Liverpool could follow Man City in ‘multi billion’ stadium decision

Manchester City are seeking to be the first football club to truly embrace the power of the metaverse by constructing the world’s first virtual football stadium.

In a bid to engage with fans around the world and better monetise that relationship with a global audience, City are working with virtual reality experts at Sony to create a virtual Etihad in the metaverse that would allow fans to watch games through virtual reality, according to inews.

The report claims City have inked a three-year deal with Sony to develop the software with the goal being to fill the Etihad virtually and create another potentially lucrative revenue stream into the club, who became the first Premier League club to outstrip Manchester United for revenues when they posted their 2020/21 financial results last month that saw them generate £569.8m in revenues despite the impact of the pandemic and a season of fans being unable to attend games.

It is the latest move from City to add to their commercial portfolio and create new avenues to bring money into the club in a bid to try and create greater distance between themselves and the rest when it comes to financial power, leveraging their position as English football’s team to beat.

Finding ways to better monetise global fan bases is something that clubs have toiled with for some time.

WSL: Chelsea thrash Man City; Everton hold Manchester United | Football News

Chelsea thrashed Man City 4-0 at the City Football Academy to move within a point of Arsenal at the top of the Women’s Super League.

Jessie Fleming gave Chelsea a dream start when taking advantage of a mix-up at the back between back-up City goalkeeper Karima Taieb and Georgia Stanway to fire her side ahead after just two minutes.

Despite the home team’s pressure, Chelsea then hit their rivals on the break in first-half stoppage time as Stanway lost possession on halfway, allowing So-Yun Ji to break up field, before picking out the unmarked Guro Reiten at the far post.

And from her clever headed knockdown, there was Sam Kerr to acrobatically hook in her sixth WSL goal of the season, with the champions then adding a third seven minutes after half-time.

The hosts failed to clear a corner, although there appeared little danger when Fran Kirby picked up the ball on the right side of the box, only for the England international forward to somehow find the far corner with a delightful curler.

Three nil then became four minutes later as Magdalena Eriksson rose highest to head home a left-wing corner, with more questions over City ‘keeper Taieb as Chelsea comfortably saw out the rest of the match to record their first-ever win at the City Football Academy, a ground which has now seen City lose their last three games at as they drop to ninth in the table.

Relive how Red Bull’s Max Verstappen took the lead of the Mexico City GP, with Valtteri Bottas sent spinning back from pole

Max Verstappen secured a dominant win in the Mexico City GP to take a potentially significant step in his quest to end Lewis Hamilton’s reign as world champion, opening his title lead to 19 points with four races left.

Hamilton just held off Mexico’s own Sergio Perez, Verstappen’s team-mate, for second place against a clearly-faster race car but first and third still represented a big comeback result for Red Bull after they were surprisingly outqualified by Mercedes.

Verstappen made light work of the Valtteri Bottas-Hamilton front row by impressively slipstreaming past both on an outside line at the start, decisively claiming a lead he never relinquished outside of the pit stops.

He won by 16.5s for a record third victory in Mexico and a ninth of a 2021 season where the momentum increasingly looks to be with the 24-year-old Dutchman in his engrossing fight with Hamilton for the drivers’ crown.

“You just have to congratulate Red Bull because their pace was on another level,” said Mercedes boss Toto Wolff to Sky F1. “In the end for Lewis’ championship, it was damage limitation.”

Hamilton said: “Congratulations to Max, their car is far superior this weekend and there was nothing we could really do about it.”
