PSG owner Qatar Sports Investments sells minority share to US firm Arctos

-

Paris Saint-Germain’s owner Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) has sold a minority stake in the club to United States-based investment fund Arctos Sports Partners.

Arctos, who have already invested in over 20 sports teams and organisations across MLB, NBA, MLS, NHL, Formula One and European football, will acquire up to 12.5% of the club, which is valued at €4.25billion by the deal.

PSG have dominated French football since being bought by QSI for an estimated €70m in 2011, winning Ligue 1 in nine of the last 11 seasons and reaching the UEFA Champions League final in 2019-20.

In a statement, the club said Arctos’ investment would go towards their stadium plans, with PSG exploring potential alternative sites after failing to buy the Parc des Princes from the Paris city council earlier this year.

The US firm could also fund a potential redevelopment of the club’s training centre, as well as investing in its women’s team, which finished second to Lyon in the French top flight last season.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said: “We are delighted to welcome Arctos into the Paris Saint-Germain family as a strategic partner and investor.

“We are entering the next exciting phase of PSG’s growth and development, both on and off the pitch – which is based on long-term ambitions and attaining excellence in everything we do.

“Arctos is a fantastic partner to help us achieve our goals, bringing strategic expertise, ideas and innovation to our business, while providing investment and new relationships to support our footballing and sporting goals.”
