What We Do

Consulting & Leadership Focus 

CLUB 9’s principals are former C-level executives in the sports and entertainment industry, who provide unique perspective and value. CLUB 9 focuses on under performing and undervalued opportunities that can be improved by a hands-on approach of providing strategic operational counsel and leadership. CLUB 9 looks for opportunities to apply its expertise in sales and marketing to increase the key drivers of revenue for its clients’ properties in combination with its disciplined approach to expense management and performance metrics.

Advisory Services

The operational and financial expertise CLUB 9 provides to its consulting clients is also available to third parties or to sports, media and venue companies through its advisory practice. The firm provides sophisticated and comprehensive advisory and transaction execution services to owners, investors and lenders. Our principals have demonstrated track records of success in executive and operational management, startup ventures, corporate restructurings, mergers & acquisitions, complex financial analysis and corporate finance. CLUB 9 SPORTS has access to investment funds, private individuals, institutional banks and equity/debt sources it can call on to develop successful structures to meet the unique needs of each transaction.

CLUB 9 SPORTS has global relationships with professional firms who can be called upon to provide expert legal, accounting or tax consultation as needed.

Client engagements are typically comprised of a combination of the following services: 

  • Restructuring Advisory Services (financial and operational)
  • Mergers, Acquisitions and Divesture Advisory Services
  • Debt and Equity Placement Services
  • Situational Analysis and Recommendation
  • Interim Management

How We Do It

Capital Markets

The two keys to a successful transaction are:  

  1. Access to capital
  2. Transaction management expertise


The professionals at CLUB 9 SPORTS have deep relationships with capital providers to sports, media and venue companies and have closed hundreds of transactions.  We use these relationships and skills to provide a variety of services to our clients including:

  • Debt Recapitalizations
  • Management and/or Leveraged Buyouts
  • Public to Private Buyouts
  • Debt Restructures/Refinancings
  • Growth Capital Raises
  • Private Equity Placements (minority and control positions)
  • Tax-Advantaged and Hybrid Capital Structures  

Interim Management 

CLUB 9 professionals periodically act as interim executives of client companies, typically concurrent with a financial restructuring engagement or with a sales & marketing challenge that can’t be met by the client’s internal staff. Given the backgrounds of CLUB 9 professionals as former CEOs, COOs, CFOs in successful enterprises, they are able to bring sophisticated management expertise and capability to companies with a short-term need or in a transitional state.
