What do we think?

The City Football Group (CFG) are continuing to invest heavily and smartly in the sport and the news they are set to purchase Mumbai City comes in the same week the group announced a £389m investment from US equity firm Silver Lake. India has a huge appetite for football with millions of fans tuning in to watch the European game on a weekly basis and therefore commercially this appears to be a positive step.

CFG currently own Manchester City, New York City F.C., Melbourne City F.C., Club Atletico Torque, Girona and hold shares in Sichuan Jiuniu F.C. and the Yokohama F. Marinos.
