PHL-UK Sports Industry Leader Meeting of the Minds

On Thursday, January 19th, the BABCPHL hosted a by invitation-only lunch for regional sport stakeholders. This meeting of the minds included industry leaders representing various sports. Throughout the years, the BABCPHL has offered programs around the Olympics, the World Cup, soccer, and rugby, to name a few. The purpose of this roundtable discussion was to thank our partners and to recognize their hard work and positive impact. Sport is a great unifier, and it’s been an amazing year. Hard work pays off! Philadelphia was officially selected as a FIFA World Cup 2026™ host city in the US, and our sports teams are boasting winning seasons.

Lunch meeting objectives were to learn what industry professionals are working on today, and to discuss future UK-related sporting events that are on the horizon. Did you know Philadelphia is bidding to host the Rugby World Cup? During the past few years in particular, sports programs have been something British Chamber members seek. We are eager to collaborate with sport industry stakeholders, especially those with origins and ties to the UK, to build upon this excitement and momentum.

Elevating the business of sport throughout our community is a win-win, and the BABCPHL is ready to assist. We look forward to driving support and attracting corporate engagement for the great pastime – sport, a powerful vehicle for societal change. “Sport for good”/grassroots community involvement; diversity, equity, and inclusion; tourism and business development; and the role of media and technology were recurring topics of conversation.

The time is now, and we want to hear from you! As business professionals operating in this region, how do you want to be involved? Please keep an eye out for a survey scheduled to hit your inbox soon. There is so much to come and so much excitement to be shared on a global scale. The UK is a prominent player and Philadelphia is home! We are excited to collaborate with regional sport stakeholders, and thank each of them for their generous time, creativity, and enthusiasm they offered during our working lunch.
