Jose Mourinho Discusses Video Assistant Referring

World renowned football manager Jose Mourinho, and recently retired footballer Samuel Eto’o took to the LaLiga Headquarters in Madrid to discuss speed & innovation in football, including the hot topic of Video Assistant Referring [VAR]. 

The duo spoke at an exclusive event, as they helped launch the global partnership between LiveScore and LaLiga. The collaboration will see LiveScore support the Spanish league’s new Replay360º feature, an Intel-powered technology, that will allow La Liga audiences to access 38 individual camera positions across Spanish stadiums, delivering football’s most immersive coverage. 

The duo were also joined on the panel by LaLiga President, Javier Tebas, who explained how the partnership is further evidence of the league’s drive to introduce the right technologies to improve fans’ matchday experience both inside the stadium and at home, LiveScore Ambassador, Jose Mourinho, commented: 

“It is important football continues to innovate and embrace technologies that can develop the game for clubs and leagues but, and I say this after my first summer as a fan, that the emotion remains in football. LiveScore’s partnership with LaLiga most definitely puts the fan first.”


The discussion comes at an exciting moment for technology in football as the Premier League becomes the latest competition to introduce Video Assistant Refereeing (VAR), after its introduction to LaLiga in the 2018/19 season. Mourinho believes that this is a positive move for the sport.

“Of course, as a manager sometimes you receive a favorable decision and sometimes a disastrous one. I like the essence of VAR to reduce human error and we will all learn it and adapt to it, but I hope we will still maintain the raw excitement. Before, when a goal went in, I used to look at the referee, now I look at the screen!” 

With its core pillars of speed, simplicity and reliability, LiveScore has been at the forefront of the drive to use technology to enhance the experience of fans across multiple sports, and football in particular.

New Season Ticket Agreement between Sports Events

New Season Ticket Agreement between Sports Events 365 and Atletico Madrid will Allow Fans to Get Closer to the Team’s Football Stars.

Among other options, buyers of upgraded tickets from Sports Events 365 will be able to be part of the welcome team and arrive two hours before the match to receive the players.

Sports Events 365, the international provider of tickets for sports and music events worldwide, has expanded its existing season ticket agreement for the 2019/2020 season with Atletico Madrid, one of the leading clubs in Spain and Europe. This season is expected to be especially exciting due to the addition of Portuguese forward Joao Felix, the 19-year-old acquired earlier this year for 113 million Euro by the Spanish club. The wonderkid, who arrived at Atletico this summer, is already being dubbed the next Cristiano Ronaldo.

The expanded agreement offers fans new and unique opportunities before and after games. The options available include being part of the welcome team and arriving two hours before the match to receive the players; arriving four hours before the match for an exclusive guided tour through the Wanda Metropolitano stadium; a penalty shootout experience at the stadium 15 minutes after the end of the game and the midfield experience involving taking a picture on the field after the
match. The expanded agreement offers clubs additional sources of income.

“We are looking to offer this model first implemented with Atletico Madrid with other clubs interested in increasing their revenues,” says Sefi Donner, founder and CEO of Sports Events 365. He noted that demand for Atletico tickets witnessed phenomenal growth after the club won the 2018 UEFA Super Cup. Donner predicts “a further 15% growth in sales in the Spanish market in the coming year.”

Sports Events 365 also has season ticket agreements with other top La Liga clubs as well as with Italy’s AS Roma. The company is looking to sign similar agreements with other leading European clubs as part of its expansion strategy and direct contact with 60 major football clubs in Spain, Italy, England, France and Portugal. The season ticket agreements allow Sports Events 365 to cater to the needs of groups of tourists who are looking for a much larger number of tickets to
matches.

The Best Sporting Events for Traveling to in 2020

Author: Robert Bell

Mixing sport and travel is a fantastic way to see the world. If you want to see the best action that the world has to offer, then where do you need to head to in 2020?

The following are a few of the events that you might want to see. They offer terrific sporting spectacles, as well as perhaps providing you with an incentive to visit interesting new places.

Superbowl 2020, Miami Gardens, Florida

We don’t yet know which teams will be competing in Superbowl LIV. Yet, we do know that it will be held on February 2, 2020, in the setting of Miami Gardens, Florida. This will be the sixth time that this football game is held in this stadium, but the first time in 10 years.

You can already start planning your Superbowl 2020 trip before the competing teams are decided, as tickets can now be bought online. Keen football fans will know that New England Patriots and Kansa City Chiefs are already among the favorites to win this event, according to the latest Super Bowl odds.

While you are in Florida, you can enjoy natural attractions such as Oleta River State Park, Greynolds Park, and Miramar Pineland Park. Of course, the wonderful beaches and restaurants are also pretty tempting there.

2020 Summer Olympics, Tokyo

When it comes to giant sporting events, there is nothing quite like the Summer Olympics. The 2020 event is officially known as the Games of the XXXII Olympiad and is set to be a spectacular affair.

There are going to be some interesting new events added to the Olympic roster here, including 3×3 basketball, Madison cycling, and freestyle BMX, as well as surfing and skateboarding. The Japanese authorities are building 11 new venues for the event, with the National Stadium in Tokyo being the main venue. Most of the action will take place within a few kilometers of the Olympic village.

You won’t want to miss visiting the Japanese capital without sampling some of the other amazing things to do in this city. From the panoramic views from the Tokyo Skytree observation deck to the Sensō-ji, which is the oldest temple in the city, to the Imperial Palace, this is a place where you will discover unique attractions.

Champions League Final, Istanbul

The biggest prize in European club soccer will be at stake when two teams compete in the UEFA Champions League final in Turkey. The setting will be the Atatürk Olympic Stadium, which is where Liverpool famously came back from 0-3 to dramatically win the trophy from Milan in 2005.

This stadium has a 76,761, all-seated capacity and is located on the western, European side of the city. It was built as part of Turkey’s bid for the 2008 Summer Olympics and is renowned for both its size and the intense atmosphere generated inside it.

Before or after the game, there is plenty to explore in this historic city that straddles Europe and Asia. Hagi Sophia, the Blue Mosque, and Topkapi Palace Museum are all outstanding. However, for many visitors it is wandering through the mammoth Grand Bazaar that is their lingering memory of Istanbul.

Winter X Games, Calgary

The Winter X Games will be held in Calgary from 2020 through to 2022. This extreme sports event is expected to bring some 75,000 spectators to the Canadian city each of those years. They will also be hosting shows and special events while the games are going on.

Calgary was host to the 1998 Winter Olympics and has held many sporting events since then. If you are looking for something to do away from the games, then the local zoo and Calgary Tower, with a revolving restaurant at the top, are among the big attractions.

No matter what kind of sport you like, combining it with a new travel experience will let you get an unforgettable trip.

U.S. Soccer Foundation’s “It’s Everyone’s Game!” 25th Anniversary Celebration

Nearly 500 supporters of the U.S. Soccer Foundation came together at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles – on the pitch of Major League Soccer’s LAFC – Monday evening to commemorate the organization’s achievements of growing the game and providing youth recreation opportunities in underserved communities throughout its 25-year history.

The U.S. Soccer Foundation’s 25th anniversary celebration featured many of the women and men who have been a part of the organization throughout its history and supporters from the most storied soccer teams in American history, including members of the “‘99ers,” the World Cup-winning 1999 U.S. Women’s National Team. The Foundation and its supporters also used the 25th anniversary celebration to highlight the contributions of five national leaders who are bringing soccer to underserved communities nationwide.

“We’ve been honored to play a role in the phenomenal growth of the game in the United States,” said Ed Foster-Simeon, President & CEO of the U.S. Soccer Foundation. “Sport has existed for millennia because there’s a payoff for everyone who plays – not just those who make it to the very top. Mastery of soccer skills builds confidence and self-esteem. The game teaches teamwork and leadership. We look forward to the next 25 years as we continue to make soccer everyone’s game.”
Award Recipients

Visionary Award

Target has been a leader in corporate responsibility and community-building for years, uplifting neighborhoods nationwide by setting the bar for investing in communities. In 2017, the company made a $14 million commitment to youth soccer to bring the game to more kids and families across the country. This investment included the launch of a grant program to provide local organizations with funding for player and field equipment as well as training for volunteer coaches. In its work with the U.S. Soccer Foundation, Target exhibits exemplary leadership and dedication to the Foundation’s mission to increase access to the sport in underserved communities. Target was the first to make a significant contribution and fund the creation of 100 mini-pitches with the Foundation, providing safe places to play nationwide.

Impact Award

Major League Soccer has been a leading force behind the growth of the game in the United States. Founded in 1993 as part of the U.S. bid to host the 1994 FIFA World Cup, MLS debuted its first season in 1996 with 10 teams. The league excelled in growing its fan base and today 24 teams play in the U.S. and Canada. In addition to growing the sport professionally, the organization has made a significant commitment to addressing important social issues and enriching the lives of those in need through MLS WORKS, the league’s social responsibility platform.

Trailblazer Award

The 1999 U.S. Women’s National Team will forever have an iconic place in soccer. Aside from being one of the best teams to ever play, the team carved out an important place in sports history by solidifying a foundation for women in soccer. The sheer talent, energy, and determination the ‘99ers encompassed when they clinched the World Cup remains one of the single most inspiring moments in soccer today. Players from this historic team continue to find ways to give back to their communities, broadening access to the game and continuing to energize people around the sport. As trailblazers, this team has served as excellent ambassadors for the game and role models for youth.

Inspiration Award

The players of the 2019 U.S. Women’s National Team have never disappointed. They will defend their FIFA Women’s World Cup title in France this summer. They represent the latest iteration in an evolution of greatness, with the U.S. Women’s National Team considered the most successful in the world due to their consistent high standard of excellence, three World Cup titles, four Olympic gold medals, and other competitive awards. The team has inspired countless young women and men to dream big and believe in themselves through a shared vision to increase excitement about soccer. Their impressive talent, combined with their teamwork and community engagement, highlight the best of this sport and showcase the critical skills young people can learn on the field and apply in their lives.

Call of Duty® boasts over 200 million global players. The latest game in the series, Black Ops 4 delivers the deepest, most engaging Black Ops game that Treyarch has ever created, with three distinct modes of play: Multiplayer, Zombies and Blackout.

To fully appreciate it, the creators of Vantablack, the super-black coating that holds the world record as the darkest substance made by man, have created a special version of Vantablack known as VBx2 and applied it to every wall of a unique gaming space, the Black Ops House.

Dele Alli became completely immersed within the action of the game as playing in pitch-black conditions highlighted the color and vibrancy on the screen.

Talking about playing with his teammates, Dele was able to enjoy the Multiplayer gritty, grounded combat via the more tactical, team-based experience; as well as celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the original Call of Duty Zombies with the three fully-featured Zombies experiences.

The new game features the return of the iconic Pick 10 system, along with a series of innovations in weapon controls, combat flow, health regeneration, and player movement. Black Ops 4 also contains a combination of new and returning Specialists, each with their own unique equipment and playstyles, allowing players to not only be powerful alone, but devastating as a team working together. It also introduces the all-new Battle Royale mode, Blackout that brings together characters, locations, weapons and gear from across the series in all-out survival combat, all with Black Ops signature gameplay.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is published by Activision and developed by Treyarch with additional development support from Raven Software and PC development with Beenox. The title is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 12th.
