A Chicago-based firm have today bought themselves a 25% stake in Premier League team, AFC Bournemouth. Peak 6 Investments is led by Matt Hulszier, who also owns the NHL ice hockey team Minnesota Wild.
“The club is confident this partnership will further strengthen its ability to compete with the very best” Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn said.
Russain owner Max Denim, who has played a crucial part in the club’s rise to the Premier League, still remains involved in the club.
Peak6 has been known to launch bids for English clubs, with their recent coming for Championship side Reading in August of last year.
Eddie Howe’s squad is currently ravaged with injuries and Peak6 may help Bournemouth with extra funds as the January transfer window quickly approaches.
On the new stake in the club, Hulszier said “I am excited and honoured to partner with Maxim and Bournemouth. I was introduced to the club over 2 seasons ago and since then I have followed the club’s progress and seen the tremendous accomplishments in that time. I am confident that we can establish ourselves in that time”.
So, with Bournemouth currently struggling in the top flight, can Peak6 bring around a new dawn for the club or could they make things there a whole lot more complicated? Only time will tell.
