Liverpool Football Club “For Sale” – Report


By Peter Nurse – Liverpool Football Club is up for sale by owners Fenway Sports Group, according to a report on Monday.

Subscription-based sports website Athletic reported Monday that a full presentation has been prepared for all interested parties, of which there are likely to be many, given the global appeal of the fabled English Premier League team.

A statement from FSG to The Athletic read: “There have been a number of recent ownership changes and rumors of ownership changes at EPL clubs and it is inevitable that we are regularly asked about the ownership of Fenway Sports Group in Liverpool.

“FSG has regularly received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become shareholders of Liverpool. FSG has previously said that we would consider new shareholders under the right conditions if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club.”

“FSG remains fully committed to Liverpool’s success, both on and off the pitch.”

FSG, led by American businessman John Henry, bought Liverpool in 2010 paying £300 million (£1 = $1,145) at the time and will be looking to make a significant profit on that investment.

EPL rival Chelsea was bought from Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich in May by a consortium led by American Todd Boehly for £4.25 billion.

Liverpool have won the EPL title 19 times, the second most in the league’s history, and finished second last season, winning both the FA Cup and the League Cup final, before losing the Champions League final to the Spanish giant Real Madrid.
