Fenway Sports Group (FSG) has put Liverpool FC up for sale. As reported by David Ornstein of The Athletic, it remains unclear whether or not a deal will be done, but FSG is inviting offers.

Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley will assist with the sale process. A statement from FSG 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.”

How long has FSG has owned Liverpool?

FSG has owned Liverpool since October 2010, when it bought the club from George Gillett Jr. and Tom Hicks. In 12 years at Anfield, the group has seen Liverpool win the Premier League title in 2019-20. The Anfield outfit also won the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and the Champions League.

In 2019, Liverpool’s owners were criticised after the club tried to trademark the name Liverpool. The Merseyside club were also one of six Premier League sides to commit to the failed European Super League last year. After protests, they withdrew from the project. John W. Henry subsequently apologised publicly to the club’s fanbase.
