The Sport Business Handbook was originally released at a joint Harvard Law/Harvard Business meeting two years ago, and was heralded as the most unique collection of commentary and advice from industry leaders in the $1.3 trillion business of sports. Within three months, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, and sports, as we knew it, shut its doors. As we continue in the “Great Comeback,” Rick took the opportunity of soliciting contributions, advice, and guidance from approximately 20 other business leaders who have provided unique post-pandemic insight to complement and reinforce the 28 chapters (and 109 contributions) from the original book.

The revised edition now includes a “Breakthrough Moments” list of 50 of the most significant sports-related moments that changed the industry. These will be part of the panel discussion on trends with Foley attorneys Bobby Sharma (also a book contributor) and Andy Lee, and StaksPay Founder Scott Pranger, who will also announce the details of a “Breakthrough Moments” NFT series at the event.

SportsGrid Television and Radio Network reaches over 150 million fans over the air, broadcast, cable television, connected Smart TVs, streaming OTT platforms, mobile devices, and streaming live on the web. Vice President of Operations Mike Cardano (a book contributor) will provide the technical expertise to produce and develop sustaining content from the event.

We look forward to introducing you in person to the author of, and the contributors to, the revised and expanded second edition of The Sports Business Handbook.
