    Some sources (mainly paywalls) for information on the business of sports I've encountered:

    Wall Street Journal The Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) | Twitter (some paywall)

    Forbes (which includes many sports related rankings by leagues)

    Bloomberg (some paywall)

    The Atheletic sports biz The Athletic (@TheAthleticBIZ) | Twitter (Paywall articles; three free/month through downloading app)

    Sports Business Journal/Daily Sports Business Journal (@sbjsbd) | Twitter (Paywall articles)

    Many cities/regions have their own business journal (related to above, sometimes paywall)

    Darren Rovell Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) | Twitter

    Sports & Betting law Law360 (@Law360) | Twitter (Paywall)
    Decent source for lawsuit summaries of what's happening around the US

    What a Canceled Season Costs the NBA, MLB, NHL and Other Leagues

    Taking the data from Forbes, etc., for NBA, MLB, NHL, NFL teams, they summarize:

    Franchise value
    Revenue
    Revenue/home game
    Gate receipts (annual, per game)
    Ticket price (TMR alert)
    Merchandise/concession revenue (annual, per game)
    Income (annual, per game)
    Major sponsors


    Nice summary.
