs could find themselves inundated with offers from companies looking to promote their name.
The city of Liverpool is set to benefit from a huge investment into grassroots football. The £17m investment is the biggest of its kind and will be made up £4.4 million from Liverpool City Council and £12.6 million from the FA, Premier League and Sport England.
