Hockey – NHL – Eco


The owners of Liverpool and Toulouse FC, partners in Fenway Sports Group, are said to be on the verge of buying a historic National Hockey League (NHL) franchise: the Pittsburgh Penguins. According to Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times, the owner of Liverpool, recently associated with the owner of Toulouse FC, will buy the NHL franchise from the Pittsburgh Penguins (the Pittsburgh Penguins). Fenway Sports Group (FSG), the entity headed by American billionaire John Henry, at the head of Liverpool (since 2010) and the Boston Red Sox (baseball), is expected to raise some $ 850 million (€ 750 million) on the table to acquire historic (1967) Pennsylvania-based hockey training. Official this Thursday? The Anglo-Saxon press notes that this takeover, which could be formalized this Thursday, comes just a few months after the star of NBA LeBron James and the former associate of the Goldman Sachs bank Gerry Cardinale, at the head of the RedBird Capital fund, majority shareholder of Toulouse FC (Ligue 2), have taken a minority stake in Fenway Sports Group. This opening of capital was precisely intended to allow FSG to expand its portfolio of participations in sports teams. As a reminder, RedBird Capital acquired an 85% stake in Toulouse FC in July 2020.
