NBC Sports Partners with Premiere League for US Live Events and Madison Square Garden Appoints New Executive VP

Stocks discussed: (NasdaqGS:CMCSA) (NYSE:MSG)

Comcast Corporation’s (NasdaqGS:CMCSA) NBC Sports and the Premier League have announced a series of live fan events across the United States beginning in D.C. in September, the AP reports.
NBC Sports chief marketing officer Jenny Storms told The Associated Press it was “an opportunity to be able to continue to grow the touch points in the United States for Premier League fans as they don’t traditionally get it (in person).”
“This is an evolution,” Storms said. “This is now partnering with the Premier League given how strongly they feel about the U.S. market and given how important the U.S. market is to them as an organization.”

Madison Square Garden (NYSE:MSG) has named Richard Constable as the company’s Executive Vice President, Global Head of Government Relations and Public Affairs, effective immediately. Constable recently served as Senior Vice President, Government Relations and Commercial Contracts for Wyndham Worldwide Corporation.

Stephens, Both Williams and Nadal Advance to Round 2 at US Open, Beckham Jr. Highest-Paid Wide-Receiver in the NFL with New Giants Contract and Indonesian Jonatan Christie Wins Signature Event at Asian Games

Following the surprising first round elimination of Simona Halep yesterday at the U.S. Open, stars such as No.3-seeded Sloane Stephens, Venus and Serena Williams emerged victorious to advance to round two play today. Serena Williams, who missed last year’s U.S. Open to give birth, triumphed over Polish player Magda Linette 6-4, 6-0. The Associated Press quotes Williams on the win:

“The first set was tight. It was my first back here in New York, so that wasn’t the easiest,” Williams told the crowd. “Once I got settled, I started doing what I’m trying to do in practice.”

On the men’s side, four seeded players lost and defending U.S. Open champion Rafael Nadal beat fellow Spanish player David Ferrer after the latter left with an injury.

Odell Beckham Jr. is now the highest-paid wide-receiver in the NFL after signing a five-year contract extension with the New York Giants for $95 million. CNBC quotes Giants’ General Manager Dave Gettleman on the deal:

"You can't force things, it's a negotiation. It's a back and forth, both sides have to be intentional and thoughtful, which we were. It was great negotiating, it was a very good give and take with Kevin (Abrams, the assistant general manager) and Zeke (Sandhu, Beckham's agent). We got to the right answer as far as I'm concerned."

The Jakarta Post reports that Indonesia’s signature event for the Asian Games, badminton, was won by Indonesian Jonatan Christie. “Jojo” beat Taiwan’s Chou Tienchen 21-15 in the final match, securing his gold medal victory.
