Women's World Cup + NBA Free Agency Recap

Jul 09, 04:20 PM
Sports Business Radio host Brian Berger and Executive Producer Bryan Griggs break down the U.S. Women’s National team’s victory at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France. We discuss TV ratings for World Cup, as well as strategies for women’s pro soccer to keep the World Cup momentum going. We also tell you which companies have signed on to be sponsors since the USWNT claimed the title and how the women can gain equal pay. 

We discuss the landscape changing moves made in the NBA this week including Kawhi Leonard’s move from the Toronto Raptors to the Los Angeles Clippers and the mega trade that saw Paul George go from the Oklahoma City Thunder to join Leonard on the Clippers. The battle for LA will be more hotly contested than ever. What does this trade mean for the future of Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook and where might he be traded to? And we debate who will have the highest selling NBA jersey next season with Kevin Durant and LeBron James switching numbers and several other NBA superstars joining new teams.

Does the MLB All-Star game matter and might the NFL and NFLPA reach a deal on a new collective bargaining agreement before the start of the 2019 season? We discuss on this week’s edition of Sports Business Radio.

And we announce where our 2nd Sports Business Radio Road Show presented by Boingo of 2019 will take place.
