With the rise of social media, athlete influencers have become some of the most popular figures on the internet. And while they may make it look easy, running an Instagram giveaway with the athletes can be a bit of a challenge. Here are five things you need to know before you get started:
The Denver Broncos were purchased this past week by Rob Walton, one of the family owners of Walmart for a staggering $4.65 billion. The purchase is the highest sale of an American professional team, and makes Rob Walton the richest owner in the NFL. The sale of the Broncos is a significant boost for the valuations of NFL teams. The last NFL record sale of a team was in 2018 by the Carolina Panthers for a then record $2.275 billion. This indicates that the NFL as a league is bound to rise much higher in terms of valuation, and also give a major boost to the valuation of 31 other teams in the league. This would allow teams like the Dallas Cowboys who were valued last year at $6.5 billion to see a larger hike in valuation along with other large market NFL franchises.

With a hefty spending budget for advertisements and partnerships, gambling companies are making the next big push for big money into all areas of the sports world.
