FUZHOU puma suede heart reset rose , China, Oct. 20 (Xinhua) -- The 1st National Youth Games, which opened Sunday in China's Fuzhou, capital city of Fujian Province, might be hit by typhoon Koppu.


Typhoon Koppu, the 24th typhoon of the year puma suede heart reset femme pas cher , was hoving over the northeast of Luzon in the Philippines on Tuesday morning and it is expected to move north from Thursday and batter China's southeastern regions.


The Fuzhou Weather Bureau issued a strong wind alert earlier Tuesday, and it said the wind will be especially strong in the coastal area.


Sports like sailing, archery and softball are expected to be affected by Koppu, and the organizing committee has made full preparation.


The schedule of sailing has already been shortened, and officials of archery and softball said they will pay close attention to the route of Koppu and have made plan B.


Reports said Typhoon Koppu has killed at least 11 people in northern Philippines with thousands of others being evacuated.


The National Youth Games is the biggest multi-sport games ever held in Fuzhou, which attracted around 7 puma suede heart reset pas cher ,900 athletes from 55 delegations across the nation competing in 305 events of 26 sports in 10 days.

Amid high expectations to improve soccer's profile in the country, China Sports Media Co Ltd announced on Wednesday the purchase of broadcasting rights for the Chinese Super League, China's top-tier professional soccer league, for 8 billion yuan ($1.26 billion) over the next five years.


The television rights for the 2015 season fetched only 50 million yuan.


Ma Chengquan puma basket heart patent femme blanche pas cher , the chairman of CSL, said the increased revenue will be put into youth training programs, improvement of club facilities and the upgrading of broadcasting technology to improve every aspect of the league.


Aiming to become a world soccer power, China approved a national soccer reform plan in February, setting a goal to qualify for the World Cup again by professionalizing the game's bureaucratic management and promoting youth participation.


The plan followed a national strategy set by the State Council, China's Cabinet puma basket heart patent femme blanche , in October last year to boost the sports industry's gross output to 5 trillion yuan by 2025-almost 16 times the value in 2012.


President Xi Jinping, an avid soccer fan, is determined to improve the sport's level and image on the world stage-a show of interest that has boosted the prosperity of the soccer market and prompted more investment in soccer at the grassroots level.


"It's a historical day. It boosts our confidence to build CSL into one of the top leagues in the world," said Zhang Jian, vice-chairman of the Chinese Football Association.


The CSL will enjoy a huge annual share of 1.6 billion yuan starting next season, more than 30 times the current figure puma basket heart patent blanche , while exceeding the combined media revenue in China of the National Basketball Association, English Premier League and Spanish La Liga.


Li Ruigang, chairman of China Media Capital, the holding equity fund of China Sports Media, was confident about producing profitable results.


"Such a big investment came from our strong confidence in the growth of CSL's value as the elite product of Chinese soccer amid the country's ambition to push the sports industry as well as soccer management reform," Li said at the deal-signing ceremony in Beijing on Wednesday.


The signing will give China Sports Media exclusive rights to produce live signals as well as programs of all the 240 CSL games next season and to distribute them to multiple media outlets.


Li Yidong puma basket heart patent noir pas cher , executive chairman of China Sports Media, shrugged off the notion that the price for the rights was too high, saying that media rights of overseas leagues such as the English Premier League sell for much higher.


"The unbelievable price of EPL's TV rights indicates that we have an untapped potential to grow," he said.


The EPL signed a joint deal with Sky and British Telecom in February for the TV rights over the next three years worth $7.8 billion.


However, Mark Dreyer, a British observer of Chinese sports puma basket heart patent noir , said that the Chinese league is nowhere near the world leader in competitive quality, so a comparison of the two leagues' media revenues is meaningless.


"There is a much more mature market (in Britain) where people pay much money in pay-per-view mode, whereas the Chinese don't. It's definitely improving but still lags far behind," said Dreyer, who runs the blog China Sports Insider.


Despite enjoying the biggest number of fans worldwide, Chinese soccer has been struggling from disappointing international results and a shrinking youth talent pool since its first and only World Cup appearance in 2002.


A national crackdown against gambling and corruption in the game has helped the domestic league regain momentum puma basket heart patent femme noir , highlighted by Guangzhou Evergrande's victory in the 2013AFC Champions League.


Meanwhile, other Chinese media groups are also rushing into the sports rights market. LeTV Sports, the sports arm of China's major online video company LeTV Holdings Co Ltd, also revealed on Wednesday that it has inked a deal with the Asian Football Confederation to acquire full media rights on the mainland for all AFC events, including the Asian Cup and the Champions League, from 2017 to 2019.


LeTV has already purchased the rights to air EPL games exclusively in Hong Kong for a reported $400 million for the next three years.


Liu Jianhong puma basket heart patent femme pas cher , chief content officer of LeTV Sports, said the market value of professional sports has long been underestimated.


"The sports industry will take great leaps forward to bring more commercial benefits," he said.
