MFM FC striker Stephen Odey says Enyimba captain Mfon Udoh has been his inspiration despite scoring more goals than the former Akwa United star.Odeh is the current top scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) with 18 goals, six more than Mfon.However, the Super Eagles invitee refused to compare himself with Mfon, who holds the record for the highest number of goals scored in a single NPFL season – having scored 23 goals in the2013-2014 season.“Mfon Udoh is my senior man,” Odey said after Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Enyimba.When asked if the Enyimba striker inspires him, he said “Sure”.On his team’s title hopes, he added: “There’s nothing impossible, Plateau United went away and drew and (Enyimba) came to our home to draw.“We can also go away to win our away games.”  Writer:                                                                                                                                                                  Kingsley Oyero 1:48 1.

Digital Fuel Marketing – Sponsor Profile – #bofcon2017

first_img StumbleUpon Share Submit Digital Fuel boosts US Vision with Pennsylvania trusted approval April 25, 2019 Related Articles SBC Webinars series presents U.S. Publishing – Navigating the Fog January 23, 2020 Share SBC’s Year In Review: March 2019’s big betting news December 23, 2019 Digital Fuel Marketing is sponsoring Betting on Football 2017, the fourth edition of the largest international football and betting trade conference at Chelsea FC’s Stamford Bridge.Ahead of the 3-5 May event, we spoke to Digital Fuel Account Director Andy Scott about why football is such an attractive sport for betting, how the market is changing from a consumer perspective and how betting and football stakeholders can work more effectively together.SBC: Why is football such an attractive sport for betting?AS: Primarily, football is an attractive sport for punters to bet on for the very same reasons that it became the most popular sport in the world – accessibility. With so much live football both TV and streamed, betting adds an extra level of engagement in fixtures that without such exposure might otherwise be a bit irrelevant. This might be highlighted by sports that are matched in terms of betting market options and structure but simply don’t get the wider coverage to allow punters to become fully engaged. There is so much data available to the general public to formulate opinion and no shortage of experts giving reason for a particular outcome that the consumer is going into every transaction feeling more empowered than ever. As Leicester proved last season, nothing is beyond the realms of possibility, games can change in an instant and it is a sport fuelled by opinion, passion and rivalry.SBC: From a consumer perspective, how is football betting changing?AS: Betting on football has never been more exciting for the punter. As incumbent tier one operators fight hard to retain their base and new challenger brands enter with both product and promotional innovation, you simply can’t afford to be left behind when it comes to your football product and how you market it – great from a consumer’s perspective.As brands identify new ways to harness the power of 1st, 2nd and 3rd party data, the packaging and relevance of content is subtly enhancing the experience for football consumers and moving the industry away from a reliance on promotions to retain.SBC: How can betting & football stakeholders work better and more effectively together?AS: Consumer engagement is what all parties are looking for and I think there is a huge opportunity to work closer to better understand the audiences that we are talking to.   Rightly so, there are big concerns around the level of betting exposure young football fans are subjected to, but technology allows us to profile and target users based on their demographic and wider preferences. Just because you are a 24–35 year old male that likes football, it does not mean that you like to bet.  This is extremely important for clubs and organisations that are looking to personalise their experience in ways that betting operators have been successfully doing for years.We are constantly looking for new ways to acquire and retain our desirable consumer and through more strategic partnerships; there is certainly an opportunity to improve the wider content strategy and thus user experience.SBC: What new technology do you feel will have the biggest impact on football betting?AS: From a marketing perspective, It is going to be interesting to see the impact of VAR. We have seen in other sports the opportunity for additional advertising during the review break. Will this be an opportunity to bring programmatic advertising opportunities in-play both in stadium and on TV? I am extremely excited and interested by the way search is advancing, particularly the rapid progression of machine learning, which is adding a new layer of context to what the user is looking for. Combining this technology with voice controlled assistants (VCA) and you could have an extremely immersive betting experience.  Imagine a scenario where you are watching Spurs win and ask your VCA what the price of Harry Kane to score next is? The response “Harry Kane is currently priced at 3/1 to score next and has hit the net in 4 of his last 5 games scoring with 30% of his shots, would you like to place a £10 bet?” Adding context to a betting option and pulling in a user’s previous betting behaviour data could be extremely powerful – all without having to scroll, click or look away from the match.  More immediately, advancements in geo-marketing and data management technology is allowing us to engage punters at a time when they are far more likely to respond. Again, utilising the power of data in ways that haven’t before been possible, means that we are in a far better position to improve product and communication and the appeal to a wider audience. SBC: What key agenda, debate or discussion do you want to hear at BOFCON 2017?AS: Given the work that we do at Digital Fuel, there are plenty of interesting topics around consumer engagement and I’ll be keen to hear thoughts around content marketing strategies.  With an interest in multiple territories, there will be a few market profile sessions that I will be dropping in on for any insight that might impact Digital Fuel and our clients as we look to capitalise on new opportunities.last_img read more

The World Cup’s Finest with SITA Director Robin Hutchison

first_img TVBET passes GLI test for five live games in Malta and Italy August 25, 2020 Share StumbleUpon Submit SBC Awards: The key to an effective submission August 28, 2020 Related Articles Share CT Gaming bolsters Italian profile with The Betting Coach  August 27, 2020 In The World Cup’s Finest we ask various individuals to delve into their own personal history of football’s quadrennial showpiece extravaganza, selecting a number of favourites as well as revealing what is their very first World Cup memory.This afternoon’s World Cup memories come courtesy of Square in the Air Director Robin Hutchison, who talks of a German invasion of Derbyshire, the sublime skills of Diego Maradona and having a soft spot for the plucky underdog.  Favourite World Cup:Player Franz Beckenbauer. Never saw him play, but Franz Beckenbauer. Drawing a veil over recent corruption allegations around the allocation of the World Cups to Russia and Qatar, that is. Absolute class on the pitch. He and the West Germany team stayed in the Peak District during the 1966 tournament because their early games were at Hillsborough and Villa Park. There was a lot of unease locally as it was only 20 years after the war and the Derbyshire Yeomanry took a hammering in North Africa and Italy. But they trained on the local public park and couldn’t have been friendlier. Humble lads and real ambassadors. Franz even went to a barn dance, I’m told.TeamHaiti and Zaire, 1974. Retrospectively, because I wasn’t born, I have a soft spot for Haiti and Zaire at the 1974 World Cup in West Germany. Both managed to concede 14 goals each in three group games, which is some going. The highlight was the Zaire full-back charging out of the wall, and hoofing the stationary ball into Row Z before the waiting Brazilians could take the free-kick. The first time I played men’s football our midfield enforcer (every team had one) asked the referee to hold his false teeth, before punching his opposite number unconscious into the mud of the centre circle. They’re both up there for me as special football moments.Goal Dennis Bergkamp (Netherlands v Argentina, 1998). Bergkamp against Argentina to win the Quarter Final against Argentina takes some beating. He’d been anonymous up until the point when Frank De Boer ale-housed the ball – though we are now contractually obliged to call it cultured Total Football – from one end of the pitch to the other. Bergkamp’s control was incredible, as was the flick inside milliseconds later to beat the full-back before again flicking it into the roof of the net past the despairing keeper. All in the 90th minute, as I recall.GameEngland v Argentina, (1986). There have been so many as a Scot brought up in England with allegiances to both nations. Wait, no there haven’t! I don’t think it’s my favourite, but the Hand of God game is the most memorable. That man Maradona again had just beaten Derby County’s Peter Shilton with a piece of cheating beyond the comprehension of a ten-year-old, when four minutes later he produced a goal whose skill was beyond the comprehension of all of us. “At least we got the Belgrano,” my dad said, less than diplomatically.KitScotland, 1986. The navy-blue jersey with the clipped collar was great, but the white shorts with the blue band round the middle were a work of sartorial genius. I got the full kit, including the red socks, for Christmas that year and looked so much better in it than Gordon Strachan. Denmark’s shaded Hummel kit from the same group – that progressed a little further in the tournament – was pretty good too. Very 1980s._________________________________________________________________First World Cup memory 25 June 1986 (Argentina v Belgium). A sunny summer’s evening in Derbyshire with a little bloke called Diego Maradona surrounded by what seemed like hundreds of legless Belgians. He was in Mexico; I was in Derbyshire. His second goal was sublime. I took an age drawing a picture of him at school the next day, complete with Puma football boots. I still have it. My dad says he was the best he’d ever seen – and he was one of 127,000 people who saw Alfredo Di Stefano and Ferenc Puskas destroy Eintracht Frankfurt at Hampden in 1960.The World Cup’s Finest is to be a regular feature during the Russia World Cup, profiling a different individual each week day.last_img read more
