It has been revealed that the interested consortium looking to purchase Dundalk FC are Peak6.
They are a Chicago-based investment firm, who have a 25% stake in English Premier League side Bournemouth.
As expected, Peak6 noticed and became interested in Dundalk after their amazing Europa League run in 2016 which they only lost out on a last 32 spot on the last match of the group stages.
Matt Hulsizer invested in Bournemouth two seasons ago and also partly owns NHL side Minnesota Wild.
Apparently Hulsizer has already had discussions with Dundalk owners Paul Brown and Andy Connolly, and if a deal was to be struck the pair would still be very much a part of the club going forward.
Garry Doyle of the Times broke the story and stated in his piece that Peak6’s plan involves rebuilding Oriel Park as a 7,500-seater stadium complete with corporate facilities and building a schoolboy structure which would make the club self-financing.
