Liverpool up for sale as FSG owners welcome offers

The Fenway Sports Group has put Liverpool Football Club up for sale in an effort to find new owners for the Premier League team.

According to The Athletic, the owners have prepared a comprehensive presentation for interested parties.

“There have been a number of recent changes of ownership and rumours of changes in ownership at EPL clubs and inevitably we are asked regularly about Fenway Sports Group’s ownership in Liverpool,” read a statement from Fenway Sports Group to The Athletic.

“FSG has frequently received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become shareholders in Liverpool.

FSG has said before that under the right terms and conditions we would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club.

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

Since purchasing Liverpool from George Gillett Jr. and Tom Hicks in October 2010, the group has been the club’s owner.

And although they have generated controversy over the past 12 years, they have helped Anfield achieve success.

The Reds have won eight titles over that time, including the Premier League and the Champions League, with the latter seeing them advance to two more finals.

Most of that has happened under Jurgen Klopp’s historic leadership, who just signed a new deal that links him to the team through the year 2026.

The club is reportedly up for sale, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, so it appears FSG may not be the club’s owners by the time Klopp’s contract expires.

Controversial aspects of FSG’s ownership of the team have existed. After the group attempted to trademark the name “Liverpool” in 2019, they came under fire.

The team participated in its first Champions League final since 2007 in 2018, and they won the competition by defeating Tottenham the following season.

They broke their protracted Premier League drought the following year by winning the English national championship for the first time in thirty years. Additionally, they won the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup.

FSG had considered chances in the past but chose not to take them. Whether or not a deal will ultimately be completed is unknown, but FSG is accepting bids.
