Changing Market Forces NFL To Reevaluate Ownership Rules

Sep 15, 2023

The NFL created a new committee that will study “all aspects of ownership policy,” including rules related to liquidity requirements for purchasing teams and opening up investments currently limited to individuals.

“The league detailed the ‘Special Committee’ in a memo it sent to teams last month, of which Front Office Sports obtained a portion on Thursday.

“Following the Denver and Washington transactions, the Finance Committee agreed that it would be appropriate to look at the full range of ownership policies, including permitted debt levels, minimum equity requirements and holding periods, eligible categories of investors, and expanding opportunities for more diverse ownership,” the memo stated.
