So you’ll often find me talking to you from some sporting venue today is no different, I’m at Stamford Bridge the home of Chelsea Football Club and I’m here to go to another one of these exhibitions. You very often see me going to, and the exhibition today is betting on football. It’S a very niche exhibition, high ticket price. It’S not something that you tend to see appetize, that much but yeah, I’m gon na go inside. Have a few meetings.
Have a few discussions? Take things from there, Jamie retina is even on their radar; no, no! No! No! No!
No! No! I hope that the people I spoke with del piero. He knew all about it and he was also interested in doing it. Everybody sees the possibility to help these players to get you know to get it out of the you know that stinky room to play all the time and make it more serious.
That’S the reason why we get involved so I’ve come into one of the corporate hospitality or the boxes at Stamford Bridge here, and so, if you’re a football fan, you can have a look and see what the pitch looks like from this particular angle. Now, because of the lighting, I couldn’t get me in the shots and the pitch, so I filmed the pitch separately on a fill-in shot and what I’m going to do now on this part of the video is just pan across there, so that you can have a Look at the pitch – I have been here before actually for Champions League matches and a couple of other matches in the Premier League in other tournaments as well, but this is the first time that I’ve actually been in one of the little boxes here now. Obviously, there’s no football going on, but it’s interesting to have a look and compare it to other areas that I’ve been to, but actually Stamford Bridge has always felt rather small to me, but obviously space is at a huge premium in this part of London.
So it sort of been built up around the old ground, and I I went to the old ground many many years ago as a Southampton fan anyhow. Hopefully, this will give you some idea of what it looks like and the pitch and what the view looks like from this particular area of Stamford Bridge now the actual conference itself is mainly business-to-business as I’ve mentioned, and therefore it’s probably not of that much interest to A lot of people on the other side of the industry. However, I look at it with with two different hats on really I’m here to talk to other people, and most of these conferences are about that. It’S an opportunity for everybody to get in the room at the same time. Discuss things. Do deals, discuss what they’re going to do this year.
An issue is quite critical in terms of its the World Cup, so the betting on Football Conference this year has much more significance because of the World Cup. So I’m looking at analytics, I’m looking at a data provision, I’m looking at all of those sort of things. Just to see a is there some benefit in some of the services they’re being offered and B. Is it something that you know I may be able to negotiate into potential at sample in the future?
I’M always on the outlook for that now generally, the cost of these sort of things is absolutely prohibitive to anything that we do with betangel we’d be talking. We’D have to raise the fees for Bettinger to about a thousand pounds per user or something to be able to get on some of these feeds or some of this data. However, it’s worth having the discussion, you never know what could happen and from a personal perspective, you know that sometimes there are interesting products that are coming out or do to come out. There will influence the way that people BET or trade, so I’m always interested in the industry from that perspective as well, so anyway, lots of meetings to do and hopefully I’ll that’s. Given you a bit of an insight as to what this conference is all about, and also giving you the chance to see what Stafford bridge looks like from the inside, you
