    China's Suning Sports raises $600 million from Alibaba, Goldman Sachs

    BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s Suning Sports, the owner of Italian soccer giants Inter Milan, said it has raised $600 million (461 million pounds) in a series A funding from firms including Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (BABA.N) and Goldman Sachs (GS.N).

    A spokeswoman for the company, part of retail giant Suning Holdings, told Reuters on Friday that the funding round did not include or impact Inter Milan. She added the firm would soon start a series B fund raising.

    Suning Sports had on Thursday announced it was raising funds from e-commerce giant Alibaba and Goldman Sachs, among others, but had not released any financial details.

    shout out to ma boy archie, buying watches is like buying football players, if his price doesn't hurt, he's probably a shitter. it gotta fucking hurt or it's not worth doing.

    I'm a fan of watches. But this guy... A watch shows you the fucking time. Functionally. Aesthetically, well, it's a matter of taste. Production-wise, a 250$ watch is probably as good as a 25000$, I'm talking about durability and precision here, not gold and diamonds. As a status symbol, maybe you can show you have an extremely small dick by spending exuberant amounts of money on a fucking timepiece. Again, I'm a huge fan of watches, but this guy can fuck right off.

    But then again, I get to know Mino a bit more - he likes flashy things, be it a Philippe Patek or a Hazard.
    Inter is an artistic venture, almost poetic. It is capable of provoking immense, unreachable joy and bitter disappointment. Its never done by half-measures.
    For me, Inter is the opening to new worlds and courage. Its a strong passion, a marvellous illness. You can put up with the weaknesses and admire the courage, the same way you would with a son.

    lel, with 250$ you only get quartz shitters or mass produced automatic shitters.
    good watches have in-house movements, and they start at 6000$

    yeah it's about social status, but now you're not showing off with a shitty iphone, but with an in-house made automatic fuck off watch.
    if you own a patek, you can basically say fuck off to any motherfucker on earth.

    We are owned by Suning Sports (a subsidiary of Suning), which in turn also owns Suning FC in china and PP sports which apparently has the exclusive rights to transmit the top 5 european football leagues. This is kind of like a vertical integration and to be honest could POTENTIALLY be fucking amazing for us with some luck. Think of it this way, its like owning the oil and having the distribution network, they can sell their own oil. Or think Netflix if they owned movie studios, they'd push self made movies more to subscribers as opposed to 3rd party content. We have the infrastructure and are so well positioned in China to take advantage of it if we have success.

    It wouldn't surprise me if we get a deal to have a netflix/juve type show on this PP sports and various Inter promotions. From top of my head this could have so many benefits such as, being on the good side of the commie emperor Xi, gaining first mover advantage in china (which in sports is very very important, think how many chinese fans we'd get for a long term period if we are the first team they support). Funnily enough, Erick Thohir also owns other media platforms especially in Indonesia, so that could potentially benefit us as well, south-east asia is a market who gets neglected, but underestimate at your own risk. I wouldn't be surprised if Suning made a joint offer with AliBaba for all of thohirs assets or at least co-operate to leverage the synergies that can be generated if they co-operate. I just found that Alibaba has similar platform like PP sports and co-operates with Suning on transmission of sports events.

    On Thursday, Suning Sports announced it had signed a strategic partnership with Alibaba, under which the video sites of the companies, Suning’s PPTV and Alibaba-backed Youku, will cooperate on sports content.

    Youku recently paid roughly 1.6 billion yuan ($236.25 million) to broadcast the World Cup in China.

    Suning Holdings, the parent firm, started as a retailer in China with its listed company Suning.com and has been aggressively pushing into China’s sports industry.

    It also recently led a $2 billion bet to get near monopoly on broadcasting football in China.
    According to the funding round (which is $600 m for 23%), this Suning Sport is valued at $2.6 billion (including Inter), so despite it not 'impacting' Inter, I suspect they may have equity in us, I can not see how you get 23% of a firm without not owning the proportional percentage in its subsidiaries (ie 23% of their 70% stake in Inter). Considering that Ali Baba and Goldman Sachs are backing it, I am very very optimistic about the positive impact this can have.

    The sports arm of Chinese retail giant Suning Holdings Group told Reuters on Friday that the funding round did not include Inter Milan and two other local football teams that it owns.
    nvm this funding round was about the tv, still very optimistic how beneficial this can be.

    I am 100% certain the drooling cunts at UEFA are going to change the FFP regulations yet again by limiting the number of sponsorships, or declaring money from China to be illegal funding, or banning youth player sales from counting towards capital gains, or whatever fucking nonsense they can think of, just to specifically fuck us.

    Lol that's what I was thinking. The fuck do they want with us?

    When Infantino became president I thought he's gona give us a hand somehow regarding those shitty regulations fucking us up, but he's been useless as fuck. I remember Platini doing favors for jube when he was a UEFA president before his ethical violations, typical jube scum.

    We deserve a chance really, someone should give us some of that.

    Shit doesnt happen
