Live from The Global Boardroom: How is COVID transforming the business of sports?

Moderated by Murad Ahmed, Sports Editor, Financial Times
The pandemic has brought the sports ecosystem to a standstill, halting live game attendance and impacting the return of sponsorship and broadcasting deals.
With the disruption to the traditional revenue streams that the sports economy was built on, and changing patterns of consumption impacting media rights, new business models will be needed in order to lead non-traditional growth.
In an industry underpinned by this combination of ticket sales, sponsorships, broadcasting rights, and stadium revenues, what will define and drive the value of club ownership going forward? How will the value of sports assets be adjusted and how could this affect the flow of capital in the sporting world? Will we see an increase in M&A activity as clubs and leagues are put under financial pressure while weathering the storm and adjusting their businesses to the new ways in which sport is played and consumed?
Enjoy the session ❤️
