Football’s First Billion Dollar Brand? Not Barcelona, Manchester United!

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 8 giugno 2015

real-madridDespite another season without silverware, Manchester United has reclaimed its position at the top of the Brand Finance Football 50, knocking Bayern Munich off the top spot. The Red Devils have become the first billion dollar football brand, with 63% growth bringing total brand value to $1.2 billion. Barca’s resounding 3-1 win over Juventus caps a year of stunning successes (including La Liga title and the Copa del Rey) in which the club has made history by becoming the first to win the treble twice. Saturday’s game alone added $28 million to Barca’s brand value, contributing to a overall increase on 2014 of $151 million dollars, bringing the total value of the brand to $773 million.However as glorious as Barca’s record may be, it simply has not been able to harness its brand to the same extent as rivals Real Madrid (whose brand is $100 million more valuable) or the rapidly growing English teams. Man City and Chelsea have both overtaken it for the first time, pushing Barca into 6th place in the Brand Finance Football 50.Thanks to sporting success and a squad stacked with legendary figures such as Messi and Neymar, Barcelona actually has the strongest brand of any club, rated AAA+ by Brand Finance. However ‘brand strength’ only reflects the notional potential of the brand. For a club’s brand to generate income a business team that is as star-studded and tactically brilliant as the team on the pitch is required. That is how to build brand value.

Opening of first Football for Khayelitsha

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 6 dicembre 2009

Cape Town The first Football for Hope Centre in Khayelitsha in the outskirts of Cape Town opened its doors today (5 December 2009). FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter was joined by Western Cape Premier Helen Zille, 2010 FIFA World Cup Organising Committee South Africa (OC) CEO Danny Jordaan, South African Football Association President Kirsten Nematandani and Executive Mayor of the City of Cape Town Dan Plato at the celebration of the latest milestone of 20 Centres for 2010, the Official Campaign of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™. Among the special guests were Football for Hope ambassador Dr. Gabriele Princess Inaara the Begum Aga Khan and former Bafana  captain Lucas Radebe. The centre, which is the first of 20 community centres, will help to tackle HIV/AIDS and some of the biggest issues facing young people across the African continent. “With the opening of this Football for Hope Centre, we can now see the real legacy that the 2010 FIFA World Cup will leave in Africa,” said the FIFA President. “This centre will use people’s passion for football to transform communities and to provide hope and opportunities for young people. Many years from now people will still be benefiting from this and the other 20 Centres for 2010.” The next five centres will be built by FIFA and its strategic ally streetfootballworld in disadvantaged communities in Kenya, Namibia, Mali, Rwanda and Ghana and will address crucial issues like health, education, gender equality, peace-building and the environment as well as HIV and AIDS – considered to be one of the greatest challenges faced by young people in Africa.The centre in Khayelitsha has been built in an area once notorious for crime and violence as part of an initiative to breathe new life into the community. It provides rooms for public health services and informal education, office space, common space for community gatherings and a football turf pitch. Each of the 20 centres will be run by an existing community organisation. The Football for Hope Centre in Khayelitsha will be managed by Grassroot Soccer, a South African-based non-profit organisation that uses football to educate young people about HIV and AIDS and empower them with the knowledge to live HIV-free. “This was more like a crime spot, but now it is more like an activity spot where people come to enjoy themselves,” said Zamayedwa Sogayise, chairperson of the Khayelitsha Development Forum.

Obama joined NCAA champion University of Florida Gators

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 24 aprile 2009

The team presented Obama with a Jersey numbered “1” and with “Obama” on it. Also gave him a football that had “Barack Obama” printed on it along with what looked to be the score of the national championship game and, according to Reggie Love, who was holding it, the phrase “National Champions.” After getting the jersey, Obama gave it to Reggie. Then, in a move fraught with peril, the president threw the football underhanded to Love. It sailed just above the East Room Grid Iron for a two yard completion to Love who, gripping the Jersey in one hand, one-handed the catch with the other.  But the reception was good only for a quip from the president, who noted that Reggie had played football at Duke and asked him if he’d ever gone up against Florida. Reggie said he hadn’t. As Obama told him, “Yeah, you’re lucky,” Reggie said that Duke “probably would have beaten them.” There appeared to be some skepticism in the crowd. A brave thing, though, considering he was standing across the room from dozens of well-fed looking Gators. Though Reggie does presumably have some degree of Secret Service protection too.
