In conversation with the owner of the Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Devils and Crystal Palace F.C.

Leaders Founder and Chair Jimmy Worrall in conversation with the billionaire that has ownership interests across the NBA, NHL and Premier League. 

One Careful Owner is a new series from the Leaders Sport Business Podcast that features exclusive conversations with the people who invest billions into teams. Who have a unique handle on where the industry is going. On media rights. On globalisation. On asset creation. On trading players. On the risks, rewards and the pitfalls. On the pressures and demands. The unique challenges and often downright weird situations that only sports owners have experienced. And all while they’re doing their day job. 

Our latest guest is Josh Harris, the Co-Founder of Apollo Global Management, one of the world’s largest alternative investment firms. He is also one half of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, which owns the New Jersey Devils, the Philadelphia 76ers, the Prudential Center, the Dignitas esports team and has a stake in Elevate Sports Ventures, which provides venue, ticketing and hospitality solutions across the industry. 

In a keynote conversation conducted live as part of October’s Leaders Week London, Josh discusses his ownership philosophy, the differences between owning US and UK teams and where he sees brilliant investment potential. He also shares his perspective on the European Super League, the impact Covid has on team owners, changing consumption habits and paints a picture of what it’s really like in the room when team owners get together.  


Our next sport business conference, Leaders Meet: Qatar 2022, takes place on 28 – 29 November (later this month) and will see global sports industry decision-makers connect, share insight and do business with international sponsors, clubs, leagues and broadcasters involved or investing in Qatar.
