The sport industry has been forced to tackle seismic disruption as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the shutdown of sporting venues causing considerable damage to revenue streams.

Finance in sport was already changing rapidly pre-coronavirus. This will continue to evolve with an increased focus on private equity investments shifting the way clubs and events are managed. Those organisations flexible enough to adapt to the evolving market will be in the best position to succeed.
