Fulham ‘realistic’ despite being seventh, says Silva

Published

on


Marco Silva insists Fulham’s targets will not change this season despite going seventh in the Premier League with a 2-1 win over Southampton.
Joao Palhinha headed in a late winner after James Ward-Prowse had made amends for his earlier own goal by bending in a free-kick.
Aleksandar Mitrovic also missed a late penalty but it mattered not as Silva’s side secured another three points following the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace on Boxing Day.
But the Fulham boss was keen to stress that his side must keep their feet on the ground and says Premier League survival is still the focus.
“We have to be realistic,” the Fulham boss said.
“I’m not talking (about) the ambition that we have and my ambition as a manager, the way the team is playing as well.
“We are a really ambitious club but we know our reality, we know what type of competition we are playing in and the type of teams we are playing against. Southampton are in last position in the table and it was really tough for us.
“We are not in a position to change one word of our targets and our goals this season. We really have to keep our feet on the ground.
“What’s realistic is to fight to remain in the Premier League. This is what we are fighting for.
“It’s not to take pressure off us because I love the pressure. It’s something that we have to embrace.
“But to change in the middle of the season without a reason, because I don’t see a reason, our targets and our goals we don’t change in this way. Our target is to remain in the Premier League.
“It’s a very good achievement from ourselves to reach 25 points at this moment in the season but we need much more to remain in the Premier League.”

Published

By



Clarion Gaming, organizer of ICE London, says it has narrowed the shortlist of potential future hosts of the hugely popular industry trade show to four European cities, with its current London home joined by Barcelona and Madrid in Spain as well as Paris, France.
The decision to explore a potential move comes amid pressure from some industry representatives, with Clarion working alongside specialist consultants Equimore to establish the finalist shortlist. The successful candidate will be announced in 3Q23 following a competitive bidding process and will host ICE for a period of five years between 2025 and 2029.
“This robust process is customer-centric and the decision will be taken in the best interests of our stakeholders and of the global gaming industry,” said Alex Pratt, Group Managing Director of Clarion Gaming.
“iGB Affiliate London is very much part of the process and we are engaging with iGB Affiliate stakeholders in order to identify their preferred strategic path.
“The four short-listed cities will progress through a selection process with the help of the experienced and knowledgeable team at Equimore which is overseeing every aspect of what is a robust program.
“In addition to the suitability of locations in terms of capacity, facilities and the ability to accommodate projected future growth the process also encompasses dateline availability, transport connectivity with the rest of the world as well as the broader hospitality infrastructure including accommodation costs.
“By pursuing all due diligence we will identify the city that’s best equipped to not only host an event which continues to play such a central role in helping to create opportunity and prosperity for gaming businesses of all sizes, across every vertical and in every global jurisdiction, but also demonstrate its leadership in the sector.
“In the interests of transparency Clarion will not be making any further comment during the official process.”

ICE London 2023 to feature exhibitors from record 68 nations – IAG

Published

By



Industry trade show ICE London will feature exhibitors from a record 68 nations, topping the previous best of 65 set three years ago, according to organizer Clarion Gaming.
ICE London returns as a full-sized show for the first time since 2020 from 7 to 9 February, with the total 623 exhibitors representing everything from Argentina to Australia and Macau to Mexico.
“No other exhibition in the gaming space can come anywhere near the internationalism of ICE,” said Clarion Gaming Managing Director, Stuart Hunter.
“To have 68 nations represented by our community of exhibitors means that visitors are immediately part of what is a global experience with unique access to the smartest gaming innovators drawn from every corner of the world. There are very few exhibitions of scale in any industry sector which are able to compare with such international representation and legitimately lay claim to being a ‘global’ or a ‘world’ event.
“Once an event is recognized as being genuinely international, stakeholder groups including brands, regulators, trade associations, media groups and strategic industry-wide bodies focus their activities accordingly.
“Research that we’ve undertaken has shown that for many people ICE and iGB Affiliate London actually start on the Sunday preceding and finish on the following Saturday. In that week we estimate that over 100 gambling industry events will take place outside of the show hours providing a new and compelling perspective on why ICE and iGB Affiliate London are so influential and important to the world industry.”
IAG will have a team of four at ICE London next week. Visit us at Stand ND7-C.
