Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it was confirmed that JBO will serve as the team’s official regional betting partner in Asia from the current 2019-20 season.JBO also has commercial deals in place with various other sporting properties, including the Dota 2 esports organisation, through which it title sponsors its Asian Masters League.“We see our partnership with Bologna as an opportunity to connect with football fans across the world and it fits in perfectly with our own rapidly expanding global network,” a JBO spokesperson said.“The most important thing for us is to bring new experiences to our fans who have always been very supportive towards us. We look forward to working with Bologna during an exciting season of football.”Christoph Winterling, marketing and commercial director at Bologna, added: “This agreement is our first international partnership outside of Italy and demonstrates the continued growth of our club on a global level as well as the interest shown in one of the most historical Italian football clubs.“Moreover we are happy that JBO will be first partner of ours in Asia to benefit from our brand new virtual advertising technology. It is an excellent opportunity for the club to develop this exciting space that is creating new partnership opportunities.”The new link-up comes after Italy earlier this year introduced a ‘Dignity Decree’, which issued a blanket ban on gambling advertising across all media platforms in the country.The law states that Italian companies, including sports teams, are not permitted to display advertising or marketing communications that feature gambling-led prizes, incentives, events, markets or products.Last month, Serie A side Juventus entered into a partnership with 10bet after the Dignity Decree came into effect. At the time, a Juventus spokesperson said the deal is focused on markets outside of the team’s native Italy.Image: Prugna Asian online gambling operator JBO has agreed a regional partnership with Italian Serie A football club Bologna.

The supplier also saw its losses widen five-fold in the first half of 2020 as the impact of Covid-19 led to a 38.7% drop in revenue to £20.2m. Of this, £13.1m came from the racing and digital division, down 27.4% amid the cancellation of most horse racing worldwide. Its retail network of arcades and slot machines was shuttered from March, only reopening between June and July, in line with restrictions which saw the maximum number of visitors in venues significantly reduced. Veikkaus revealed in August it expected its 2020 profits to fall by as much as €300m (£268.6m/$354.5m), after reporting a 28.1% year-on-year decline in gross revenue and 33.6% drop in profit for the first half of the year. Veikkaus senior vice president and chief information officer, Ari Aarnihuhta, said: “Veikkaus has been very pleased with the quality of the Sportech solution and the responsiveness of the Sportech team,” said Veikkaus senior vice president and chief information officer Ari Aarnihuhta. In addition to the extension to its existing agreement, Veikkaus will also now benefit from Sportech’s tote Service Layer, to offer pari-mutuel betting on horse racing from 4,500 points of sale, a major increase from the current number of around 1,000. Regions: Nordics Finlandcenter_img Gross gaming revenue for the six months to 30 June fell to €607.2m, with Veikkaus estimating that the total was down by around €200m as a result of the disruption caused by novel coronavirus (Covid-19).

Scott Higginbotham sets up try with crosskick then scores with goose step

first_imgMonday Mar 3, 2014 Scott Higginbotham sets up try with crosskick then scores with goose step The Melbourne Rebels got their Super Rugby season off to a flying start with a 35-14 bonus point win over the Cheetahs. The five try victory came about through some great leadership, and play, from Wallaby Scott Higginbotham. The win was their biggest in Super Rugby to date, and on the back of strong preseason victories, they’re in confident mood and will continue to put bums on seats in Melbourne. It was also their first win in four encounters with the Bloemfontein based side, who last year made the playoffs.Despite losing the likes of James O’Connor and Kurtley Beale, the Rebels have tightened up aspects of their game that let them down in the past, particularly defence, and in Higginbotham have a genuine leader.“Higginbotham was quite outstanding in terms of how he was so instrumental in terms of leading by example,” said former Auckland Blues Super Rugby winner Sean Fitzpatrick. “He has been crucial in terms of the team culture and what it takes to be successful.”The 23-times capped Wallaby set up a Jason Woodward try in the corner through some excellent quick thinking, and a decent amount of skill and confidence too. His crosskick from a quick tap penalty was perfectly placed, and possibly only outdone by the way the match finished.The final try was scrappy but it came from a deep counter attack and after going through a number of hands, found the big number eight out on the wing, who opted for a sprint, goose step and fend before diving in at the corner and dotting down with one hand.“Scott Higginbotham’s try was excellent. He really got stuck in and inspired his players – they never let up and even when the Cheetahs came back in the second half, he rallied his players to close them down,” said former Wallaby flyhalf Michael Lynagh. “A great performance from him. He made a lot of good decisions with and without the ball.”It was two great pieces of play by a hefty number eight, so worth sharing in the video below.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Extinction Rebellion crowdfunder nears £1m

As well as its main UK campaign on Chuffed, it is running one on CrowdJustice to help with rebels’ legal costs. This crowdfunder has a current total of just under £340,000 and is aiming to reach £750,000. It will be used to cover legal fees in longer or more complex cases, to appeal verdicts and sentences to help protect the rights of future rebels, and to act as a safety net for rebels whose local group fundraising needs support.It also has an international crowdfunder on Chuffed. It says this money will be ‘transparently dedicated to delivering more trainings, facilitating conflict resilience, and expanding and strengthening communications and tech infrastructure. Seed funding will be provided to national groups to become self sustaining, and funds will be given to support the work of the International Support Team in these efforts.’ This has so far raised just over £80,000 of a £150,000 target.As well as asking for financial support, Extinction Rebellion is also asking for people, space, and items to auction. Those with skills to offer, such as fundraising, graphic design, and accountancy are asked to email [email protected], while anyone with space to offer – either permanent office spaces or temporary meeting places – that it could use to help mobilise the local population, or auction items worth £100 or more such as antiques, promises of services, and quality second hand objects, are asked to contact [email protected] is the second week of the International Rebellion, and has seen a ban on Extinction Rebellion protests in London by the Metropolitan Police. Yesterday’s activity included around 100 mothers with babies blockading the entrance to Google HQ in London Kings Cross in response to news that Google has donated to organisations campaigning against environmental legislation and questioning the science behind the climate crisis. It also saw XR Youth drop a banner reading ‘YouTube Stop Platforming Climate Denial’ from on top of the YouTube Space in London Kings Cross and delivering a letter to its employees.

A freelancer died in Burmese army custody, with the military claiming he was shot while trying to grab a soldier’s weapon

first_imgNews to go further Organisation May 31, 2021 Find out more October 30, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 A freelancer died in Burmese army custody, with the military claiming he was shot while trying to grab a soldier’s weapon The army suspected Aung Kyaw Naing of being a member of the rebel secessionist movement in Karen state, which borders Mon. False information had been circulating online for several days, including photos of members of the DBKA who falsely identified the journalist as an active member of the armed group.For journalists, the killing recalls the rule of the authoritarian military junta that was officially dissolved in 2011. Reporters Without Borders expresses its condolences to Aung Kyaw Naing’s family and friends.“This murder is a tragic demonstration of the government’s step backwards over the past year,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk. “With the International Day to End Impunity for crimes against journalists approaching, the government must take all measures to shed light on this case.”Lucie Morillon, the free press organization’s programme director, also raised the issue of accountability. “We remind the Burmese government of the importance of fighting impunity,” Morillon said. “Last year, we brought to the attention of President Thein Sein and Deputy Information Minister Ye Htut the need to identify those responsible for army crimes against Burmese and foreign journalists under the junta. That task is vital for changing the mentality of the security forces and promoting a sense of responsibility among them.”Aung Kyaw Naing disappeared on 30 September. His wife alerted the media during the days that followed. But not until 25 October did the army tell the Press Council that the journalist had been killed three weeks earlier and had already been buried.The false allegations that Aung Kyaw Naing was a member of the Karen army circulated after the disclosure to the Press Council. He regularly covered ethnic tensions in the country’s south, near the border with Thailand. He worked for several publications, including the Yangon Times, Eleven Media Group, and The Voice.Burma ranks 145th of 180 countries in the Reporters Without Borders 2014 world press freedom index.
