Wes Edens Buys Aston Villa Club

Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens are joining efforts to support Aston Villa Football club. The two well-known businessmen are the present owners of the club after buying it for $39 million. They will be the majority owners of the team. This transaction was made official after the approval from the English Football league. Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens have a company of their own called NSWE, the organization that is purchasing the team. At the same time, the former owner of the team, Tony Xia will also remain with the team. Tony will be a co-chairman and will also be part of the club’s board. Tony is an entrepreneur from China who bought the team in 2016.

The support that comes from these two investors makes the future of Aston Villa look better than before. The club, at the moment, takes part in the competitions going on in the English Football League but looks forward to joining the major league, the Premier League. Aston Villa has played in the Premier League for 29 years before being dropped. The Premier League is the most prominent league in Britain which has enormous popularity worldwide.

Aston Villa began its home games in 1887 in Villa Park in Birmingham. At the moment the club has a stadium that can allow over 42,000 fans to sit. The support that Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens are offering to the club is aimed at restoring the club to its former glory. The duo looks forward to having significant changes within the club as one of the strategies to achieve their goals. The first step involves assessing the potential of all the players present in the club as well as the mechanism that the club has laid when it comes to training methods. In addition to this, the duo aims to analyze the management of the club as well as the structures of the team. Moreover, Wes Edens and Nassef Sawiris are looking forward to signing new players into the team to strengthen the current players.

The club just lost the chance it had to reenter the Premier league. In May 2018, the team lost to Fulham Football Club in a playoff game which would allow the club back to the main league. This was a challenging moment for the parties concerned as the club has been doing its best to secure a position in the league. However, the organization of the club has hope that this will happen and the club will get its chance into the Premier League.
