The 36 years old basketball superstar LeBron increased his stake in Liverpool after he became a partner with American ownership group Fenway. LeBron had a two percent stake in Liverpool since 2011 which he acquired at £4.7m.
FSG group acquired Liverpool FC in 2010 under the name England Sports Ventures from previous American owners Tom Hicks George Gillet.
The 17 times NBA All-Star Basketball superstar LeBron is ambitious of owning an NBA team one day with the League rules forbidding an active player to own an NBA team.
James is the fifth-highest paid athlete in the 2020 ranking with his earnings standing at $88m. Forbes estimates his net worth value to around $450m.
LeBron is now the third-largest shareholder in Fenway Sports Group after the pair approved his £540m investment from RedBird Capital.
“I’ll never forget the feeling of walking through the Shankly Gates, the atmosphere and the fans. It was an adrenaline rush and one of the greatest experiences I’ve had watching sports.
“Liverpool FC is admired across the world and I’ve learned firsthand that it’s the people who make the community special.
“Family and community are truly at the heart of everything they do. No matter where they are.”
