Ashton Gate add new food and beverage matchday concessions

first_imgThe external matchday Fan Village will be in operation from 3pm and the enhanced offerings sees a new addition of Spanish cuisine from Los Hermanos, as well as a new bar, Boots and Balls – fitted with a state-of-the-art speed pour system with drinks concessions offering a fully cashless option. We have kept fan favourites Fish & Chips and the Burger food outlet as well as the live bands on stage. Inside the Ashton Gate Stadium concourses, from when the turnstiles open at 6pm, local business The Jolly Hog has opened a concession, a new Mexican kiosk has also opened whilst Chicago Town Pizza slices are being served throughout the Lansdown concourse. All pints are down to £4 between 6.15pm-6.45pm with season card holders getting a further discount of £3.60.In the Dolman concourse we see the return of the Ashton Gate Curry Bar, which offers supporters the finest quality curries, with fresh ingredients offering a new curry each matchday packed full of flavour and served with rice, while vegetarian and vegan options are also available. Working with Holy Cow curry sauces who have won numerous awards from ‘The Great Taste Awards’ in 2006, The Grocer Magazine’s ‘Best New Product Award’ in 2014 and 2015 and The Caterer’s ‘Product Excellence Award’ in December 2016, and some more Great Taste Awards in 2017, we are sure these will be a match winner with our supporters.We also celebrate the return of the ‘pie of the month’ – with a new pie added each month from our local hand-made pies and pasties company Chunk – as well as vegan pies.Our Coffee Shop, with locally sourced fresh food and drink, is open at 9am for you to grab a slice of cake and hot drink ahead of the big game.last_img read more

Pukpuks 7s coach pleased with level of preparation

first_imgRugby Union BY SIMON KESLEP Pukpuks 7s Coach Frank Gabi Jr was pleased with the level of game time and preparation despite the team finishing sixth at the recent Oceania 7s tournament in Fiji. Upon arrival on Sunday at the Jackson’s International Airport, Coach Gabi Jr said given their three weeks of lead-up preparation prior to the tournament the players displayed a beyond the expectation game performance. “Given our three-week preparation, the performance was beyond our (coaching staff) expectations. We did not expect much from them (players) but they performed beyond our expectations and they did really well,” said Coach Gabi Jnr. “The last three games we played with only nine players to finish off those games. It was a tough ask but they did really well and got the job done for us.” The coach said there is a new process now where qualification at the Oceania 7s will no longer see teams heading into Sydney and Hamilton 7s but attend Challenges Series in Chile and Uruguay. “If we finish in the top 8 then we qualify for Hong Kong. So we’ve already qualified for Chile and Uruguay in February next year.” He said they will go back into the normal process of scouting for talents from a wider group and select a train-on squad of about 26. This train-on squad will then train until end of January before travelling in the second week of February next year. Coach Gabi Jr was also pleased with the support by Sanitarium (sponsorship in cash and kind) and also paying for the team’s jersey and travel including support from Mintt as well.last_img read more

El-Kanemi Warriors’ New Boy Ohanu Targets NPFL Safety

first_imgNew El-kanemi Warriors signing, Michael Ohanu, has revealed his desire to help the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) outfit escape relegation at the end of the season.El-kanemi Warriors are in a battle to avoid the drop with the Maiduguri-based outfit currently four places and one point above the relegation zone.Michael Ohanu scored a record 21 goals for Kwara United in the Nigeria National League (NNL) last season to help the Afonja Warriors secure NPFL promotion but has struggled for form since the start of the season.He joined El-kanemi Warriors during the mid-season and is ready to play his part to help his new club retain their top flight status having already scored three goals.Ohanu made this known in a chat with the league’s website.In his words, he said: “Since I joined the club in mid-season, the coaches, my teammates and fans have been really warm to me. It has helped me settled down well in Maiduguri and I can say I have struck a fairly decent bond with the team.”“Unfortunately I joined them at a time they are struggling but as a professional football player all I want to do is give my best and make sure that the club remains in the top league. I know they have been in the top league for six years now and staying in it for the seventh year and more won’t be a bad idea.” He added.Speaking further, Ohanu said: “I feel better and even more confident now having scored three times for my club. It wasn’t that my previous team was not good, but I think we were unfortunate not to win games and even score more goals because we played well in most of our games ”“But to be able to score goals with El-Kanemi is good for me as a striker and I hope I can get more when the league resumes after the World Cup.” He concluded.On his goals’ target, his response was that: “I will prefer to take each game as they come and remain optimistic.”Micheal Ohanu and his El-kanemi Warriors teammates will continue their survival bid when they travel to take on Kano Pillars at the Sani Abacha Stadium upon the league resumption on July 18.Relatedlast_img read more

Bird & Bird launches legal support service for ESIC

first_imgInternational law firm Bird & Bird has announced an initiative that will offer complimentary legal support service for those in the Esports Integrity Coalition (ESIC).Those who are part of the not-for-profit association will be entitled to three hours of legal advice on three separate legal queries each year.Photo credit: ESIC, Bird & BirdRichard Bush and William Deller of the Media, Entertainment and Sports Sector at Bird & Bird commented in a statement: “Esports is an area of huge growth and innovation, which presents various novel commercial and regulatory challenges. Our partnership with ESIC will not only help its members navigate these challenges, but also provide them with legal support aimed at furthering the development of their businesses and protecting esports from various integrity risks.”The advice that Bird & Bird is able to offer ESIC members includes franchise, team and player agreements, staging, hosting and venue hire agreements, ticketing, merchandising and hospitality agreements, media rights agreements, and commercial contracts. It can also provide support for regulatory matters such as the prevention of doping & corruption and how to respond to suspicions of such matters.Ian Smith, Commissioner of ESIC added: “Bird & Bird are experts in providing legal advice in esports, and in the broader sport, media and technology sectors, making them the ideal partner for this initiative. The firm’s complimentary legal support service fits perfectly with ESIC’s wider strategy: to add value for its members, to support their development and, of course, protect esports integrity. I look forward to working with the team.”ESIC counts the likes of ESL, DreamHack, Intel, ESP Gaming, Gambling Commission, and Malta Gaming Authority as members of the association. Esports Insider is its key media partner.Bird & Bird forged a partnership with Danish esports organisation Copenhagen Flames back in March 2017, establishing a legal hotline and a free audit service for both player and sponsor contracts.Esports Insider says: ESIC is truly trying to make esports a better place for all involved, so having a law firm at hand that is able to help members of the association with a number of different problems is only a good thing. Bird & Bird is obviously keen to offer it services to those in the industry and long may it continue.Follow ESI on Instagramlast_img read more

Lionsgate launching ‘A Night at the Movies,’ hosted by Jamie Lee Curtis, on YouTube

first_imgABC Image Group(LOS ANGELES) — For those of us locked inside, Lionsgate is launching A Night at the Movies, a series of free films hosted by Jamie Lee Curtis and featuring celebrity guests, all streaming live on YouTube.With theaters nationwide closed, Lionsgate is seeking to “honor the communal experience of watching movies in movie theaters and support the people who make those places great” by screening four movies, Fridays at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time.The festivities kick off on April 17 with The Hunger Games, followed by Dirty Dancing on April 24, La La Land on May 1, and John Wick on May 8. Each screening will also feature “real-time fan chats via YouTube Live, live tweeting @Lionsgate and partners, and shared fan engagement opportunities in-show, including movie trivia, movie-themed challenges, and more.”What’s more, Lionsgate will donate to the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping workers throughout the motion picture industry, which is currently providing financial assistance to theater employees furloughed by the COVID-19 crisis.  Fans will also have the chance to donate during the screening events.Joe Drake, chairman of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, said in a statement, “There’s nothing that will replace the magic of seeing a movie together with your fellow moviegoers in a theater on a big screen, but this is a chance for America to come together to recreate the experience. This is a great chance to show the country’s theatrical employees how much we miss going to their theaters and how much we support them.”The studio is also partnering with Popcornopolis and Snacknation, two companies that can send movie snacks right to your home, and which will also donate a portion of their proceeds to the fund.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

In the AFC, the wild-card race is changing week by week, and it is getting more interesting. A week ago, the team in the last wild-card spot was Indianapolis. Right now the Colts are neck-and-neck with Baltimore. Denver follows close behind after two commanding victories. Miami and Tennessee still have a chance, but not very good ones.AccuScore has used data from the first 12 weeks of the 2018 season and simulated every remaining game.
