Helping investors and sports bodies carefully consider and identify the right growth opportunities.
Partnerships between investors and sports bodies can be a catalyst for professionalization and accelerated growth. However, any investment requires careful consideration, and both parties need to be well-informed to navigate the complexities both to complete a deal and to successfully execute it.
We have worked with a wide variety of stakeholders on both the buy- and sell-side; from supporting National Governing Bodies in industry-shaping decisions related to third-party funding, to identifying and unlocking the significant growth potential of specific sports properties for private investment groups.
As industry experts with over 15 years of experience, our work in the investment space is built on a comprehensive understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing sports organisations, and the steps required by both the investor and sport to drive real change.
Our work typically centres around the following services:
Market assessment and deal generation
We identify and analyse potential targets for investors aligned to their philosophy and objectives, leveraging our years of experience working across different sports internationally to develop a robust investment thesis.
Commercial due diligence
We help investors to understand the full potential of their targets by performing comprehensive industry commercial due diligence on the opportunities and challenges facing different sports properties, enabling investors to make more informed decisions pre- and post-acquisition.
Post-close value creation
We work hand-in-hand with management teams to identify, plan and deliver real benefits after a deal, developing long-term strategies and short-term implementation plans that align behind key priorities and focused initiatives.
Investor sector strategies
We work with private equity and investment firms to develop bespoke strategies for their sports portfolio, creating a clear philosophy and set of investment criteria that maximises the value of, and harnesses synergies across their current and future portfolio.
We advise a wide range of clients across the industry on the sale of their asset, harnessing our experience and global network to ensure it is appropriately positioned in the market and that the sale proceeds are maximised.
