MADRID Bradley Chubb Limited Jersey , Feb. 12 (Xinhua) -- The Spanish Football League (LFP) has announced that the number of people attending football games in the first and second divisions (Liga BBVA and Liga Adelante) has risen by 3.03 percent this season.

After last weekend' s matches in Spain, the LFP announced that a total of 7,615,374 people have passed through the turnstiles of Spain' s 2' Primera Liga and 22 Liga Adelante Clubs.

That is 223,681 more than at the same stage last season when a total of 7,391 Women's Jeff Heuerman Jersey ,693 fans had gone to watch matches in person, but slightly below the figure of the 2011-12 season when 7,642,588 supporters had taken seats in their respective grounds.

However, the news may be slightly misleading, given that attendances have actually fallen in the BBVA Primera Liga Women's Shane Ray Jersey , where there has been a fall of 0.47 percent in the number of spectators.

That means it is the Liga Adelante which has seen the increased number of fans. This can in part be put down to the fact that this season saw important clubs such as Tenerife and Deportivo Alaves return to the second division from the third tier, while the relegation of Deportivo la Coruna and Zaragoza down from the Primera Liga also means the fanbase in the second tier is bigger than a season ago.

Supporters in Spain are unhappy about the fact that television means that games can be played across a range of times from 20:30 on a Friday night to 22:00 hours on a Monday night.

The Monday kick-off is especially unpopular with fans as it means they don' t leave the ground until midnight with the prospect of having to work early the following morning and at a time where the metro in some cities is on the point of closing for the night.

The problem of attendances at 22:00 kick offs was made clear in the last two rounds of the Copa del Rey when FC Barcelona attracted 24,000 and 38,000 fans for their quarter and semi-final home matches, playing the two games in an unusually sterile atmosphere.

Meanwhile Madrid based club Getafe habitually play in front of crowds of around 4,000 fans or less.

NANCHANG Women's Adam Gotsis Jersey , Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- During his first visit to Shanxi, a 1,000-year-old town in Jiangxi Province known for porcelain-making, Eric Kaplan from the United Kingdom received a blue and white plate bearing his family's insignia.

He received the gift at the ongoing 2015 China Jingdezhen International Ceramic Fair. Bearing the serial number 001, it is one of five newly fired porcelain plates that imitate pieces originally manufactured by Jingdezhen craftsmen some 600 years ago for European aristocrats.

Having grown up with a lot of fine china in his home, the descendant of a noble family in Leicestershire said it felt amazing to obtain something similar to a piece collected by his ancestors.

"We appreciate this art very much Women's Women's Paxton Lynch Jersey , and I am extremely honored to be here and very thankful," said Kaplan.

Master pottery maker Huang Yunpeng, who presented the plate to Kaplan as a gift, has collected more than 300 antique ceramics tailor-made by local craftsmen for special clients in Europe, including aristocrats, high-ranking officials Women's Case Keenum Jersey , wealthy merchants and social organizations.

His son, Huang Bin, president of the Jingdezhen Imperial Kiln Company, said he hopes these antique porcelain pieces can attract people to revisit Jingdezhen's ties to the British nobility and boost the town's handmade porcelain industry.


Hu Yinjiao, a resident of Jingdezhen, takes pride in the town's history as a royal porcelain supplier Women's Justin Simmons Jersey , not just for Chinese emperors but also European royals and nobility.

In the late Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), Jingdezhen was not only the home of imperial kilns dedicated to Chinese emperors, but also saw strong exports in porcelain. It is estimated that some 100 million pieces of china were sold to Europe from the 16th to the 18th century.

"In overseas museums, quite a number of exquisite porcelain antiques for European royals and aristocrats were made in Jingdezhen. To understand how famous the city is, just look at the mark below each antique. Oftentimes, I've found it mentioned just the city -- adding the country was seemingly unnecessary Women's Jake Butt Jersey ," said Hu.

"When browsing armorial porcelain antiques in overseas museums, I do feel the town's strong connection with the royalty there," said Hu.

In Exhibition Hall A at the ceramics fair in Jingdezhen, Chinese swarmed the stands of royal suppliers to appreciate the designs.

Moorcroft, an 118-year-old brand based in Stoke-on-Trent of Staffordshire in England and an appointed "potter to H.M. The Queen" until 1978, is one of the most popular ceramics makers at the expo.

Head of Sales Gina McNicholas said that Moorcroft's heritage as a supplier to the Queen and royal families helps its sales in China.

"We've found our traditional English products have sold better than anything in China. It's very regal and royal. I think people buy into that idea Women's Chad Kelly Jersey ," said McNicholas.

Moorcroft has hired a Hong Kong agent to deal in exports to China. The brand has a history of working with overseas markets to establish new designs, so designers can influence one another and come up with new ideas about how things will sell in each market.

McNicholas told Xinhua that the company will also look to cooperate with ceramics makers in Jingdezhen. "It's about working together to share ideas and best practices and boost the UK and Chinese brands as well," she said.


However, master porcelain artist Duan Zhenmin said restoring the city's past glory in the ceramics market faces a major challenge because it lacks famous international brands.

"You can't find a Chinese name on the list of the world's top luxury ceramic brands. Jingdezhen is only a place of origin shared by local pottery makers," said Duan, who founded the Jiuduanshao Ceramic.
