NATIONAL SPORTS FESTIVALThe Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, on Monday in Benin City commended the Government of Edo State for its preparedness to host the 20th edition of the National Sports Festival billed for 2020.The Sports Minister who paid an unscheduled visit to the state to assess the level of work going on at facilities earmarked for the Games now being referred to as “Benin 2020”, was full of plaudits for the state. Some of the sports facilities visited by the minister include; the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin Technical College sports ground as well as the University of Benin Sports Complex.“I must confess that from what I have seen on ground, the Edo State Government is more prepared for the hosting of the National Sports Festival than I had imagined.“Of course, there is still the need for some touches here and there but that is where the Federal Government comes in because the National Sports Festival is a Federal Government event. Even the University of Benin from the facilities I see on ground, can successfully host the games and I seize the opportunity to commend the founding fathers of the institution for this great initiative.“I am totally happy with all the locations visited here in Benin-City”, the minister declared.Asked to comment on the renovation work done so far on the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Dalung said he was more than satisfied.“The contractor has already assured me that the stadium will be ready by April. The stadium from what I have seen is capable of becoming the best in the country but I have already advised the Edo State Government not to compromise quality. The stadium is going to become not only a state monument but also a national monument hence the need to emphasize the use of quality materials and products”, the minister stated.Responding on behalf of the Edo State Government, the Chairman of the Edo State Sports Commission, Godwin Dudu-Orumen, re-iterated the readiness of the state to host the best National Sports fFestival. He said the state will leave no stone unturned to achieve this.“The Governor Godwin Obaseki led administration is already re-constructing the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium to international standard and we are building 20 mini stadia in the 18 local governments areas of the state. “We not only want to host the games, we want it to be the best ever since the inception of the games and you can be rest assured that we are going to put every machinery in place to achieve that,” stressed the Edo Sports Commission boss.Edo State was awarded the hosting rights for the 20th National Sports Festival at the close of the 19th edition which was held in Abuja last December.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Jette Nygaard-AndersenMillennials are the “main disruptive factor” for the TV industry, are increasingly saying “no” to linear TV, and their viewing habits are not changing as they get older, according to Jette Nygaard-Andersen, EVP and CEO, central European operations, Modern Times Group (MTG).“[Millennials’] consumption pattern and way of watching video is not changing as they grow up,” said Nygaard-Andersen at the Connected TV Summit in London this morning, adding that this was the most significant demographic group by far in terms of the audience TV companies had to address. “This is the largest generation ever in the US,” she said.While millennials are watching video, 86% do other things while watching TV, she said.Millennials are turning to self-created YouTube stars and e-sports rather than traditional TV or movie stars for inspiration, said Nygaard-Andersen. E-Sports has a growing following, with a recent event in Katowice, Poland, generating 20 million online views, she said.MTG had invested in two big e-sports companies last year. Gaming is now second only to music videos in terms of web viewing.MTG like other media companies, has invested in MCNs over the last few years. Specifically, said Nygaard-Andersen, the company has invested in Zoomin.TV, a global MCN, Splay Networks, which strong in the Nordic markets, and Talents, a Bulgarian MCN with a strong local following.Nygaard-Andersen said that online is growing significantly in central and eastern Europe, and that MTG has invested in digital video and integrated vertical platforms in this region. “The first thing is building local MCNs,” she said. Premiering Big Brother in Bulgaria generated one million linear viewers but many times that number on digital platforms, she said.Nygaard-Andersen said that it made sense to invest in a range of MCNs spanning global and local audiences.She said that MCNs are currently about finding a distinct voice with a brand and focus. It makes sense, she said, to use individual performers’ identities as brands rather than to focus on the brand of the MCN itself.MTG is now accelerating its investment in digital platforms, following its launch of SVoD platform Viaplay in 2011, she said.Nygaard-Andersen said that growing consumption of video on mobile is one key trend, adding that it will be crucial to have ad monetisation models that work on mobile.Social viewing is closely allied to mobile video growth, she said. People are sharing video and views on programmes, but are also increasingly viewing content on social platforms, she said. Nygaard-Andersen said that advertising technology – including the likes of programmatic – was becoming increasingly important, with a growing emphasis on accurate measurement of how content is viewed on different platforms.
