BTO’s corporate team has acted for a German investor in Dunfermline Athletic Football Club. The investor has taken an initial 30% stake in the Club’s enlarged share capital, with the option to increase that stake by a further 45.1%.
The Club and its new investor hope that this strategic move will allow Dunfermline Athletic to develop a youth academy and new training facilities, as well as gaining access to a scouting network in Germany and wider Europe.
Gary Booth of BTO’s Sports Law team said:
“We are delighted to have acted for our client in this investment and we are sure that all parties will be working hard to enable Dunfermline Athletic FC to realise its long-term goals.”
