US consortium agrees deal to buy Dundalk
An American consortium from Chicago has purchased 100% of Dundalk FC, the club announced tonight.
The group is led by PEAK6 Sports, who also own a stake in Premier League side Bournemouth.
In a statement, a spokesman for the group praised the success the club has enjoyed in recent seasons.
"We’ve been following the incredible success of Dundalk FC over the past few seasons and have spent months assessing this opportunity, attending games and getting to know the club," said spokesman Jordan Gardner.
"What Stephen Kenny and the players have accomplished under the stewardship of Andy Connolly and Paul Brown is nothing short of remarkable. We are excited to take up the reins and help build on the club’s success. We are confident that with all of us working together there will be many more good days and nights ahead for Dundalk FC."
Dundalk won three Airtricity Premier Division titles in-a-row before Cork City dethroned them in 2018.
