The Players’ Tribune

PricewaterhouseCoopers Corporate Finance LLC (“PwC Corporate Finance”) acted as exclusive financial advisor to The Players’ Tribune (“TPT”).

TPT is a unique storytelling platform built by athletes, for athletes. The company was created in 2014 when New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter recognized an opportunity to give athletes the tools and support necessary to tell their stories in an authentic, powerful way.

TPT initially focused on delivering athlete stories through powerful long-form articles that immediately captured the attention of sports fans, traditional media outlets and other athletes. Building on this success, TPT quickly expanded its capabilities into various video and audio formats, publishing content on its own website, across all major social media channels and in conjunction with OTT and entertainment partners.

By successfully developing trusted and authentic relationships with its community of close to 2,000 athlete contributors, TPT established a unique foundation to create and deliver content unlike anything else in the market.

In an environment where tens of billions of dollars are spent to acquire content, TPT has been able to leverage its library of evergreen stories to repurpose articles and videos after initial publication for sale to other partners or distribution through new channels.

PwC Corporate Finance ran a competitive dual capital raise / M&A process comprising both strategic and financial suitors. After considering multiple options, Minute Media was selected as the preferred partner for the business given strong strategic alignment and continued support for the athlete community going forward.
