The advancements in technology have caused virtually every aspect of our day to day lives to change at breakneck speeds. The old way of doing things is no longer valid and we must either keep up or be left behind.
This is true for many things, even professional sports. The age of the internet has created a new breed of fans who are interested in more than just the simple gameplay that we got used to in the old days. These fans want interaction, up-to-date news, and special offers - and they will not settle for anything less.
Arsenal's Answer to Changing Technology
If you are a fan of the Arsenal Football Club, then you may have noticed a slight change in the way that things are done. In an effort to gain sponsorship dollars and to meet the changing needs of their fanbase, Arsenal has been partnering with the gaming companies,. For instance, draftkings, paddypower, Betfair and might be partnering with more gaming and betting companies especially from Sweden as it became a “gaming startup nation”
Arsenal Football Club was founded in 1886 as a munition workers' team from Woolwich, then in Kent, now southeast London. They turned professional in 1891 and joined The Football League two years later. They were promoted to the First Division in 1904 but financial problems meant they were close to bankruptcy by 1910. They were bought out by Sir Henry Norris that year and to improve the club's financial standing, he moved the team to Arsenal Stadium, Highbury, north London in 1913. After the First World War he arranged for the club's promotion back to the First Division, in controversial circumstances.
