Accounting and financial reporting implications
The US sports betting landscape
Join Consumer Speaks host Rich Paul, Deloitte’s Audit & Assurance Consumer industry leader, as he and Jeff Ortwein, Deloitte’s Audit & Assurance Gaming sector leader, discuss the impact of recent sports betting legislation and the current regulatory environment, including the implications for accounting and financial reporting. They’ll explore how states are approaching sports betting through technology platforms and licensing, as well as the impact on creating new ventures or partnerships in a highly regulated industry.
Online sports betting has turned out to be wildly successful.
How legalization impacts sports betting economics
Americans place $50 billion to $60 billion a year in illegal sports bets, dwarfing the legal $5 billion in Nevada sports betting. This represents a potentially enormous market now that states can decide whether to legalize sports gambling. Although exciting, uncertainties remain that will impact industry size, scale, and opportunity moving forward.
2021 sports industry outlook
In 2020, two game-changing shifts affected the US sports industry: the COVID-19 pandemic and the social justice movement. According to US sports leader Pete Giorgio, sports organizations can position themselves to thrive in 2021 by addressing key opportunities, from fan engagement to advanced technology to the role of sports in society.
