Tony Robbins is a pretty good predictor of success, and he has a vision for the evolution of sports. It involves technology as a major part of a new dawn, and himself being a serious player on the financial side.
He enjoys changing the way athletes think about their sports with his regular work as a life coach and, as of late, he has also become consumed by improving the way you watch elite level games and events.
Thanks to his friendship with Golden State Warriors owner Peter Guber, Robbins got involved as an the initial stakeholder of Los Angeles FC, which will become Major League Soccer’s newest team when it begins play next season. The investment group is an all-star cast of business and entertainment heavyweights, including Magic Johnson, sports power couple Mia Hamm and Nomar Garciaparra and Will Ferrell.
“The challenge, just like any business, is going in there and figuring out how do you add more value to the community and how do you create raving fan clients,” Robbins said. “What do you do for the payers and how do you recruit them and bring them on board? Especially when you’re a new franchise like this?”
The organization plans to do things a little differently and boasts that its Banc of California Stadium will be the most high-tech in MLS, from anti-glare roofing to seating steeped for maximum noise retention and rows of charging stations for electronic vehicles.
