Following the success of the Financial Times’ Business of Football Summit in London, we were delighted to bring you the FT's inaugural Business of Sport US Summit, which took place in New York and online.
The Summit -- held in association with Scoreboard, the FT’s weekly briefing on the business of sport -- gathered the most influential leaders in the US sports economy to explore and debate the most lucrative dealmaking opportunities, the reforms and disruptive forces that are driving upheaval across the industry, and the deepening intersection of sport with the US finance, media, technology and consumer sectors.
Combining high-level virtual and in-person discussions, the Summit provided unparalleled access to the conversations that will shape the future of business in the world's most valuable sports leagues.
