Email Address MGM Resorts has ramped up its efforts to gain a foothold in the Japanese market after being confirmed as the title sponsor of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) season-opening fixtures in the country next month. Casino & games Topics: Casino & games Regions: Asia Japan MGM Resorts has ramped up its efforts to gain a foothold in the Japanese market after being confirmed as the title sponsor of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) season-opening fixtures in the country next month.The 2019 MGM MLB Opening Series will feature two high-profile games at the Tokyo Dome between the Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners on March 20-21, as well as games between the MLB teams and clubs from Japan’s top baseball league in day/night double-headers on March 17-18. The title sponsorship deal is supported by the MLB Players’ Association, the league said.The US league unveiled a multi-year partnership with MGM Resorts International in November, covering league and team sponsorships, data usage, promotion across MLB-owned media platforms and domestic and international activations.However, it is significant that Japan has been selected as the location for MGM’s first major marketing activation around an event operated by the league.MGM said that it plans to build a “uniquely Japanese, world-class integrated resort” in the country after the government finally passed into law a long-awaited bill last July, despite significant opposition from politicians and the public.However, with the legislation only allowing for three casinos to be developed before a review in the late 2020s, several major operators seeking to establish a Japanese base are set to miss out initially.With that in mind, MGM is hoping to steal a march on its rivals.Last month, former Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval was unveiled as MGM Resorts International’s new president of global gaming development, with a particular focus on Japan.Speaking about his appointment, Sandoval said that MGM Resorts chairman and CEO Jim Murren had formed critical relationships in Japan and in sports. He added: “I look forward to building upon this strong foundation”.Aside from the Opening Series sponsorship, MGM Resorts is already planning to play a prominent role in supporting MLB’s grassroots baseball events in Japan. One such event will be the league’s Road Show, which tours the country, giving fans an opportunity to participate in activities such as batting and pitching cages, as well as virtual reality experiences.The activations are likely to bring MGM into contact with a significant proportion of the Japanese public.Outside North and Central America, Japan is baseball’s biggest market. Upon the request of the Tokyo 2020 local organising committee, the sport has been added to the programme for next year’s Olympics, despite having not featured at the Games since 2008.Next month, MGM plans to activate at fan-facing events outside the Tokyo Dome ballpark, while also having its logo on a jersey patch on the Athletics’ right sleeve during the Opening Series games.“MGM Resorts will have a great opportunity to engage with and experience the extraordinary passion of baseball fans in Japan,” said Noah Garden, MLB’s executive vice-president of commerce.However, it remains to be seen whether MGM will have the opportunity to build on its lobbying and marketing efforts in Japan with the league’s future Opening Series endeavours. This year will represent the fifth time that MLB has opened its season in Tokyo, but the last Opening Series in the Japanese capital took place seven years ago.Image: Dick Thomas Johnson AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 26th February 2019 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Baseball set to give MGM Japanese foothold
The NHS’s Northern Gambling Service has opened a new clinic in Sunderland as it continues to expand its treatment services across northern England.The clinic will include a consultant psychologist, a consultant psychiatrist, a clinical psychologist and a senior mental health nurse.“I’m delighted to be opening our new base in Sunderland,” consultant psychologist Matthew Gaskell, the clinical lead for the clinic, said. “This will help make our service more accessible to people in the North East where we know there are thousands of people who need our support.“Gambling addiction is a new public health crisis. It’s causing serious harm to thousands of people across the UK. This includes mental health problems, serious debt, breakdown of relationships, loss of employment, crime, homelessness and sometimes suicide.Gaskell said that treatment such as that provided at the clinic has a proven record of helping gambling addicts towards recovery.“Through my work in mental health and addictions treatment over the years I’ve seen the harms that problem gambling can inflict on people. However the chances of recovery from addictions like problem gambling can be very good with proper treatment. I often see people make good sustained recoveries when they seek help.“The Northern Gambling Service works alongside many other agencies and charities to support people. We believe ‘any door is the right door’ and people can either refer themselves for help, or come to us via any of these agencies and charities.”The NHS said that treatment available at the facility includes, psychological therapies, addiction treatment programmes, mental health treatment, family therapy and peer support.The opening of the Sunderland facility follows a clinic in Leeds, the first NHS gambling addiction clinic outside of London, in September. The NHS said that a facility based in Manchester to serve the North West, was to follow.Claire Murdoch, NHS national director for mental health, said the new clinics are part of a co-ordinated plan to tackle gambling addiction.“The NHS is constantly rising to meet new health challenges,” Murdoch said. “We are fighting back against the misery of mental ill health caused by gambling addiction by rolling out new specialist clinics across the country, as part of our long term plan.”“While the NHS will always be there for people – adapting, improving and increasing different and new treatments as our patients need them. The gambling industry, which rakes in billions of pounds from punters and spends vast amounts on aggressive marketing to reel ever more people in, really has to shoulder the blame and ensure a fair amount of its profits help those in need.”In December 2019, the NHS revealed figures that showed the 321 people were admitted to hospital in England for reasons related to gambling in the 2018-19 fiscal year, less than 2017-18 but more than double the total in 2014-15.

There has been no word of him since then.“Anyone who has reliable information about what has happened to Vanambyl is urged to get in touch with his family or radio station,” the press freedom organisation said. “He is a neutral observer and not a participant in this war, and must therefore be freed at once if he is still being held by the FUC.”Vanambyl presents the programme “Right to know” on FM Liberté, which is based in N’Djamena. He was sent to Mongo, the capital of the central Guéra region, on 6 April to cover the humanitarian problems resulting from the rebel advance.Local sources told Reporters Without Borders that Vanambyl met the first FUC units to reach Mongo at around noon yesterday. After ordering him to identify himself, they took him with them, the sources said. He later managed to call FM Liberté director Gata Nder with his mobile phone. As they spoke, a rebel took the phone from him and insulted Nder before hanging up.Since then, neither his family nor his colleagues have been able to reach him. Reporters Without Borders has confirmed that his mobile phone is turned off. Local sources today told Reporters Without Borders that the FUC rebels left Mongo, taking Vanambyl with them.

He has not yet been allowed access to a lawyer. According to the information obtained by RSF, the head of the Hargeisa regional court determined that Digaale allowed false information constituting incitement to violence to be broadcast on Universal TV’s Somali-language news report on 2 February. In this programme, residents of the El-Afwayn region complained about police interference in clashes between tribes.“Mohamed Aabi Digaale’s detention is completely arbitrary and illegal,” RSF said. “We call for his immediate release and we expect the authorities to respect press freedom, which is enshrined in Somaliland’s constitution.”The Somaliland Journalists Association (SOLJA) and Human Right Centre have both condemned Digaale’s arrest and have called for his immediate release.

Controllers contacted gardaí in Wexford and made a report to them.The plane landed safely at Shannon with no injuries to the crew or damage to the plane. “The Irish Aviation Authority takes such incidents very seriously and reports dozens of incidents to the gardaí every year,” the Irish Aviation Authority said.“Shining a laser at an aircraft can affect the safety of an aircraft, especially if the aircraft is at a critical phase, such as landing.“While the majority of reported incidents have been found to have a low-safety impact, pilots have reported flash blindness, glare and being distracted from lasers.”Last Sunday, a transatlantic flight turned around north of Donegal and returned to London Heathrow after one of the pilots was affected by a laser.
