According to multiple reports in Italy, American investment firm 777 Partners have formally bought a majority stake in Genoa for €150m.
Several rumours suggested Genoa President Enrico Preziosi was about to sell a majority stake in the club to the American firm and according to multiple reports in Italy, the two parties finalised the agreement this morning.
777 Partners is a Miami-based private investment firm that ‘invests across a number of high growth attractive verticals with a strong focus on financial services.’ They also own minority shares of La Liga side Sevilla.
A previous report from La Gazzetta dello Sport claimed Preziosi will remain at the club as a minority shareholder for three years and will continue to represent the club within the Lega Calcio and at an institutional level.
According to Calciomercato.com, 777 Partners have bought Genoa for €150m, including debt repayment.
Preziosi bought Genoa in 2003 after the club’s relegation to Serie C1. An official statement from the club is expected in the coming hours.
