IT and software firm Globant (NYSE:GLOB) and LaLiga Tech - the tech subsidiary of sports league LaLiga - have joined to collaborate with Microsoft (NasdaqGS:MSFT) "on a series of initiatives with the goal of fostering the transformation of sports in various domains through the utilization of Artificial Intelligence." This will include Near Real Time (NRT) automatic generation of multilingual subtitle for live sports matches, automatic translation of sports content, the provision of real-time metrics to each team's head coach and their assistants, and more. Agustin Huerta, SVP of Technology of Globant, commented:

"For a decade, artificial intelligence and data have been an integral part of Globant's vision, being applied transversally to all areas of the company, from talent circuits to operational models, to deploy solutions to increase productivity and efficiency. With this joint venture with LaLiga, we are working to extend our capabilities to LaLiga Tech with the support of a big partner such as Microsoft, and the first tests have proven to be disruptive and successful."

DICK's Sporting Goods (NYSE:DKS) has announced the continued expansion of its House of Sport brand with nine new locations celebrating their grand openings in July and August. The House of Sport outlet is "an approximately 100,000+ square foot store that provides customers with an incredible assortment of products along with in-store experiences," and launches with an activity-filled weekend for the grand opening. Toni Roeller, senior vice president, In-store Environment, Visual Merchandising and House of Sport, explained:

"These grand openings have been a superb way to introduce the House of Sport store to our customers in these markets. It's exciting that the feedback from customers has been so positive and the communities see the stores as a destination. We're equally excited about bringing House of Sport to more communities in 2024 and beyond."

England to Face Spain in FIFA Women's World Cup Final on Sunday, and Washington Commanders Announce Sam Howell as Starting Quarterback

The FIFA Women's World Cup is about to see its first all-European final since 2003, with Spain and England competing for the title in Sydney, Australia this Sunday. An England victory would be the first time that the World Cup trophy returned to the birthplace of the sport since 1966, when the men's team beat West Germany 4-2. The Associated Press quotes England coach Sarina Wiegman, who said:

"Every step has been really, really hard. But again, we find a way. And I think the opponents, the women's game has grown so much that it's really hard to get through. So I know it's very, very special and that's how it feels, too."

ESPN reports that in the NFL, the Washington Commanders have named Sam Howell as their starting quarterback. Fellow quarterback Jacoby Brisset was also in the running for the position. The team's head coach, Ron Rivera, who made the announcement today, said:

"This was about what Sam did. Jacoby has been a true pro and done everything asked, and he's also helped mentor Sam. He's a more than viable quarterback. But there were certain things Sam had to show us, and everybody knew from my perspective it was Sam's to lose, and he did nothing to lose it."
