E33: Oli Slipper

This week Richard and Sean head to Putney to talk to Oli Slipper about the expensive mistakes that await sport’s OTT boom; the secret of the Maradona documentary and commercial appeal of long form sports films; why DAZN sold Perform and what Len Blavatnik’s really like; Barry Hearn’s sweary advice and the challenges of selling football club websites in the days of dial up internet connections. The former pro cricketer is now Chair of Pitch International, the sports rights agency, so we talked to him at the company’s riverside HQ, where the wall of his office is covered with a photo of Kenny Dalglish, despite Oli being a Spurs season ticket holder.
