Welcome to this special AAC/iGB Live! report into World Cup PPC strategies Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 11th July 2018 | By Stephen Carter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Marketing & affiliates Email Address Tags: Online Gambling iGB-Blueclaw World Cup PPC report Topics: Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Welcome to this special iGaming Business-Blueclaw research into World Cup PPC strategies released to coincide with the Amsterdam Affiliate Conference. With PPC costs lower for sportsbook-led brands with a track record of producing strong football content and organic rankings for football-related terms, this can be a highly effective channel for operators to capitalise on this large but fleeting opportunity. But as Blueclaw marketing director Martin Calvert points out, this needs to be balanced with the potential risk of overspend and being outwitted by competitors. FIFA has also trademarked a raft of terms, “FIFA”, “Russia 2018” and “World Cup” to less specific terms like “Moscow 2018” (see p4-5 for more on this) for its official brands so gaming brands are needing to be more creative to find ways of working around this. This World Cup is also several generations of smartphone ahead of the last iteration in 2014, with punters enjoying far greater connectivity, ease of access and more sophisticated platforms. The UK market has also consolidated considerably since then, meaning many of the big brands from 2014 are now part of one group and that challenger operators are having to pick their fights more carefully to maintain a sensible CPA. Blueclaw’s data from the opening days of this year’s tournament also reinforces the fact that public interest in betting on the tournament is closely tied to the fortunes of the national team. Their early exit in 2014 saw a sharp decline in search activity which only picked up for the final, so bookies are presumably thanking their lucky stars for England’s best run in a World Cup since 1990.

Roof open for Wales vs Ireland at the Principality Stadum. Storm Gareth up to its usual mischief, brutal weather in Cardiff – buckle up folks.— Tom Hamilton (@tomhamiltonespn) March 15, 2019According to weather forecasts, there is 100% chance of rain in Cardiff, and things could be a little worse than previous days. Roof is definitely going to be open, per Ireland’s request made *yesterday*. Wales currently going through captain’s run with it shut. Strong winds are also expected to hit.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The stadium in Cardiff will be open to the elements as Wales chase a Grand Slam Principality Stadium roof will be open for Wales v IrelandIn a small victory before the main event, Ireland have been successful in their bid to have the roof of the Principality Stadium open to the elements on Saturday. Heavy rain is forecast for the afternoon, as Wales chase their first Grand Slam in the Six Nations since 2012.The decision comes after Ireland coach Joe Schmidt had publicly suggested Wales had broken protocol by asking Six Nations bosses to allow the roof to be closed for the match that could decide who wins the Championship.Related: Six Nations title race explainedUnder Six Nations rules, both teams must agree to the roof being closed.Yesterday, Schmidt said: “There’s been a request from Wales that in the interest of the quality of the game and the very poor weather forecast that the roof be closed. So they’ve said to the Six Nations directly, ‘can it be closed?’”Wanting it open: Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt (Getty Images)On the eve of the contest though, Six Nations officials upheld a demand from Ireland, filed yesterday, for the roof to be open.There was more from Schmidt yesterday, as he also discussed other tactics used within the stadium when the roof is closed.“I think the last time it was closed, we arrived there and there was a lot said about making it good for spectators and the sprinklers were on for 30 minutes and the ground was very damp before the game started,” he said.“That probably enters into our mind – which ‘closed’ is it going to be? Closed and wet or closed and dry? If it is closed and wet, you might as well have the window open and let the rain come in.” The WRU built rugby’s greatest stadium 20 years ago. They had foresight to install retractable roof. It is unfathomable that visiting team decides if roof is to be shut.— Stephen Jones (@stephenjones9) March 14, 2019 LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Skies above: a general view of the Principality Stadium roof (Getty Images)

Organisation to go further Receive email alerts News June 4, 2021 Find out more News RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan May 21, 2021 Public media independence under threat in the Czech Republic and Slovenia June 8, 2021 Find out more Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says Janez Jansa, Slovene Prime Minister – Joe Klamar / AFP In a climate of considerable tension at state-owned Czech Television (ČT), the Czech chamber of deputies is preparing to renew four of the 15 members of the broadcaster’s supervisory board, the ČT Council, on 25 May. The tension had been fuelled by an attempt to remove ČT director-general Petr Dvořák, who was accused of a conflict of interests, leading him to file a defamation suit on 19 May. This serious accusation – which was baseless, an administrative investigation found – was made by ČT Council member Hana Lipovská during a meeting of the council at ČT headquarters, at which she arrived accompanied by police officers, claiming that the director-general had threatened her life. Elected to the council by the ruling coalition, Lipovská is pursuing the same goal as Czech President Miloš Zeman, who has repeatedly denigrated journalists and who called for Dvořák to be replaced last year, describing ČT as “part of the opposition.”Bojan Veselinović, the director-general of the state-owned Slovenian Press Agency (STA), has been subjected to similar smear attempts. Slovenia’s prime minister, Janez Janša, who often attacks journalists, accused him in early May of being an “accomplice to the murder” of a former STA chief editor. The former STA chief editor died of an illness in 2010, a few months after Veselinović fired him for professional misconduct. Veselinović says he was unaware of his former colleague’s poor health and recently announced that he was bringing criminal and civil lawsuits against the prime minister. Janša, who often expresses far-right views, is open about his objectives. He called for Veselinović’s removal in March, describing him as a “political tool of the far left” and referring to STA as a “national disgrace.”The public service media in Hungary and Poland – countries ranked as “problematic” by RSF’s World Press Freedom Index – are already controlled by their political leaders, but the battle to maintain public media independence continues in the Czech Republic and Slovenia – countries where the Index still classifies the situation as “fairly good.” “The independence of the Czech and Slovene public media is under threat, but the example of Czech Television, long seen as a benchmark of quality in the region, shows that central Europe’s public service media are not condemned to subjugation by political parties,” said Pavol Szalai, the head of RSF’s European Union and Balkans desk. “Czech and Slovene politicians must cease violating the limits on their authority by trying to fire the heads of public service media. We urge them to stop pressuring these media via their supervisory bodies and to stop manipulating the issue of their funding.”These calls are in line with the recommendations on public service media governance adopted in 2012 by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, of which the Czech Republic and Slovenia are members. These recommendations state that “appointments [in the highest supervisory or decision-making authority] cannot be used to exert political or other influence over the operation of the public service media” and that the method and level of funding “cannot be used to exert editorial influence or threaten institutional autonomy.” Politicians in both countries have clearly been violating these recommendations.In the Czech Republic, HlidaciPes.org website journalist Vojtěch Berger voiced his concerns in an interview for Czech radio interview. He said an alliance consisting of Prime Minister Andrej Babiš’s ANO party, the Czech Communist Party and the far-right SPD had, in recent years, elected candidates to the supervisory bodies who were more hostile to the public service media. Most of the ruling coalition-endorsed candidates for election to the ČT Council on 25 May take the same critical line on ČT as the coalition’s parties. In Slovenia, the ruling coalition unveiled a bill in February – without consulting the STA – that would transfer responsibility for appointing the members of the STA’s Supervisory Council from parliament to the government.The issue of public service media funding is also being exploited politically, in violation of the Council of Europe’s recommendations. In the Czech Republic, the far-right SPD, which is very critical of ČT, is proposing that the annual fee paid by citizens to cover the costs of public broadcasting should be replaced by a direct allocation from the state budget, making ČT dependent on the government. Slovenia’s politicians are not just threatening, they have taken action. The government suspended the STA’s funding on administrative grounds in February.Slovenia fell four places in RSF’s 2021 World Press Freedom Index and is now ranked 36th out of 180 countries. The Czech Republic is ranked 40th.
