They plead guilty to taking about $1 billion in wagers since the 2006 World Cup … not sure what sentence they face. The criminal-in-China enterprise though, was running its bets offshore to Macau. Interesting … though I’m not totally sure why yet. But clearly a major international issue moving forward.
Check it out, coming soon … one of the big draws to The Venetian Resort and Casino in Macau … The Manchester United Experience:
Football fans get ready for Asia’s first interactive football experience opening this November at The Manchester United Experience. Come experience the passion of the world’s most celebrated football club as you step into the boots of your favorite footballers. Immerse yourself in an interactive history of the club, lace up your boots and compete against fans from around Asia in our training zone, get a virtual tour of Old Trafford and see football like never before in our 4D Theatre of Dreams.
I have no idea what a 4D Theatre of Dreams might be. But the best I can tell it’s a combo museum/store — sorta like a Hard Rock or Planet Hollywood of Man-U soccer.
