We believe this year-over-year momentum will continue into the fourth quarter, mainly due to the significantly reduced recurring revenue base and as more sponsorship partners recognize the value of our team franchise model and additional revenue from league shares. “

“Looking into the fourth quarter, we believe our healthy balance sheet will allow us to pursue a multifaceted growth strategy, including potential acquisitions to expand our reach. We believe that the continued growth in league revenue shares as well as the maturation of our sponsorship model will result in significant revenue growth, while the revenues from our venue project, once completed, will add significant value over the long term, “added Overholt. added.
