Blackbridge Sports entered into the competitive football financing space in Q1, 2020 due to our long standing relationships in China and Hong Kong with stakeholders of football clubs.
Ownership groups and their financial advisers regularly contact us and request our assistance and advice on introducing trusted lenders in the market. The lenders we introduce are UHNW Investor backed Family Offices from North America, East Asia and the Middle East. The loan types we have generally worked on are loans backed by TV rights income and/or player receivables in England, Portugal and Spain.
Blackbridge do not give financial or legal advice on such arrangements – we solely facilitate high quality introductions and best manage expectations with principals and their deal teams which includes lawyers, bankers and accountants.
Due to the COVID-19 impact on the football and sports business, we will continue to be very active in this business in the coming months and years.
