Opposite the building on the other side of the water is the Wirral, land of the wool.

:)

Not great viewing in the day, but when the sun sets on the far side of the peninsula it does generate some very nice sunsets with the nicer buildings (spires etc) silhouetted against the setting sun.

BM Dock, if you are looking at said sunset, is to the right.

The river flows from left to right so BM Dock is more towards the mouth of the river / the Irish Sea.

The space age building is either the new liverpool museum (if you mean the stone coloured one) or it's the black ones that's Mann Island which is a collection of appartments etc although there is a photographic gallery there and RIBA (architectural institute) is going to open a museum there too.

Tell you what I can't wait for that.

The liver birds lit up in blue across the way for Bramley Moore's first game, an evening kick off befitting of the occasion.

Journo's swarming, desperate to get into the good books now the narrative has turned from plucky Everton who can't quite compete to the glorious Everton, 9 times champions retaking their place as one of the country's truly great clubs.

Farhad Moshiri waves to the crowd (55k not including corporate 😁) from the directors seat, and a selection of representatives from the everton fans forum, EITC and of course the glorious 2017 double cup winning side captain Phil Jagielka cut the ribbon on the tunnel.

The famous pipes call out, cutting through the crowd noise and shushing even veteran blues in the towering new Mersey Stand.

The call of the crowd rises to meet it..

Captain Steven Naismith leads out the mighty blues.

I very much doubt he'd be buying the Liver building if the ground situation wasn't very likely to happen, so this is all good news. Bringing potential signings to his corner office, overlooking the waterfront and our gleaming new stadium would seem to be a much more attractive proposition than driving down Priory Road, for example.

Aye, quite nicely matey. Kicking cans at pigeons or down on their luck folk who may once have been reputable insurance salespeople is all in the past now. Will change the words to 'hang them one by one from the blue birds over the royal blue Mersey' and inform GrantyBoy   :thumbsup:

the person who put the idea to the board will never - EVER - admit it, but it came from a forum post on here about two years before our shop was announced.  There was a rumour that we were opening a shop in Liverpool One, so I said it should be called "Everton Two" because of the address thing and obvious joke.  This was at a time when this person spent more time on NSNO than I did, from behind his computer above the Megastore (Everton One).

the person who put the idea to the board will never - EVER - admit it, but it came from a forum post on here about two years before our shop was announced.  There was a rumour that we were opening a shop in Liverpool One, so I said it should be called "Everton Two" because of the address thing and obvious joke.  This was at a time when this person spent more time on NSNO than I did, from behind his computer above the Megastore (Everton One).

What did he say tho?

It's a sponsorship deal that should have fringe benefits and grow the younger fanbase globally. Obviously depends on how Everton play it. Hopefully it's something they seize upon, not like when we had the keys to huge parts of the Australian and USA markets.

It would be interesting to see what these numbers are so far in 2017. The club have tweeted a load about how many downloads etc. But I think the brand is probably on the decline. Not many people download the game anymore and the Angry Bird merchandise is nothing compared to what it was a couple of years ago.

I'm not complaining though, 2m per annum is a decent income stream, and I have actually heard of this company, unlike Sportspesa.

No.

We hardly make any money from shirt sales.

And it won't affect the deal value, as the reason Angry Birds are paying us is to have their logo televised to tens of millions of consumers around the world, not to a few thousands scousers walking around Goodison wearing the shirt on match day.

I know I get all that, but It would be interesting to see what the figures look like so far for 2017 as the Angry Bird brand looks to be on the decline, it's nowhere near how huge it was a few years ago.
Every shop you went in had angry birds kids clothes or merchandise etc.
They had adverts on the TV every 10 minutes, it's nowhere near that big now, which is why those figures are slightly misleading, you can guarantee the vast majority of the downloads, YouTube views and Facebook followers were in the early days, it wouldn't surprise me if just 5% of them total numbers are from the last 18 months.

It's a good move for the club, but to think we're now going to get some massive influx of young fans and be on the lips of billions of people worldwide is overdoing it. They are coming to us for advertisement, not the other way round.
It kind of wreeks of old men thinking they know what the youth want.

Maybe we should take some inspiration from the Vikings. :)

The sponsorship is with Rovio, not just Angry Birds. Angry Birds just happens to be by far their most recognised product.
Rovio seem to be planning some big moves at the moment. They have plans for an IPO and are trying to build up their brand recognition, which is what they will hope to get from our partnership. There are also rumours of acquisitions, so it is possible that Angry Birds won't be the only product linked with us.
There's also the 2nd movie coming out soon.

I think its a great opportunity for us and hopefully we have the organisation in place to take advantage of it

There is apparantly another film coming out in 2019. So I would imagine the presence of the brand will be driven up considerably starting in the new year which I guess this is the start of.
At the end of the day a rumoured 2m per season is not bad and if we can use it to our advantage to grow our presence among impressionable young kids, get exposure within the game, maybe the film then it can't hurt can it.

Yeah I hope we don't get thrashed by Man Utd or that could be pretty embarrassing especially if we are using Rovio as a conduit for greater exposure.

Apart from that I guess today is the perfect time to announce this deal since we are live on Sky and we are playing a football club which is an enormous global football brand so millions and millions of people will be tuning in to watch. No doubt the commentators will say something about it, the cameras will zoom in on the Everton shirt sleeves and perhaps Red will become our mascot for at least this game.

I also think this is a very clever move from the club, maybe the Angry Birds franchise reached its peak a few years ago but it still is very popular   franchise and as already mentioned on here, there will be a new Angry Birds movie in the works and there are still millions who play the Angry Birds worldwide.

Other than the 2m a year we get from them then I'm still not convinced this is going to help Evertons brand much, I don't think any shirt sponsorship really does, it helps the sponsor.

We are not sponsoring them, as far as I know they aren't going to advertise anything Everton related.
I've just had a browse on their websites and can't find 1 thing Everton related. They are a much bigger brand than us but are obviously using us to get some advertisement in the PL, I don't think the size of the brand makes much difference to the football club, it's about how much money you get. 1 look at the top teams sponsors will answer that. Hopefully Rovio paid more than anyone else.

They are not there to increase our "brand", they are there to pay us to increase theirs.

There has been a continual stream of cartoon series about angry birds. McDonalds toys. Normal toys, the lot.
Brand recognition is so high it is almost strange that they are advertising on our sleeves.

This is essentially what I've been saying. As long as they paid us the most then I'm happy, as @Ell Capitan (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=3946) said it makes very little difference to us how big the sponsors brand is. We are just essentially selling them a canvas to advertise on that will be viewed by millions worldwide (the PL).

There is an article somewhere that goes in to shirt sponsorship in more detail (I just can't find it), basically saying that the club's don't really increase their brand rep, and a lot of the time the sponsors don't actually get much back in revenue.
Stadium sponsorship (for brand new stadiums) on the other hand is very lucrative for both clubs and sponsors.

If they don't have a CGI video of a couple of angry birds using the liver birds as the arms of a catapult and firing into Anfield, destroying it completely, then Everton's marketing/PR team need sacking.

SCRIPT:

"We need to take down Everton's old ground to move into the new one."
Birds launched and Anfield destroyed.
"Not that one, bird-brain! They haven't played there for years! Never mind, it does look better though doesn't it?
Lots of chirpy sniggering.

Sponsorship is about us getting money and them getting advertisement space. don't look at it as being the other way around.
They are not there to increase our "brand", they are there to pay us to increase theirs.

There has been a continual stream of cartoon series about angry birds. McDonalds toys. Normal toys, the lot.
Brand recognition is so high it is almost strange that they are advertising on our sleeves.



You're pissing on the naysayers chips here. Pack it in!

I'm glad that they have given us a few quid and I hope it leads to larger deals in the future, but as a brand in my opinion it is almost certainly not going in the right direction.

Search interest is the lowest worldwide in 5 years. Not a perfect metric as it doesn't take into account say social mentions or app searches (which you could imagine being the meat and drink) but I mean come on, it is clearly not the powerhouse it was a few years ago, misguided film franchise or no.

I genuinely don't get it by the way, not just being confrontational.

People who own billboards don't refuse advertisements because they're "not big enough"
Metrics about a falling brand IS THE EXACT REASON they are looking to give us some of their money.

Honestly, i think you guys need to go back to the drawing board and fundamentally reassess what you think these deals are all about.

No I understand perfectly, and as I say I'm happy about them throwing us a few quid on the way down, but in terms of Everton acting like a big brand and associating itself with brands that reflect those values of success etc, this is not representative of that.

There was however about 5 pages of people talking about whether or not this works from our POV, and how big Rovio are now compared to their pomp.

OK, i can sort of see that point of view.
I disagree with it as i think the point of selling advertising space is to get money. If it was about anything else then EiTC would be on our shirts and nothing else. (akin to what Barca did)
Considering we have just replaced a beer company with an online betting company as our main sponsor - a child friendly gaming/cartoon company doesn't seem that bad to me.

By the way, Rovio as a game maker may have seen a decline - but the IP of angrybirds far, far surpasses that now. It was only last week they were looking at a billion dollar IPO. The only downtick for them was when they failed to get on board with the IAP model and everybody overtook them. That's all small beans to them now though.
They would have had meetings with most of the clubs in the premier league. Found out what each one was after as a sponsorship package and then decided what we were asking for compared to our exposure/TV appearances suited their budget. Nothing more, nothing less.
If they had a 10m budget for a sponsorship deal they would be on the arms of United. Simple as that.

Yep I agree, if we're concerned about brand image when it comes to sponsors then I'm sure SportPesa the Kenyan betting company is a bigger concern. Not sure where I stand because I sort of think they go hand in hand - as you mention above when you reference rovio's budget. The bigger you are the more you can demand etc.

I don't particularly like just seeing it as ad space but clearly it isn't a concern for those in charge.

That said, I'm glad we didn't just totally not get one at all, which I wouldn't have been surprised about really.

Wayne Rooney is already a globally-recognised footballer but the Everton striker could be set for worldwide stardom of a different kind with his potential immortalisation in the Angry Birds online game franchise.

The club expect the new shirt-sleeve sponsorship deal with Rovio, the game's developers, will produce both financial and exposure benefits to boost their profile to unprecedented levels.

One area could see Rooney appear in a Toffees spin-off version of the massively-popular online game.

Everton's partnership with the Finnish company may have brought howls of derision from certain sections of the fanbase due to the game's main character being a red bird - the colour of cross-city rivals Liverpool - but Press Association Sport understands in Premier League boardrooms up and down the country the club have been privately congratulated for securing such an innovative deal.

The club hope to boost their appeal in a different demographic in key growth markets, particularly the likes of China and the Far East, as Angry Birds has a global brand awareness third only to Disney and Lego, while Rovio are looking to capitalise on the immense global appeal of the Premier League.

'We have a history of doing Angry Bird homages of real-life characters so obviously now we are in collaboration (with Everton) we can work together to bring interesting characters and profiles into the games,' said Ville Heijari, Rovio Entertainment's chief marketing officer told Press Association Sport.

'Potentially Wayne Rooney would be involved.

'It is not just enough that we reach mobile players; we want to reach sports fans, television spectators, so it is a big audience we are going after.'

Assuming there is no conflict between the club 'brand/image'  and the advertisers 'brand/image then I would assume the deal is done mostly on what is the greatest financial reward for the club?
I understand the benefits of being linked with top global brands in advertising but it strikes me that this is a similar discussion to team building - we know where we are now and where we want to be. However, it's not one step it's several and we need to work towards getting to the top and then the global brands will be knocking on our door.
With regards to Sportpesa being well known -was Etihad before Man City spent the money?

That is what I said?? I hope they gave us the most money for it.

It was everyone else going on about how big the brand was and how many millions of new fans we were getting. I'm saying they're not that big of a brand anymore, they want to pay us to advertise their brand, not the other way round.
