Investing, Representation and M&A in Sport
Athletic Ventures does not own any Professional Sports Teams or leagues, but we work very closely with many of the top organizations throughout North America for M&A and SPAC acquisitions.
Regardless of the sport, we have developed relationships directly with league offices, officials and brokers to facilitate the purchase, investment or expansion of professional teams in multiple sports. As the landscape of professional sports grows, the opportunities for investment from 5 to 9 figure involvement has grown in recent years.
We pride ourselves in actively seeking, aggressively researching and relentlessly pursing opportunities in sports. With professional sports growing at ever-impressive rates and the introduction of eSports and new ventures we are excited and involved in ever step of the process.
Name your sport and we will find the opportunity to invest. If you are very specific about your team we can facilitate the conversation.
We have experience and a vast network of partners representing professional athletes – If you are an athlete looking to negotiate with international teams or business development/sponsorship opportunities in countries/leagues personalized to take you where you want to go. Please contact us for the best options and representation available based on your sports and intentions.
Whether you are a brand, club or professional league, Athletic Venture Advisors is accomplished in and well connected to groups who are well versed in researching, negotiating and implementing partnerships across the world.
The innovation in sports is impressive, yet it is often segmented to local markets. Though our relationships, our goal is to ensure that cutting-edge products reach their full market potential. Do you have a product, app, or concept that is truly worthy of global attention? Our team is ready to ensure that you get the opportunities you deserve to make your business grow.
LEAGUE / CLUB BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
More than ever, fans in countries around the world are holding allegiances to teams and leagues from other countries, and the business opportunities tied to this are usually untapped. Athletic Venture Advisors and our partners are accomplished in representing sponsorship, digital and media rights in global markets and would be pleased to discuss with you how we can make your brand truly global.
The Athletic Venture Advisors team helped us build out some important partners for our long term business development. Their introductions to major players in the US Venture Capital space lead us to rethink our raise and were able to land a Series A investment rather than take a bridge round. We look forward to continuing to work with Marc and his team as we grow.
