This year they had all their vendors at the locations supporting the competition with the numbers at each stadium increasing for each game and that was not all. “From a brand and sales perspective, we are happy with the opportunities the games presented as great locations for the games a controlled environment where we are given the chance for sales of the products, and great interactions with the consumer,” he said. “In regards to cost and prizes for the schools which make it to the round, winning $25,000 for each game does well for the school, not to mention the ultimate winner of the event. Last but not least, for our partners Flow and us, it offered great TV since the games are being broadcast on both Flow TV as well as CVM.”Watson said they were keen on being part of the competition for the foreseeable future. “We look forward to continued participation in the event for 2016,” he said.last_img read more

QPR fans on Twitter react to latest defeat

first_img Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook Embed from Getty ImagesQPR fans on Twitter have been reacting to another away defeat – and many are increasingly unhappy with Ian Holloway.Rangers are yet to win away this season and the 2-0 reverse at Derby was their third loss in a row.Manager Holloway, who presided over two six-game losing runs after taking over last season, stood by his tactics for the Derby game.But many supporters feel he has been getting it wrong – and some believe another change of manager is needed.How can you stand by your tactics when youve not won away from home since February— Mark (@duddaz87) November 22, 2017Please don’t defend your game plan Ollie.It was negative and showed no effort to win a football match against mediocre opposition.— Greg Sangwine (@GSangwine) November 22, 2017The problem with Ollie is that he shifts from the sublime to the ridiculous & the lack of consistency is killing us. We’re heading into trouble if we’re not careful #QPR— D J (@ThaGreat1) November 21, 2017Our away form:LDLLLLLDLLLDDDLL16 games without a win. Last won on the 18th February.But hey ho, the improvement has been ten-fold, squad are a bunch of triers and it’s waaaaaaay more entertaining under ‘Ollie’. #QPR— King of Zamunda (@HRHJaffeJoffer) November 21, 2017Let’s start by saying I’m not in the Ollie out camp but he does seem to have run out of ideas #QPR— Dedders (@lexdrouy) November 21, 2017Surely some serious questions about Ollie now – his squad use is abysmal. What’s the point in borysiuk or Goss for example? Multiple wingers? Les must be scratching his head why some are never used & if not, get rid. Truely baffling #QPR— Brad woodbridge (@bwoodbridge33) November 22, 2017Not sure what Ollie is up to doesn’t help himself with team selection play a striker, yes there not very good but show some intent to win a game away from home please.. digging his own grave at the moment #QPR— Russell Maynard (@MrRussellmyn) November 21, 2017Ian Holloway has lost 26 of his 51 games in charge of #qpr, he’s won 16 and drawn 9 and without an away win in the last 16.Simply not good enough.— Prime Joseph Kony (@JosephAKAShifty) November 21, 2017I don’t care if people are annoyed at this but I want Holloway out tbh the team selection and subs he made today made no sense and it finally proves to me his tactics are not working and there is no plan b, c, d etc.. #QPR— Bradley (@BradleyRblock97) November 22, 2017I really wanted Holloway to work out but enough is enough. How much longer do we keep plodding this path Tony? @tonyfernandes @QPRFC #qpr— Brian Collins (@BJC68) November 22, 2017last_img read more
