AYNE 519 - The Groundsmen
The groundsmen discuss the themes from Sport Summit Como, and in particular how the intense volatility in the finance markets will affect sport.
AYNE 518 - Lucas von Cranach
The Groundsmen dedicate this week to really getting under the hood of OneFootball and its founder Lucas von Cranach. This company is too big to be misunderstood. Hopefully we've shed some light. Brought to you by Sportsdigita.
AYNE 517 - Theo Westerman
The Groundsmen are joined by Theo Westerman - owner of the winning horse at the 2022 Palio di Siena - one of the world's oldest sporting events. This was a remarkable achievement on so many levels. Theo is only 25. There has only ever been one foreign owner of the race. Most impressively, his horse, Violenta Da Clodia, recorded the fastest time in history. Theo shares the history of this most special of sporting events and his own personal journey culminating in victory on 17th August. Brought to you by Sportsdigita.

Entertained we are
Always thoughtful, always entertaining. This is a great podcast if you are interested in sport and the business of sport, with high quality guests who provide unique insights into what sport has been, what it is today and what it might look like in the future. But it mostly works because of Grant, Roger and Giles, whose love of sport shines through.
Good podcast but…
It’s been called the Premier League for over a decade. Roger calling it the “Premiership” is driving me mad!
I heard the castle towers whisper...
Found the pod via Duncan's/Ian's podcast. Very new way of looking at sport, whilst i struggle to listen/focus - it was clear that you all had a deep knowledge and passion for what was being discussed. I wouldn't pass the 45 minute acid test, but would definitely listen!
