Dan Migala works with plenty of sports teams in his role with Property Consulting Group so why is a US sports business guy talking about cricket?  Dan helped Cricket Australia develop Big Bash League as a new sports entertainment option for sports fans.  Also on this week's podcast Sean chats with Christine Stoffel from SEAT who has been in Melbourne for a busy week of brainstorming and networking.

  • Why Cricket Australia wanted to develop Big Bash League
  • How Dan approached the Australia sports scene
  • The importance to providing a family atmosphere at Big Bash games
  • What Dan has learned over 4 years of Big Bash
  • Why seagulls are tough in Australia
  • Christine's take on Melbourne Sports Business scene
  • Why Christine was blown away by attendees at #SportsBizMelb
  • What we learned about ticket sales at another sold out Asian Cup
