FSG announce minority investment in Liverpool from Dynasty Equity

FSG announce minority investment in Liverpool from Dynasty Equity

Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) have announced the sale of a minority stake in the club to United States investors Dynasty Equity.

This comes after a year of intense speculation about FSG’s intentions for Liverpool, which had included rumours of a potential full sale of the club they acquired for £300 million in October 2010.

FSG’s principal owner, John Henry, had repeatedly emphasised that the club was not for sale but expressed a willingness to entertain interest in potential investors amid links to Formula 1 owners.

The objective was to bring in an external investor to bolster Liverpool’s finances, which has now been realized, with FSG and Dynasty striking an agreement.

The stake acquired by Dynasty is believed to be valued at approximately £80-160m but does not grant the sports investment firm any decision-making authority in the club’s daily operations. 

The investment will catalyse an immediate surge in Liverpool’s transfer market expenditure but will primarily be used to address debts accrued during the pandemic.

These debts include expenses related to constructing a new training facility in Kirkby, ongoing renovations at Anfield, and covering expenses from the previous transfer window, where Liverpool made substantial investments in recruiting four players.

“Our long-term commitment to Liverpool remains as strong as ever,” said FSG president Mike Gordon. 

“We have always said that if there is an investment partner that is right for Liverpool, then we would pursue the opportunity to help ensure the club’s long-term financial resiliency and future growth.

“We look forward to building upon the long-standing relationship with Equity to further strengthen the club’s financial position and sustain our ambitions for continued success on and off the pitch.”

Dynasty chief executive officer, K Don Cornwell, added: “Liverpool is one of the most iconic football clubs in the world with a passionate fanbase and significant global reach. 

“Dynasty is privileged to support the club and work alongside FSG to execute the tremendous growth opportunities ahead.”
