In May, the U.S. Supreme Court gave sports gaming rights to all 50 states and a new $250–400 billion dollar industry was born.
Now, sports fans across all leagues, ages and demographics are paying attention. Our show gives fans behind-the-scenes access to the dealmakers, athletes and entrepreneurs that are building this new industry.
Much like Showtime’s The Circus, Well Played will be a constant, investigative, up-to-the-minute show.
Our hosts Ryan Howard (World Series Champion and Venture Capitalist), Cynthia Frelund (NFL Network) and Wayne Kimmel (Sports Tech Venture Capitalist) are in the center of this new “Gold Rush” – leading viewers to a life Well Played.
Ryan Howard is a World Series Champion, venture capitalist and Partner at SeventySix Capital.
Ryan was the MLB 2005 Rookie of the Year, the 2006 NL MVP, a 2008 World Series Champion with the Philadelphia Phillies, and the fastest player to reach both the 100 & 200 home run milestones in MLB history.
He has unmatched access to the athletes, professional team owners, entrepreneurs and executives who are making deals in the sports betting industry.
He’ll get the inside story on how top athletes are feeling about the pressures of this new industry, having relatability as an active player during the start of fantasy leagues.
Cynthia Frelund is NFL Media's first analytics expert.
She appears across all NFL Network platforms, including Fantasy Live and GameDay Morning, providing statistical and advanced analytics insight.
