Football’s sponsors worry that they are paying for nothing

The value of being seen to remain loyal is reflected in the attitude of the Iberdrola Group, the main sponsor of the Spanish women’s first division.

You don’t pull out at times like these,” a spokesman for the Spanish electricity supply group told AFP. Even so, players in the sector estimate a 60 to 70 percent drop in investment and the prospect of several lean years. “There is of course a risk that some companies that wanted to invest will no longer do so, but will do so later,” said Bruno Bianzina, director of the Sport Market agency, a French company. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 French hotel group Accor, PSG’s main sponsor, left open the question of whether it would pay the full amount provided for in its contract (about 50 million euros, $54.7 million, a year), before saying two days later that it had honoured its commitments. “When you’re a sponsor, you want visibility,” Accor CEO Sebastien Bazin told French radio. “But at the same time, it’s in bad times that you recognise your friends and those who are there for you.” Sponsors can say overnight “we’re stopping everything because we’re in an emergency situation where we have to eliminate all the superfluous expenditure”, sports economist Jean-Pascal Gayant told AFP. “In the event of a crisis, the first budget item they cut is often the communications.” With stadiums dark, match shirts folded in closets and most players confined at home, football’s sponsors have lost all visibility and are growing restless.European clubs are struggling to offer their ‘partners’ a return on their investments as sport grapples with the coronavirus pandemic.Barcelona make 354.6m euros from sponsorship, according to Deloitte, more than any other club “We’re trying to do activities with our players for our sponsors, who are even more demanding since the lockdown. But it’s very complicated because of the health crisis,” one club marketing manager told AFP. The stars, the surest way for sponsors to attract an audience, are at home, many back in their native countries. Worse, there are no games for them to play. Matches on TV display the brands on the team jerseys or around the pitch to millions of viewers. At West Ham, one of the sponsors, high-risk finance company Basset & Gold, which the club stresses is not connected with owner David Gold, has just gone bankrupt, blaming the coronavirus crisis. Many sponsors are in sectors hit especially hard, such as airlines and hotel and restaurant chains. Some sponsors are beginning to cancel payments. – ‘Everything has to be suspended’ – Bordeaux’s main sponsor Bistro Regent has cancelled its April payment“It’s quite obvious that having no more events, everything has to be suspended, it seems so logical to me. It’s a case of force majeure,” Marc Vanhove, the boss of the Bistro Regent restaurant chain, which sponsors the Bordeaux shirt, told AFP.The Bordeaux-based chain suspended its contract, which runs until 2023, he said, “until we have the dates for the resumption”. With matches cancelled and some broadcasters, notably in France, beginning to withhold payments, club finances are already strained. “Sponsorship is particularly important for Europe’s biggest clubs,” said Deloitte, the accountancy and services firm, in the 2020 edition of its ‘Football Money League’ which ranks clubs by income. It said the primary source of revenue for its top five clubs (Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and PSG) is commercial and averages 49 percent of total revenue — although that number is inflated by PSG, which reports 57 percent of revenue from sponsorship. West Ham will have to remove the name of bankrupt sponsor Basset & Gold from their sleevesLower down the Deloitte table, the proportions change.For the clubs placed 16 to 20 (Roma, Lyon, West Ham, Everton and Napoli), 65 percent of revenue comes from broadcasting.last_img read more

Batesville doctor earns state award

first_imgIn addition to the patients she serves in her office and at Margaret Mary Health, Dr. Robertson serves as the director of nursing for the Sisters of St. Francis where she regularly provides care to sisters who are too ill to travel. “As a testament to her ability to relate to her patients, Dr. Robertson is the most requested physician for the sisters when they are in need of care,” said Diana Schutte, director of nursing for the Sisters of St. Francis. “She’s just wonderful. She looks at the individuality of each patient and addresses them in a way they can understand, especially when caring for patients with dementia.” Batesville, In. — Dr. Mary Robertson recently received the Indiana Doc Hollywood Award at the 2017 Indiana Rural Health Association’s annual conference. This award recognizes individuals who care professionally for those in rural areas across the nation. An internal medicine physician in Batesville, Dr. Robertson was one of four physicians in the state of Indiana who received the honor.Dr. Robertson’s nomination was a compilation of both professional and patient testimonials that showcased her reputation for being a genuinely caring physician. Not only was she recognized for providing excellent care to her patients, but the award was also given for her role in mentoring students and volunteering in the community.Dr. Robertson moved from Chicago to Batesville in 2000 to open her medical practice. Since that time, she has provided compassionate care to a number of patients not only in her office, but at Margaret Mary Health. When asked to describe Dr. Robertson, many of her patients are quick to point out how meticulous she is when making a diagnosis or determining a treatment plan. “Mary leaves no stone unturned – continually delving into medical issues until she is totally convinced the course she is recommending is concise and thorough,” said Judy Laudick, a patient since 2000.center_img Despite the time and dedication it takes to be a mentor to students, Dr. Robertson has welcomed them into her practice so they can work alongside her to better understand what it takes to be a healthcare provider in a rural community.“Mary is a large part of the reason I am a practicing dentist today, emulating what she has done for so many years,” said Amy Feller-Morrin. “On many occasions, I watched Mary balance the life of a full-time professional working mother in a small community. Mary has always been a role model to me.”Anyone who knows Dr. Robertson knows she not only cares about her patients, but she cares about the entire community. Not only does Dr. Robertson support many sporting events and fundraisers in the community, she has volunteered her time on many occasions to speak at community seminars on topics ranging from cancer and heart disease to diabetes and women’s health. She has also assisted with sports physicals for student athletes.An advocate for those who are underinsured, Dr. Robertson devotes countless hours to helping patients get the treatment and medications they need, regardless of their ability to pay. She also volunteers regularly at the Southeast Indiana Health Center (SEIHC), a local clinic that provides medical care to those who can’t afford it.“Since opening our doors in 2013, Dr. Robertson has been a true supporter of the Southeast Indiana Health Center,” said Paul Tyrer, SEIHC manager. “From personally transporting a patient to the emergency room to seeing patients outside of clinic hours, Dr. Robertson’s care and compassion goes beyond caring for the sick.”Perhaps most impressive of all of Dr. Robertson’s feats is her ability to run a successful medical practice while raising a family of her own. Dr. Robertson and her husband, Mike, have three children and seven grandchildren. She is a very active grandma, and her grandkids affectionately call her “Lola.” With six siblings of her own, she also values being involved with her very large, extended family.last_img read more
