About Athletic Interest

We are a small team of creators with a huge passion for sports and business

We first met doing sports at our University in Cologne, Germany. After many passionate debates in the cafetaria about the latest record breaking transfer deal, we decided to bundle our different skills (journalism, business, sports marketing) and start a YouTube channel.

In a (bi-)weekly video essay, we want to fill a void we noticed in the media: a lack of coverage about the influx of money and traditional business concepts into sports.

Why Patreon?
We want to share exciting stories, that engage you from start to end. That’s also why try to limit the use of mid-roll ads during our videos. At the moment, we find it bothering for the viewing experience.

Also, we don’t want to partner with a sponsor that isn’t beneficial to our audience. While we might rely (to some extent) on sponsors sometime in the future, we don’t want to pollute our videos too much with unfitting product placements. 

The caveat of these decisions is that we’re running on a negative for a while now - so your support on Patreon has a fundamental impact on our work.
 
Becoming an Athletic Interest patron means helping spread the channels message and keep us independent. Without your support Athletic Interest would not work. Thank you!
Goals
54 of 100 patrons
Let's build a community! Once we are 100 strong, we will create a space for all of us to connect on discord / reddit and get nerdy about the sports industry.
