AgiproNews Italian View – Who can save la ippica?

first_img Related Articles StumbleUpon Submit Share Share TVBET passes GLI test for five live games in Malta and Italy August 25, 2020 Italian business waits for parliament to publish its ‘Revival Decree’ outlining the terms and conditions attached to sector-specific rescue packages sanctioned by the government.Having handled the epicentre of Europe’s coronavirus outbreak, Italy enters ‘phase two’ of its lockdown procedure allowing bars, restaurants and further commercial properties to reopen obeying social distancing orders.Meanwhile, in Rome, the Chamber of Deputies has turned its full attention to salvaging Italy’s domestic enterprise devasted by the wretched virus.From Lombardy to Sicily, regional MPs have urged PM Giuseppe Conte’s government to intervene saving vital industries, demanding emergency funds for tourism, manufacturing, agriculture, textiles, clothing, automotive and football of course.However, amid the chamber’s clamour will any MP be brave enough to stand-up for la Ippca (horseracing) – Italy’s grandest sport. Tracing its heritage to the Roman Empire, horseracing is synonymous with Italy, in which equine races have been recorded since 1773.Following years of mismanagement, Italian racing has seen its fixtures decline in international standing, its stadia deteriorate with the sport falling out of the public domain.Mirroring its counterparts, the leadership of Italian racing has called for economic support yet its balance sheets reveal the blunt judgement of whether a sport in a constant coma should be salvaged.Since 2008 Italian racing has recorded year-on-year revenue declines seeing its GGY handle drop from €2.2 billion to €500 million in 2019. Furthermore, Italian racing cannot follow UK and France precedents, in demanding direct bookmaker funding having garnered a meagre €125 million revenues from its 2019 fixtures.This May, the Conte government will allow Italian racing to restart its 2020 schedule under closed confinements.“A minimum number of people inside the racetracks, minimum distances to be respected, sanitization of all the areas: these are the measures we will take”, Agricultural undersecretary  Giuseppe L’Abbate told AgiproNews.Yet stable owners’ question whether a restart is even a viable option, as racetrack betting points will be closed, and betting networks are limited in capacity.Massimo Passamonti, founder of Sistema Gioco Italia, the association for retail betting incumbents stated that a restart could be achieved on the provision that “two or three  races be scheduled in times that can meet the habits of online bettors, as the network of horse betting shops are still closed because of the lockdown”.Passamonti urges stakeholders to broaden their thinking beyond lockdown complexities, as Italian racing stares at a bleak future.Gioco Italia’s leader believes that la Ippca is in urgent need of a ‘ground-up reform’, urging leadership to radically reform racing’s schedule forming ‘Serie A racetracks’ focusing on developing a small number of high-quality meetings.“It is clear that this classification passes through the privatization of the new horseracing management, even if still participated and controlled by the public authorities. Finally, a tax reduction is needed to make the bets on horseraces more competitive with all the other games” Passamonti adds.______________Content provided by AgiproNews Italia CT Gaming bolsters Italian profile with The Betting Coach  August 27, 2020 Italian bookmakers face cruel summer as ADM sanctions shop closures July 27, 2020last_img read more

Real Madrid unveil Hazard at Santiago Bernabéu after move from Chelsea [Photos]

first_imgReal Madrid have unveiled star signing Eden Hazard at the Santiago Bernabéu following his big-money move from Chelsea.The player told reporters that he had ‘fulfilled his dream’ as he appeared before a packed stadium in Madrid’s famous white jersey.Hazard completed the obligatory keepy-up session with very little fuss after which he did a lap of the huge stadium, kicking ceremonial footballs into the crowd as he went.He then stopped for a couple of selfies, initially with him pointing at the Real Madrid badge before obliging the fans’ request of kissing the badge.“My aim is to enjoy myself out there an win matches of course because at Real Madrid we have to win as many titles as possible. Hopefully I can write a new page at Real Madrid,” Hazard said.“To be honest, I was focused with Chelsea last season but I know Real Madrid’s last season was full of highs and lows but that’s normal everywhere. The hunger to win titles now is greater, I hope I can help.”“A player can always improve, there’s no peak, there’s always room for improvement. I am sure, thanks to training and playing well, we will all improve. I can improve and being here can make me be a better player.”This season could be a defining one for Real after a disappointing campaign last time out, with many people sensing another era of the ‘Galacticos’.However, Hazard is staying grounded, stating that although he hopes to be considered one someday, he doesn’t see himself as a Galactico just yet.“Galactico? No, I’m not. maybe one day I’d like to be considered a Galactico but now I am Eden Hazard. It’s a new chapter and I need to start freshly but I think I am a very good player but not yet a galactic.”The player signed a five-year deal with Real in a deal that is reported to be in excess of £88m.The deal could reach or exceed £130m with the agreement of “significant” add ons.Belgium captain, Hazard had one year left on his current deal with the Stamford Bridge club and had consistently expressed his desire to move to the Spanish capital.Real Madrid had also been a long-time admirer of the forward, with manager Zinedine Zidane, expressing his appreciation for the player on numerous occasions. Hazard scored 21 goals and created 17 more as Chelsea finished third in the league and reached the finals of the Carabao Cup and the Europa League, winning the latter.Following the Europa League final in which he scored twice and created one more as Chelsea beat Arsenal 4-1 in the Europa League final, the player said it was his wish to leave Stamford Bridge.“I think it is goodbye, but in football you never know,” the 28-year-old said after the final whistle in Baku. Madrid approached Chelsea over the possibility of a transfer last summer but the Blues were unwilling to lose their star player.They managed to however sign Hazard’s then-teammate at both club and international level, goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.last_img read more
