Throughout the football world, various entities, whether that being individuals, American PE firms, and many more, have found football teams as a potential investment strategy. With earlier this year Chelsea Football Club having been sold to an investment group led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital for £4.25BN, it seems that Fenway Sports Group, who bought Liverpool FC back in 2010, may be open to receiving further investment for the club.
Since FSG’s ownership, the club has won:
- Twice: The Premier League, the Champions League, the FA Cup, and the Carabao Cup.
- The FIFA Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup, and the Community Shield at that time.
With all the success, the club is estimated around to £5 BN compared to the £300 MM at which it was bought in 2010. For FSG, this may be a potential time to exit their investment or generate cash from a minority investment to remain competitive.
