In a special but very quick interview Sean catches up with Melbourne United's Vince Crivelli on the rebrand of Tigers to United.  Gary Vanyerchuk makes a quick appearance thanks to his excellent #AskGaryVee Podcast, listen in for Sean's take on it.

On this Sports Geek Podcast you will learn:

  • Why Melbourne United rebrand happened
  • What steps Vince took to reach new fans
  • The importance of reaching out to participants
  • How does it feel as a former Tigers fan to see United play
  • Why 1>0 has been important to Sean in building Sports Geek
