Formula 1 owners could buy minority Liverpool stake

Liberty Media – owners of Formula 1 – is a contender to invest in Liverpool, reports the Telegraph.

Fenway Sports Group (FSG) are looking at major media companies as potential investors to acquire a minority stake in the Merseyside club.

The Liverpool owners are examining a partial sale as they look to fund the next stage in the club’s development.

Liberty Media is a US media giant that also owns Major League Baseball’s Atlanta Braves and SiriusXM radio group. The exact percentage of the Reds that FSG plans to sell is unknown.

Liverpool need major funding ahead of the summer transfer window.

A major squad overhaul is required given their struggles across all competitions this term.

Jurgen Klopp’s side suffered a 5-2 defeat at the hands of Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16.

Liverpool are seventh in the Premier League after 23 games, nine points off the top four.

While the club owners are looking to sell a stake in the club, they could be open to selling part of FSG.

The parent company sold 10% of their stake to private investment firm RedBird in 2021.

It helped provide funding for the £60 million Anfield Road stand, which is due to open next season.

FSG are looking to raise investment for Liverpool as they eye another major development.

Formula 1 just signed a 15-year deal with Tottenham Hotspur. It will see the world’s first in-stadium electric karting track built under the South Stand.

Their owners could soon do business with another Premier League club as Liverpool eye major investments.
