Fenway, the real American dream for the Girondins de Bordeaux?

This should at least reassure Bordeaux supporters who are still traumatised by the club’s previous passage under the American flag: Fenway Sports Group’s business card is nothing like that of GACP and King Street, the two American investment funds that bought the Girondins from M6 in November 2018.

The first did not have the means to match his ambitions, and the second had let himself be carried away by the adventure without the slightest expertise in the field, which had very quickly led to their separation. FSG has owned the Boston Red Sox (MLB) since 2002, Liverpool since 2010, and the Pittsburgh Penguins (NHL) since 2021. The fortune of its majority shareholder John Henry, estimated at $5.1 billion (around €4.7 billion), places him among the 600 richest men on the planet, according to Forbes.

The group’s partners include NBA star LeBron James. “At Fenway Sports Group, we have 20 years of experience acquiring iconic clubs, the company emphasizes on its website. Our management philosophy is focused on preserving, protecting and enhancing the organizations we acquire, while making strategic investments in innovative sports and entertainment companies. Our success is based on the talent and skills of the people who lead our businesses and who excel in the art of combining innovation with history and tradition.
