Liverpool has been listed for sale by Fenway Sports Group (FSG).

For those who are interested, a complete sales presentation has been created.

FSG has considered opportunities 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.

To help with the process, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have been hired.

A statement from FSG, who also own the Boston Red Sox, to The Athletic read: “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.

“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.

Jurgen Klopp was appointed manager of Liverpool at that time. In 2019–20, they won their first Premier League championship—also their first title in 30 years. In addition, they won the FA Cup, Carabao Cup, and Champions League.

Anfield has undergone significant changes under FSG’s ownership, including the construction of a new £110 million Main Stand and renovations to the Anfield Road Stand. The £80 million project will be finished next summer, increasing capacity by approximately 61,000.

The club’s relocation from Melwood to a new £50 million training facility in Kirkby has also been managed by FSG.

It is principally owned by John W. Henry, who was one of two founders alongside chairman Tom Werner. FSG also own the Red Sox, television network NESN, 50 per cent of Roush Fenway Racing and Fenway Sports Management.

Last year, FSG sold an 11% stake in the business to RedBird Capital Partners for $750 million (£655 million), after which it acquired a controlling interest in the Pittsburgh Penguins, a premier NHL ice hockey team.

Controversial aspects of FSG’s ownership of the team have existed. As the supporters’ group Spirit of Shankly lobbied against the club’s attempt to trademark the name Liverpool in 2019, they came under fire.

One of the six Premier League teams that participated in the failed European Super League the previous season was Liverpool. They left the project after objections. Henry publicly apologised to the crowd.

When Werner spoke to The Athletic in May, he insisted FSG wasn’t going anywhere. He said: “Yes, we still see it as a long-term project. We are hungry to win more trophies for the club.”

The most recent takeover of a major Premier League side was the Todd Boehly-led purchase of Chelsea, which cost £2.5billion.
