You might have noticed that SWU has now moved to a proper domain (www.soccerwrapup.com), and hopefully in the coming days the entire website will be given a new fresh design.

Social Media en el Super Bowl

Sincronizando at related • 0 views

Uno de los eventos deportivos con mas rating es el Super Bowl, se habla de el intensamente semanas antes, y semanas después. Es un evento capaz de atraer masas, y es por eso que las marcas y las empresas buscan ser parte de este evento, no solo en anuncios, sino también en las redes sociales.

Es normal que se hable acerca de los anuncios en el Super Bowl, incluso algunas personas esperan más los anuncios de las grandes marcas que el evento mismo, las grandes cantidades de dinero que paga una marca por anunciarse durante 30 segundos aumentan año con año, para este 2014, la cifra fue de cuatro millones de dólares por esos segundos, pero hay algo que está tomando mucha fuerza, la gran contribución esta vez compartiendo comentarios, anuncios, opiniones, etc.

So, by all accounts, Arsenal went into media lock-down after what happened at Stamford Bridge.

The pre-game press conference, scheduled for today has been cancelled, and the club will provide some quotes for the papers/media outlets ahead of the game. I guess that will include some team updates in terms of injuries, and especially in relation to Laurent Koscielny who was withdrawn at half-time on a Saturday with a calf problem.

Arjen Robben has come out and vehemently denied spurious claims that he spat on Bacary Sagna during last night's Champions League last-16 tie at the Emirates.

Twitter, Facebook and the like were awash with consternation and diatribe last night when television footage appeared to show Robben allowing a dangle of spittle to fall on the French right-back as he lay face-down on the turf, but the Dutch winger has claimed that it was a bead of sweat and nothing more.
