Sports/Media/Entertainment groups

Would really appreciate insight into what the best groups are. Currently interning in IB but covering a different industry & want to pivot to a group that covers stuff I actually like lol

Raine, MoeLA, Allen - the three I know of that are elite in these industries, are there any others I should be targeting?

GS TMT, media coverage has always been great and sports practice has been on a tear lately

if I want to, I could do it. But I thought they're mostly tech bc of proximity to Silicon Valley

I was thinking Allen > GS (for my interests specially… before the GS cavalry comes for me)

Some of the bulge bracket banks have sub-groups of their broader Public Finance Group that work on stadium financings, both in the USA and Europe.  For example, most NFL stadiums are owned a government entity.  There are debt and equity-linked deals that financed Premier League and La Liga stadiums.

Also curious to hear about buyside exits in this realm of sports/M&E – which shops are elite here? I'm not a clout chaser so super niche shops/"no names" are perfectly welcome
