Sports Contracts Updates for the Week of June 24th

Updated: Jul 15

While the spotlight this week was on the NHL, who hosted game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals which the Florida Panthers won for the first time in franchise history, and the NBA, who hosted its 78th draft, the NFL made sure it was not forgotten. Two NFL teams are planning monumental stadium renovations - some much needed good news for the league that hopefully can detract a bit of attention from its Sunday Ticket settlement. Investments in the sports industry continue to boom as multiple high-profile individuals expand their investment portfolios.
