Research shows that if you connect learning to a person’s interest it increases engagement. I am always curious to know what young people like and many mention sports, singing and dancing; which are all reasonable interests. However, if you are looking to invest directly in major professional sports teams or the performing acts via the stock market you may want to look at other activities they enjoy. Ownership in a particular sport, team or the arts is difficult if you are not a billionaire.
However, you can consider buying a young person stock in related apparel manufacturers. Some products, as well as endorsements by professional athletes and entertainers, can bring awareness of a company to a young stock investor. There are additional options for sports and the arts-related stocks through television outlets, movie theaters, streaming networks, technology industry, health clubs/fitness centers, and even the racetrack/automotive industry. Some examples to consider are Disney+, Dancing with the Stars, Animae, or even The Ford vs. Ferrari movie may help connect their interest in learning about business and investing.
The movie and entertainment industry can connect a young person’s interest within a vast array of fine arts. Dancing, singing, acting, animation, etc. are seen in motion pictures, at amusement parks and children entertainment centers so it’s a reasonable connection.
Furthermore, a few USA sports teams were publicly traded in the past, but with the exception of Green Bay Packers and their non-tradable stock, those teams have since reverted to private ownership. I read that overseas major professional sports teams, unlike American sports organizations, have been more willing to issue public stock as a means of raising capital. International soccer teams have been particularly adept at using stock to fund their operations. Being excessively proud on your hometown team is one thing, but generally speaking, for investors, sports teams have underperformed in the market.
