Following the aftermath of the dead-before-arrival ESL, I have seen suggestions that premiership clubs go majority fan owned, possibly roughly modelling the German 50% + 1 share rule.
Without going into the Bundesliga’s intricacies of the system, lets hear what LFC fan ownership could turn out should it see the light of day, whether by legislation (not simple) or more “voluntary” (fat hope) means.
Looking around the web, I’ve seen the value of LFC put at between 1 to 3 billion GBP. Just for a elementary discussion, lets have it at £2B.
My question is how much could a potential average fan expect to cough up to be a shareholder. Assuming one million investors, that’s £1,000 each (of course some fans could invest in many multiples of that), from the 50+1’s £1B.
This is all very simplistic and speculative but if the £1K is taken as ballpark, would you consider being a fan-owner of LFC?
For me, that’s a maybe at the moment, with half that amount more probable from my pocket.
Perhaps some knowledgeable forummer could redo my almost “picked from the air” figures?
