About Sport Capital Group plc 
Sport Capital Group invests in companies in the global sports and leisure 
sectors. In particular the focus is on football, associated real estate, 
stadium assets, merchandising and IP. 
SCG's strategy is to invest in a portfolio of at least six football clubs, 
their IP and real estate, focusing on opportunities in Europe including the 
United Kingdom. The Company will bring professional on- and off-pitch football 
management, business and corporate finance capabilities to bear on 
under-managed clubs, of which there are many. The team will consist of 
professionals from football, business and the capital markets. 
The Company's business model is to acquire lower league and non-league clubs, 
apply capital, business expertise, high-level football management and coaching, 
to create positive momentum and team psychology resulting in promotions to 
higher leagues. It will innovate and develop new revenue streams in its 
portfolio clubs. Promotion usually adds greatly to revenue streams and results 
in significantly higher asset values.
