Eben Novy-Williams and Michael Barr discuss a number of topics related to the business of sports, including the addition of esports to this year’s Asian Games. Competitive video gaming, which is exploding in popularity among younger consumers, will be a demonstration sport in Jakarta later this month, and is under consideration for inclusion in the Olympics. Also discussed are the University of Alabama’s plan to invest $600 million into its athletic facilities over the next 10 years, and the Pawtucket Red Sox’s stadium shuffle, which will have the minor league baseball team moving to Worchester, Massachusetts.
