Red Bull to end sponsorships with TSM and C9 due to Riot restrictions, reports…

first_imgAccording to reports from ESPN, Red Bull Media House is in the process of ending sponsorships with Cloud9 and Team SoloMid as they address what reports suggest Riot believe could be a potential conflict of interest. Due to certain formalities not yet being locked, Red Bulls of the EU Challenger Series will be referred to as Team RB until further notice.— lolesports (@lolesports) June 18, 2017It comes as Riot tweeted that the team would not be called Red Bulls until further notice (pictured above). As the company now has its own team, ESPN reports that a conflict arises with Riot Games’ strict sale of sponsorship rules. Red Bull are no stranger to falling foul of ownership rules and potential conflicts of interest — it’s been recently announced that R.B. Leipzig will be allowed to compete in the Champions League as well as R.B. Salzburg, after much debate over potential conflict of interest.Red Bull run a dedicated esports content portal and is known well in the Dota scene for its extensive coverage of four-time Major champions OG. Elsewhere, they have an array of Red Bull “athletes” across multiple esports, although there’s no easy way to find an up-to-date list. The likes of August “Agge” Rosenmeier, PSG eSports FIFA player is but one example.A particularly notable element of ESPN’s report was that TSM Smash players William “Leffen” Hjelte and Gonzalo “ZeRo” Barrios will have to have visa changes made. Reports state that they were employed by Red Bull and had their accommodation booked by that company — due to FGC players being ineligible for P-1A visas. An ESPN source suggests that the status will be resolved “without any hiccups”. Esports Insider says: Riot remain strict on pretty much everything. Meanwhile, in the wonderful world of Valve there’s multi-team ownership all over the place and probably more conflicts of interest than you can shake a stick at. There has been precedent set by Riot so this is hardly surprising.last_img read more

STAR PREVIEW Liverpool v Tottenham

first_img[dropcap]C[/dropcap]helsea’s heroics this season have already given the Premier League an end of season feeling and it’s only early February.Things could’ve been much different if Liverpool’s form hadn’t gone AWOL in 2017 and even three points at home on Saturday would not leave them in front of their Anfield rivals Tottenham.Conversely, a win for Spurs would close the gap on Chelsea to six points ahead of The Blues visit to Burnley on Sunday.Liverpool’s collapse in form is pretty puzzling to work out. They had four straight League wins at the end of 2016 yet in 2017 have yet to win a single League game and their ONLY success has been an unconvincing 1-0 win at Plymouth in the FA Cup.Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said: “I cannot speak for another coach but all the managers, and [Jurgen] Klopp with his experience, he is clever like other managers to provide good balance.“If you win you are a genius, if you don’t win you are criticised. You need to be natural, spontaneous and believe in the way you play, use your methods.“It’s an easy answer: only work in the way you believe you can achieve big things.”Liverpool v Tottenham HotspurPremier League17:30 BT Sport 1 / BT Sport 1 HD / BT Sport 4K UHDHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Oct 2016 EFL CUP Liverpool 2-1 TottenhamAug 2016 PREMIER Tottenham 1-1 LiverpoolApr 2016 PREMIER Liverpool 1-1 TottenhamOct 2015 PREMIER Tottenham 0-0 LiverpoolFeb 2015 PREMIER Liverpool 3-2 TottenhamAug 2014 PREMIER Tottenham 0-3 LiverpoolMar 2014 PREMIER Liverpool 4-0 TottenhamDec 2013 PREMIER Tottenham 0-5 LiverpoolMar 2013 PREMIER Liverpool 3-2 TottenhamNov 2012 PREMIER Tottenham 2-1 LiverpoolLiverpool are unbeaten in their last nine league and cup matches against Tottenham, winning six of them but the dynamics today make Spurs a bet for me at around 12/5 with Star Sports.Any other result – let’s just close down the Premier League for this season and hand over the Trophy to Chelsea.
