Exploring the World of Sports Finance: A Conversation with Mike Mondello

Mike interviews Mike Mondello.

We just talked about his latest book, Sport Finance, with the author, Mike Mondello. Strap in because I’m about to give you the lowdown on all the juicy insights we covered in this episode.


When you think about sports, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Touchdowns? Slam dunks? Well, how about dollars and cents? Behind every epic game-winning shot or jaw-dropping touchdown, a whole world of finance is at play. And who better to break it down for us than the expert, Mike Mondello?

In our conversation, Mike delved into the nitty-gritty of sports finance, shedding light on everything from the revenue streams of professional sports teams to the importance of understanding assets and liabilities. We talked about how leagues like the NFL and NHL operate, how they generate revenue and the role that factors like ticket sales, merchandise, and broadcasting rights play in their financial success.

One thing that really stood out to me was Mike’s discussion on the evolution of sports leagues and the impact of competition on improving the product for fans. We talked about how leagues like the English Premier League have embraced concepts like promotion and relegation, creating a dynamic and competitive environment that keeps fans on the edge of their seats.

But it wasn’t all about the big leagues. Mike also shared some fascinating insights into creative financing strategies sports teams use, from depreciating player contracts to the importance of contract length in maximizing player productivity. Learning how teams navigate the delicate balance between short-term success and long-term sustainability was eye-opening.

Of course, we couldn’t talk about sports finance without touching on the hot topic of cryptocurrency. Mike shared his thoughts on the rise of crypto in the sports world, offering valuable insights into the risks and opportunities associated with this emerging asset class.

However, perhaps the most valuable takeaway from our conversation was the importance of adapting your investment strategy over time. As Mike pointed out, your approach to wealth creation should change as you age, considering factors like risk tolerance, liquidity, and long-term financial goals. It’s all about playing the long game and making intelligent, strategic decisions that set you up for success in the years to come.
