Inter Milans grand plans stretch far beyond Italy as it harnesses the connections of its new Chinese ownership to expand the fan base and attract sponsors in Asia. Youth Jaguars Super Bowl Jerseys .There an illustrious history attached to the brand for Inters executives to sell to companies: From the three Champions League triumphs to the 18 Italian titles.Theres just little to trumpet about the clubs current showing on the field.In the first season since being bought by Chinese electronics retailer Suning in June, Inter has won just three of its eight league games and sits 11th in Serie A. The team heads into Thursdays Europa League game against Southampton bottom of its group without a point after two losses.Publicly, they arent panicking yet in the Inter boardroom or contemplating a change of coaches, with Frank de Boer only two months into the job.He came in 10 days before the start of the season, chief executive Michael Bolingbroke said. So we want to give him time.Bolingbroke, a former Manchester United executive, talked enthusiastically for 40 minutes during a visit to London, about a five-year plan to transform the club thats approaching halftime.My remit when I joined (in 2012) was to get Inter back successful on and successful off the pitch, Bolingbroke said. Consistently in the Champions League, making money, not losing money.Suning announced in June that it was buying nearly 70 percent of the clubs equity for around 270 million euros (then $306 million). The change of ownership from Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir to Chinese entrepreneur Zhang Jindong has enabled Inter to accelerate the business plan, Bolingbroke said.Losses of around 60 million euros ($66 million) are set to be reported for 2015-16 but Inter expects to have cut them by a third this year and be profitable by 2019.Although revenue is forecast to break the 200 million-euro barrier this season, that is only a third of Manchester Uniteds 2016-17 target, one of the biggest in soccer. The gulf in the clubs moneymaking abilities reflects just how far Serie A lags the English Premier League, after being the dominant competition in Europe at the end of the last century.Sunings ownership can help to redress the balance, with Bolingbroke regarding Chinese owners as a game-changer for Inter.They think we as a club have completely underestimated the value of being in China and we are guilty of not exploiting the Chinese market enough, he said. When we sat down with them, they asked why we dont have more sponsors in Asia.Why would Asia sponsors want to be associated with a struggling team in a league that lacks the global coverage of the Premier League or La Liga? In China, hitching yourself to soccer is in vogue, viewed as a shortcut to securing influence in high places now that President Xi Jinping has encouraged investment in the game to strengthen the domestic league and national team.But Suning, which also owns Jiangsu Suning club at home, is not just frittering cash on soccer to rise up the business strata.If it was all about politics, why would they say a priority is not losing money? Bolingbroke stresses.To make money, 12 Inter staff will be operating from a Chinese sales office in Nanjing by next month, working closely with Sunings local HQ.As European clubs, its very hard in Asia unless you have a bridgehead, opening doors, Bolingbroke said. If you dont have a Suning with you, you dont have access to that business in China. With the access they have, we have opportunities we didnt have before they came along.Inter estimates 148 million of its 311 million fans are in China, citing data from research firm Repucom. Inter is also working in tandem with Jiangsu Suning, the Chinese Super League club also owned by Zhang.They have spent a lot of time trying to understand how our academy system works, Bolingbroke said. They want Jiangsu Suning to be top of the Chinese Super League, not by importing players but developing their own.There is no directive to bring Chinese players over to the San Siro just to pander to the ownership at home.We fail if we dont win trophies, Bolingbroke said. You arent going to be able to do that if you compromised your technical squad because a signing would be good for sponsorship.Winning with the current squad is hard enough at the moment as it endures a four-game run without a win.---Rob Harris is at www.twitter.com/RobHarris and www.facebook.com/RobHarrisReports Logan Cooke Jersey .

Thousands of Southern California fans enveloped the Trojans to celebrate an improbable win secured by an interim coach, an inconsistent kicker and a thin defence that wouldnt break.Legendary WWE commentator Jim Ross thinks WrestleMania could be held in the United Kingdom in the future. This years WWE bonanza will take place in Texas 105,000-capacity AT&T Stadium, continuing the 32-year tradition of remaining within the United States and Canada.But Ross, the 40-year veteran of the announce table who has now stepped away from WWE, foresees a day when WrestleMania could finally cross the pond. Theres no doubt that the WWE Wrestlemania event could sell out any stadium in the country. Jim Ross I think the chances increase every year that this will happen, he told Huffington Post. Theres no doubt that the WWE Wrestlemania event could sell out any stadium in the country.Im not saying that in an egocentric way, that is my opinion. They did it before with Summerslam years ago and as Gorilla Monsoon would say, the fans were hanging from the rafters! Shane McMahon will face The Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell at WrestleMania I would say, merely as speculation and knowing how important the UK is to WWE for their global picture, I am beginning to believe that there is a greater chance than before it is going to happen.The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony is an annual tradition that takes place 24 hours before WrestleMania as a means of honouring legendary wrestlers from previous generations on the biggest possible stage. Brock Lesnar agreed to a No Holds Barred Match against Dean Ambrose at WrestleMania Ross commeentated throughout the careers of iconic British competitors and would like to see the Hall of Fame recognise their contribution. Cheap Jaguars Super Bowl Jerseys. .He said: I have always been impressed with guys like William Regal and the British Bulldogs. I think the Bulldogs - the late Davey Boy Smith and Tommy Billington AKA the Dynamite Kid - are long overdue to be inducted in to the WWE Hall of Fame. Wayne Rooney got physical when WWE last visited England! Thats just my opinion. They were a great team and brought acclaim to their homeland and were way ahead of their time in terms of their in-ring styles.I dont think anyone would argue the fact that they are a Hall of Fame worthy team. Its just unfortunate that Davey is no longer with us and Dynamite has had his share of health problems which would prevent him from coming to the States for any ceremony. I would like to see those guys honoured at some point - I think it would be great. WrestleMania 32 Live on Sky Sports Box Office.
