CapStone Holdings Inc.

GameAbove Sports aims to broaden its investment portfolio by venturing into various franchises and established or new leagues globally, including the NBA, NFL, MLS, and NWSL, as well as emerging platforms like volleyball, pickleball, and rugby. Their investment strategy includes:

  • Evaluating minority and majority franchise ownership positions.

  • Stimulating innovation within established and new sports sectors.

GameAbove Sports will partner with sponsored athletes and brand ambassadors across collegiate to professional levels, selecting individuals based on character and alignment with the company’s values. Current athletes include pro golfers Josh Anderson, Cam Kellett, and Brett White. The entity will also leverage integrated sports marketing services to enhance brand visibility and create engaging experiences through its global partnerships. “Our strategic partnership model is more than sponsorship. It’s about building authentic connections that elevate the athlete and brand experience,” said Adam Squire, Director of Sports Operations at GameAbove Sports.

Committed to expanding its impact on youth sports development and charitable giving, GameAbove Sports aims to partner with exceptional youth sports organizations, leagues, and coaches to provide training, resources, and competitive opportunities to underserved communities and marginalized groups in sports such as golf and soccer.
