ABOUT US

Aggregate Sports was founded with the principle belief that the sum is greater than its parts. That strategically assembled assets yield the strongest returns. That properties and brands receive maximum value when the totality of an opportunity is illuminated.

We work on behalf of a variety of best-in-class sports properties, leagues, teams and federations in helping them to maximize their revenue while creating the greatest experience for their fans and supporters.

From Property Sales to Property Consulting, from Media Rights to Naming Rights, our underlying approach remains the same. We strive to aggregate the most impactful resources in order to deliver the most impactful results.

CAPABILITIES

Property Sales and Marketing

We take a consultative approach in how we sell and position our properties, first listening to our clients’ needs, then aggregating the most meaningful assets in order to best connect their message with target consumers. We also aggregate offerings for brands across our properties for ultimate ease of use and scale. Collectively, our 30+ years of delivering meaningful strategy and revenue for sports properties sets us apart from all others in the space.

Property Consulting

We advise properties on how to best leverage the entirety of their portfolio. Whether it be strategic guidance on how to best package partnership elements, advice on how to most effectively monetize their social media reach, or counsel on the development of hospitality packages, our knowledge and understanding of the challenges and opportunities properties face is second to none.

Naming Rights and Venue Monetization

We provide strategic guidance and sales support for teams looking to more effectively tap into potential revenue streams at their stadiums. From helping to secure naming rights partners to advising clubs on in-venue signage placements, we collaborate with teams to ensure they are effectively aggregating their stadium inventory and maximizing revenue.

Media Rights

We advise sports media rights holders on how to best develop, monetize and distribute their media content. In a rapidly evolving media marketplace, teams, leagues and federations have more ways to connect with fans than ever before. Effectively exploiting all available platforms is crucial to an organization’s success. We can help.
