Roc Nation Sports is the sports management division of Roc Nation. The division was founded by Carter in spring 2013 in partnership with Creative Artists Agency, a prominent talent agency based in Los Angeles.

According to Ranker, Roc Nation Sports currently represents 77 athletes across fields such as basketball, baseball, boxing and American football. Names on their client list include the likes of Kyrie Irving, Skylar Diggins, Victor Cruz and Jeremy Lin, to name a few.
