Virgin Enterprises launches new 'Virgin Sports' brand in Gibraltar
The owner of Virgin Enterprises, Richard Branson has taken to the pitch in his latest business endeavour. Branson has launched the brand new Virgin Sports Premier League in Gibratar and has bankrolled all of the tiny island nation's clubs in a move to push Gibraltar forward as one of the world's leading forces in football.
"The Virgin Sports Premier League's ground sharing system has allowed Gibraltar to prosper despite the fact that it is so small"
When asked about how he would combat the difficulties Virgin Sports will face due to Gibraltar's size, Mr Branson told of a development scheme which is already under construction in Gibraltar; "We are looking to build 6 State of the Art Stadiums around the island: One for the National Team, and 5 which will be shared by VPL clubs. We will be hosting weekend spectaculars at these stadiums, which is an initiative that has already attracted interest from Football Fans worldwide. The VPL's ground sharing system has allowed Gibraltarian Football to prosper despite the fact that it is so small. If anything, the fact that the island is so small could be seen as a benefit".
"Fans will be coming from all corners of the world to see the superstars in the Virgin Premier League"
Virgin Enterprises have been comprehensive in their efforts to attract fans from all over the world, offering cut price flight tickets to those who purchase season tickets and 'Weekend Spectacular' tickets. This is said to have driven interest of Virgin Flights tickets to Gibraltar through the roof.
"Our flights to Gibraltar have always been popular, but due to the developments taking place and the new commercial opportunities on the Island thanks to Virgin Sports, more people are coming here than ever." told Branson.
"We are building hotels, airports, stadiums, mall complexes and other attractions across the island and are investing billions into Gibraltar to ensure Virgin Sports can grow into one of the biggest sports brands in the world. I am 100% confident that fans will be coming from all corners of the world to see the superstars in the Virgin Premier League, and we want to make sure that they have the football experience of a lifetime."
"The Virgin Premier League will be watched in households worldwide courtesy of the new Virgin Sports TV Channel, which will inject billions every season into the VPL"
"Virgin Sports want the launch of the VPL in Gibraltar to be an unforgettable occasion. We have found very wealthy investors for every club in the league, who will insure that they receive the significant investment required to be among the best in the world. One source of income is the new Virgin Sports TV Channel, which is bringing the thrills of the VPL to living rooms and pubs all over the world every weekend".
