“Other leaders in business, media, and technology have joined Mr. Stephen Pagliuca and Mr. Tanenbaum,” he said in a statement.
“The group welcomes the True Blues Consortium’s endorsement and support, an organization dedicated to Chelsea FC and focused on representing fan interests for the club.”
“These include former Disney CEO Bob Iger and renowned journalist Willow Bay; Facebook Co-Founder Eduardo Saverin and businesswoman Elaine Saverin; B Capital co-founder Raj Ganguly; co-owner of the Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Los Angeles Football Club Peter Guber; global venture capitalist Jim Breyer, of Breyer Capital; investor John Burbank; and serial tech entrepreneur Div Turakhia.
We have to admit, that’s a pretty impressive group of business leaders from sports, investment, and technology. Pagliuca is a co-owner of the Boston Celtics (an NBA team) and the Serie A club Atalanta.
He, along with four other bidders, is still in the running to buy Chelsea.
