Are you not entertained?
Episode: 14, Season 2
Hosts: Roger Mitchell - Grant Williams - Giles Morgan
Guest/s: Ian Ritchie
Today, much of what sport has always meant to true fans, has been lost in a blizzard of corporate communications, fireworks and froth. As a result, the attachments, that were once so strong, seem more trivial in the global age of televised sport as entertainment. What was once authentic, is increasingly staged. In this podcast, we’ll get back to the things that sport has always meant to true fans.
Season 2, Episode 14: The boys host the legendary multi sports administrator Ian Ritchie. It is indeed a forthright discussion on various top management issues: the Damned United, West Ham, Wimbledon, Rugby. Focussing, along the way, on salary caps, media/fan balance private equity, introducing tech, whilst protecting tradition. And recruiting top people. Wonderful insight from a top top operator.
