Vegas Golden Knights part owner Joe Maloof discusses a host of issues related to the business of sports, including his National Hockey League expansion team’s unlikely run to the NHL Finals against the Washington Capitals. He also talks about what’s driving franchise valuations in professional sports, and he touches on his team’s approach to in-arena entertainment. Maloof also discusses what effect it’ll have on business when the NFL’s Raiders relocate to Vegas. He also touches on legalized sports betting, and the probability of another expansion team in Seattle, and how hangovers factor into what’s next for the Maloof family.
Maloof is an investor in the Golden Knights, who are controlled by Bill Foley. The Maloof family previously owned the NBA’s Sacramento Kings, who were sold to a group headed by Vivek Ranadive.
