Digital Lounge: How Digital is Hamburg's Sports Business?

Ralf Leister, operator of "FussballWirtschaft", Germany's most influential football business blog, talks to leading representatives of the Hamburg sports industry about the innovative power of sport.

Ralf Leister

Hamburg has always been a sports city. In recent years, however, the city's major clubs have faced a variety of challenges. Some did not survive the hard years. And it is not only professional sport that is struggling with a changing market environment; popular sport, especially football, also has to constantly create new scope for itself.

The next HSBA Digital Lounge will focus on the innovative power of Hamburg sports. Ralf Leister will discuss this with high-ranking representatives of major Hamburg sports organisations. He will give an insight into the innovative power of sport and will deal with best practices and obstacles in sports organisations. He also impressively shows what other industries can learn from sport and what sport still has to learn itself.

We cordially invite you to the Digital Lounge and ask you to note down the following information for discussion:
