Sports Value Consulting, LLC is the leading valuation and advisory firm for the professional sports industry. Driven by the desire to move from the theoretical world to reality of how teams transact, Mr. Rapkoch formed SVC in 2003.
This industry is not valued based on the average price to revenue multiple of prior teams. It is a forward looking, deep understanding of the tangible and intangible factors related to teams. One does not simply look to the corporations to suite ratios, or local demographics when comparing one city to the next. SVC’s experience and staff of former operators provides an understanding of each market and how the challenges it may have.
