The English soccer sector has become the latest area of sporting interest for wealthy investors to explore. American-based investors have entered the English Premier League with varying levels of success, but Milwaukee Bucks owner Wes Edens is entering the soccer world through an investment in the English Championship, one level below the Premier League. Edens has been one of the leading owners in the NBA since purchasing the Milwaukee-based franchise in 2014 and investing heavily in both the team and the city.
Fans of the historic Asont Villa soccer club will be hoping for a similar change of fortunes after the former Europe4an champion was relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2015-16 season. The historic club resembles the state Wes Edens found the Bucks franchise in when he arrived as co-owner in 2014 amid fears from fans the franchise would be moved to a more lucrative market. The “Villains” home stadium of Villa Park in the city of Birmingham, England is historic but in need of updates, a similar situation to the one found in Milwaukee which led Edens to deliver a new arena in just four years.
