    An inside look: How we chose 50 most influential

    Published December 08, 2014

    Poor Adam Silver. After being named the most influential person in sports business by our editorial team in this week’s issue, he can only go down from here. The honeymoon continues for the NBA commissioner, who has made headlines for many of the right reasons since taking over his role just 10 months ago, making him the recipient of a tremendous amount of goodwill among owners, players, commercial partners and the media. When we discussed the makeu...

    Published December 01, 2014

    As the chair of the DeVos Sport Business Management Graduate Program at the University of Central Florida, I call on my colleagues in the field of sports management to help our graduates and alumni focus not only on understanding the business side of sports and building the bottom lines of organizations but also to understand the power of sports to bring about positive social change.

    Can CFP, Taco Bell get fans to Live Más?

    Published December 01, 2014

    The push for the College Football Playoff has garnered all the attention and debate that I thought it would. I believe it’s one of the most progressive and significant decisions of the past decade in sports business and will be a big hit with consumers and the business marketplace. The interest around the weekly selection committee rankings has created a groundswell of momentum that should carry all the way through early January. One of the concerns...

    High-end items offer most promise in sports collectibles market

    Published December 01, 2014

    I think it is a fairly safe bet to say that most of you have, at one time or another, collected some sports memorabilia. Maybe it was baseball cards, souvenir programs, a signed Derek Jeter ball, or even better, a Joe Montana jersey — hopefully, a game-used one. When I was growing up in St. Louis, I took part of my allowance money to buy a pack or two of Topps baseball cards and hope that I got some Cardinals players, such as Ken Boyer, Bob Gibson...

    Space: The next frontier in sports sponsorship?

    Published November 24, 2014

    “Sorry. That table is taken, but I can offer you one on the patio.” This is something we often hear after arriving at a popular restaurant on a jam-packed day when we showed up without a reservation. It’s not what we wanted to learn but might end up giving us a premium we didn’t expect. After hearing the news that Ford has entered into a sponsorship agreement that includes rights to the outdoor space around the Air Canada Centre in the heart of Tor...

    Rebooting World Cup has advantages for NHL

    Published November 24, 2014

    One story worth following is the NHL bringing back a World Cup of Hockey, which follows the big event strategy that the league has successfully executed over the last several years. While details are scarce, think about a multiteam tournament in September 2016, in all likelihood Toronto. Putting on a 16- or 17-game tournament in one city over a couple of weeks takes a lot of league resources, and certainly comes with big risks. But I like its potent...
