a month ago​Man Utd could take pay cut from Adidas over Champions League no-show

first_img​Man Utd could take pay cut from Adidas over Champions League no-showby Ian Ferrisa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United stand to lose out on significant sponsorship revenue from Adidas should they fail to qualify for the Uefa Champions League this season, claims the Manchester Evening News (MEN), reports, www.sportspromedia.com/.According to the Manchester daily, there is a clause in Adidas’ contract with United that states that if the club fail to secure a place in European club soccer’s elite tournament for two consecutive seasons the sportswear brand reduces its payment by 30 per cent.United’s deal with Adidas was signed back in 2015 and brings in UK£75 million (US$91.9 million) per season. A 30 per cent reduction on that figure would be UK£55.2 million (US$68.4 million). Whilst still a substantial amount, that would drop the club behind Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea in terms of annual revenue from their kit deal.The contract with Adidas is one of the club’s main sources of revenue alongside their principal partnership with Chevrolet, worth UK£64 million (US$80 million) per season, and their sleeve sponsorship with Kohler, which club sources claim is worth UK£20 million (US$27.5 million) per season.

No problem for Mercedes if Hamilton skydives or surfs

first_imgMelbourne: Mercedes team chief Toto Wolff on Friday said he had no problem with star driver Lewis Hamilton’s passion for extreme sports, despite the injury risk to such a lucrative asset. Hamilton’s adrenaline-fuelled off-season hobbies, including skydiving, surfing, snowboarding and riding motorbikes, have raised eyebrows in the past. But Wolff said the Briton was an adult and knew what helped him “decompress from racing”. “Of course, I’m always worried and we had a laugh last year because I couldn’t get hold of him or my chief strategist or one of the race engineers because they were racing motorbikes,” he said. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian Open”But Lewis is not an 18-or 19-year-old young man anymore, he is a five-time world champion and he knows exactly what works for him and what doesn’t. “All these activities in my experience are not a negative distraction but something he enjoys doing and every time he decompresses from racing, he comes back stronger.” “We mustn’t be judgemental,” he added. “Some people go on a mediation seminar in India, or skydiving, others are out for the ladies.” Hamilton, 34, said this week that his off-season was “a really precious time”. Also Read – Fast bowler Behrendorff to undergo spinal surgery”You get to spend (time) with family and friends and it’s the time you don’t get to think about racing,” he said. “Then once the season starts you’re on tour the whole year and you never really lose sight of your targets.” Red Bull chief Christian Horner agreed with Wollf that drivers shouldn’t be restricted in what they did and there were no clauses in his team’s contracts to limit dangerous activities for drivers Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly. “With Red Bull at the end of the day, no risk no fun,” he said. “We don’t actively encourage our drivers to go and take a lot of risk, but they’ve got to live their lives and have some fun along the way.”last_img read more

Athletic department centennial celebration delayed for Obama

The Ohio State athletic department was prepared to kick off its centennial celebration commemorating 100 years as a department and as a member of the Big Ten conference this week. That was until President Barack Obama announced his plans to visit the OSU campus on Saturday. The athletic department’s yearlong celebration was slated to begin at the Buckeye baseball and softball home games. Fan festivities were planned, with several baseball and softball alumni scheduled to attend. In an email to The Lantern, OSU athletic director Gene Smith said he and several members of the committee involved in the celebration planning decided that it was best to postpone the events to minimize traffic concerns in the area around the Schottenstein Center. “The presidential visit is complex with security,” Smith said. “Our priority is to ensure the games themselves go smoothly, softball and baseball, and make it as easy as possible for the fans to enjoy the contests our student-athletes compete in.” Janine Oman, assistant athletic director for sport performance and head of the committee overseeing the centennial celebration, said everything was set to begin this week, but the unexpected circumstances forced a change in the schedule of events. “We were originally planning on doing kickoff games this weekend,” Oman said. “However, the president is coming right at the same time.” While the games will still take place Saturday, the fan activities will be rescheduled due to the arrival of the president and his subsequent speech Saturday morning at the Schottenstein Center. Oman said the first kickoff games will take place Sept. 21 at the field hockey and women’s volleyball games. Austin Stewart, a first-year in international studies, said he was unaware the athletic department was planning a celebration set to begin this week. With the president coming though, he said it’s probably a good idea that it has been moved back. “The president is gonna take a lot of attention away … that would be with the 100-year celebration,” Stewart said. While he admitted he is not really a fan of the president, Stewart said he would rather go see him speak Saturday than attend the anniversary festivities because of the rare experience it presents. “It’s the president of the United States coming to campus. That doesn’t really happen all that often,” Stewart said. “I would probably rather go see him just because that’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” Obama will speak at the Schottenstein Center Saturday at 1:25 p.m., with the doors opening at 10:30 a.m. First Lady Michelle Obama will join her husband in support of his campaign. The public event on OSU’s campus is the official beginning of the 2012 election, and Obama has a rally planned at Virginia Commonwealth University later on Saturday. This rally marks the second visit Obama has made to OSU’s campus in about two months. Republican candidate Mitt Romney has also been in central Ohio in the past week. Romney spoke at Otterbein College last Thursday about the economy and his plan to bring the nation back to a world leader. read more
