Palm Beach, FL – June 6, 2023 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Hundred of millions of people around the globe watch professional sports for fun, but can they also make money from it? Most people may think that the only way to generate profit from sports is through sports betting channels. The sorry reality for these methods is, the odds are stacked against you – the vast majority of sports betters end up with less money than they started. According to some, only 3-5% of sports betters are profitable in the long run. A perhaps lesser-known way of investing in sports teams is buying equity in the team if it is publicly traded on a stock market. Like any other stock, if the share price goes up in value, you can generate a positive return and vice versa. A report from 90MIN.com discussed Investing in Sports Stocks. The article said: “The reason a sports team would want to sell shares to the public is the same reason any other company would – to raise money. When a team lists its shares through an IPO (initial public offering), investors pay money up front for those shares which go directly to the sports team. In return, investors receive partial ownership of the team and can sell it at any time to another investor who wishes to buy that share. A team may wish to expand its stadium, acquire an all-star player, or raise salaries for staff. All these wonderful things cost money, and one avenue to generate a lot of cash is by selling shares of the team to the public. Active companies in the markets this week include: Brera Holdings PLC (NASDAQ: BREA), Manchester United (NYSE: MANU), Paramount Global (NASDAQ: PARA), WWE® (NYSE: WWE), DraftKings Inc. (NASDAQ: DKNG).
90MIN.com continued: “For example, back in 2012 Soccer team Manchester United began trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and successfully raised $233 Million, which was used to pay off some of the team’s $680 million in debt. The initial share price was $14 and approximately 16.6 million shares were issued. Sports stocks can be an excellent way to diversify your portfolio. Having a diverse portfolio lowers the total risk of that portfolio, so if your investment portfolio lacks diversity, this type of investment may be for you. That said, investing in sports stocks is like investing in any other type of stock – by combining your own research with available analyst recommendations you may generate a positive return on your investment. Before investing in any security, it is important to do your own research beforehand.”
Brera Holdings PLC (NASDAQ: BREA) BREAKING NEWS: Brera Holdings PLC Acquires Strategic Stake in Manchester United PLC – Nasdaq-listed BREA Plans to Meet NYSE-listed MANU to Discuss Brera’s ‘Social Impact Football’ Business Model and Other Value-Building Strategies – Brera Holdings PLC (“Brera Holdings” or the “Company”) today announced that it has made a strategic investment in Manchester United PLC (NYSE: MANU) (“MANU”) and invited the MANU board to a briefing on Brera’s innovative “Social Impact Football” business model and other value-building strategies. Although MANU’s market capitalization on the New York Stock Exchange is approximately $3 billion, according to the Financial Times, the price range for a pending sale of MANU, the holding company of Manchester United Football Club (“United”), could exceed $6 billion.
“We believe that our strategic investment in MANU at this time has potential for value creation and eventual realization, and we look forward to briefing their board on ways to achieve that,” said Brera Holdings CEO, Sergio Scalpelli. “As owners of ‘The Third Team of Milan’ Brera FC, we have seen how an innovative business model, our Nasdaq IPO, and a social impact focus can not only capture attention but also lead to international expansion, diversification, and growth opportunities,” Scalpelli continued.
Beginning last week, BREA began acquiring MANU shares through open market purchases, which now exceed $100,000, according to Brera Holdings Executive Chairman, Dan McClory. BREA intends to provide updates on its strategic stake in MANU, including United’s performance and its owner’s sale process.
While United recently finished its English Premier League season in third place to qualify once again for the Champions League, Brera Holdings announced that Brera FC had advanced to the FENIX Trophy semifinals being held this week in Milan. BBC Sport called the FENIX Trophy tournament the “Champions League for Amateurs” in its coverage of the tournament last year.

For the three months ended March 31, 2023, DraftKings reported revenue of $770 million, an increase of 84% compared to $417 million during the same period in 2022 driven primarily by efficient acquisition of new customers, product innovation driving higher hold percentage, decreased promotional intensity in more mature states, and continued healthy customer retention.
“DraftKings’ first quarter performance – 84% year-over-year revenue growth and share gains underpinned by a relentless focus on operational efficiency – demonstrates that this is a company positioned for sustained success,” said Jason Robins, DraftKings’ Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder. “We delivered highly successful online sportsbook launches in Ohio and our home state of Massachusetts and continued to create meaningful product differentiation driven by in-house innovations. We acquired customers faster and more efficiently and, importantly, saw healthy retention across cohorts. Looking at the remainder of 2023, I am confident DraftKings is well-positioned to achieve profitability on an Adjusted EBITDA basis in the near-term and deliver long-term value for our shareholders.”
