Football Club Acquisition/Buy Side


Blackbridge provide clear, relevant and timely advice to investors that is uniquely built on deep knowledge, keen strategic understanding and critical judgment that can only come from extensive experience brokering football club takeovers. Unlike most investment banks and boutiques in the sports industry, Blackbridge is not involved in trading, research or lending, each of which can create conflicts when advising clients.


Historically Blackbridge had primarily introduced the buyer but sell-side positioned only on Chinese led investments. This was due to the unique Mainland Chinese investor approach. Blackbridge now frequently work as a buy-side advisor to lead the purchase of a football club. This has changed due to the market shift from China back to the United States.


We work side-by-side with acquirers to identify compelling investment opportunities and to facilitate all aspects of deal execution.
