Dundalk confirm sale of club to Peak6

Dundalk FC has today completed the sale of 100% of the club’s shares to a US based Consortium.

The group is led by PEAK6 Sports from Chicago and includes investors with significant experience in football on both the commercial and playing sides. PEAK6 also owns a stake in English Premier League side AFC Bournemouth

‘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,’ he added.

The previous owners see the sale as a significant step forward for the club. ‘We have always said that we would only step down if we found the right kind of owners for the club and in this consortium we believe we have done that,’ explained Paul Brown. ‘ We are confident that they will take Dundalk FC to even greater success in the coming years.’

Both Paul and Andy will continue to support the club going forward acting as honorary ambassadors.

  1. Not sure if this is a good thing for the club. This Yank crowd are in for one thing only: profit. It would be great though to see longer contracts given out to avoid losing players on free transfers. Investment in youth team structures would be nice too. I’d be worried though that this sort of ownership might take away from the community feel of LOI clubs

  2. Remains to be seen. They could also do with pumping money into the stadium and pitch. If Dundalk want to play in Europe, they shouldn’t have to play in Tallaght stadium.

  3. The obvious attraction is playing in Europe where the real money is to be made, not LOI. But that said, they will make more money playing their European games in Dundalk, not Tallaght.
