Money enhances sports? Is it true?
Chicken

Pro

Hello everyone and welcome! As Con has failed to give any definitions, I will take the liberty of Defining them.

Money- Any currency or item of monetary value that may be traded or given in exchange for another item

Enhances- to make greater, as in value, beauty, or effectiveness; augment. [1]

Sport- Physical activity that is often engaged in competitively. [2]

Onto the Argument-

Pro's argument will rest with money being used to buy steroids, which in turn enhance sport through strength and athleticism. Basically, steroids improve athletic performance, as a study by Penn State University proves. [3] I will await Con's remarks on the issue (as I am unsure whether this round is for acceptance or not) before proceeding.

Sorry if you didn't get it. Actually I'm entering debate for district level. My friends and I, all of us are lacking of points for given topic. So, we need to be prepared for both, pros and cons. Can you help me to find the points?

I do not understand your given topic. It is quite general. In which aspects does money enhance sports? what does this topic mean? Negative or positive meaning?
