In our latest forum event, we will look at the commercial, legal and performance dynamics in developing these new sports properties, the key ingredients of success and whether entertainment now trumps performance in the modern sports landscape.

With decreasing viewer figures in almost all traditional sports, the battle is truly on for the attention of and connection with new and younger audiences. With this, we have seen new sports platforms being developed by insurgent players which are disrupting the traditional sports models. Equally, we are seeing incumbent players developing new and innovative formats for their own sports.

The Panel
We are excited to be joined by our confirmed panelists:

Niall Treacy: Head of Commercial Strategy and Sales at Formula E
Carsten Thode: Chief Strategy Officer at brand-facing agency Synergy
Chris Spice: Performance Director for British Swimming
