Britehorn Partner Brett Story was recently quoted in a MarketWarch opinion article: “Investors who want to buy sports teams look to Europe, not the U.S.”
Buying a sports team in the United States is difficult not only difficult due to availability, but also cost. Brett Story of Britehorn Partners says: “Give a serious look to investing in professional soccer overseas, especially in Europe.” To Story’s point, those growing markets and team valuations are lower than here in the United States. As a foreign investor, you get a lot for your money. Not only are high net worth individuals and family offices that are priced out of the U.S. turning to Europe, but so are sovereign wealth investments from the Middle East, China and across Asia.
