An Israeli startup is going to wreak havoc with their MVP: a mobile ad blocker. Sure, this has been around for a while, but this particular startup has some serious backing (think: major mobile carriers). Why are they doing this?

Some stadiums were built in bizarre locations (some areas have no local soccer teams!) and stadiums that do host domestic games are contested regularly by the teams and the people running the stadiums. Most, if all of the revenue pulled in by soccer teams go to repaying construction costs. Isn’t that just a little bit crazy?
