Hungry For A Deal?
While the trend of reasonably priced concessions is gaining significant traction at popular US sport & entertainment venues, including in Atlanta where the Mercedes-Benz stadium saw total concession spend INCREASE by 16% when they lowered prices. Canadian venues are slow on the uptake - what’s the deal with no deals?
Tiger vs. Phil
Capital One is titling the highly anticipated exhibition known as ’The Match’. Tiger vs Phil on November 23rd. Will this 1v1, pay-per-view event mark a watershed moment for how fans consume golf or will it be a forgotten exhibition 10 years too late to matter? The HBO 24/7 series is certainly doing its part to generate the hype!
MLB Extends With Fox Sports
The announcement of a media rights extension at a 39% increase in annual dollar value (up to $728.6M from $525M) make the demise of linear television seem greatly exaggerated. This is not to mention that the deal was struck with 3 years left on the current deal. Long live the golden goose of live sports!

North American audiences continue to be warm up to professional soccer!
