THE FSG FAMILY
Boston Red Sox
After eight decades of near misses and tragic postseason endings, the Red Sox have realized a period of unparalleled success under FSG’s leadership ranking first with titles over the past 21 years and tied for second in postseason wins. During that time, fan interest in the team soared with the club welcoming nearly 3 million fans to Fenway Park annually, growing its national and international footprint. During FSG’s stewardship, the Red Sox held the longest sellout streak in baseball history, lasting over 10 years, and solidified Fenway Park as New England’s largest tourist destination with fans traveling from all over the world to experience a game at the historic venue. After embarking on a 10-year series of improvements to protect and enhance Fenway Park, the ballpark now maximizes every inch of space and tastefully incorporate modern amenities making it a state-of-the-art facility. Over $400 million has been invested in the restoration and preservation of Fenway Park since 2002 and the ballpark was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2012 when it celebrated its 100th anniversary.
Liverpool Football Club
Liverpool F.C. (LFC) is one of the most iconic football clubs in the world, distinguished by a 131-year history of unparalleled success. In less than a decade, FSG took LFC to the pinnacle of world football, winning every club trophy available, including the team’s first League title in 30 years, its sixth European Cup, and first ever FIFA Club World Cup, bringing the club’s total major trophies to 50. LFC’s Women's team have also been crowned English champions twice and have won the FA Youth Cup four times. In addition to its success on the pitch, LFC has one of the largest global footprints that includes 300 official supporters clubs in over 90 countries. Anfield Stadium has been the home of Liverpool Football Club since its formation in 1892 and under FSG’s stewardship the stadium has been restored with a redeveloped Main Stand that seats 8,500; one of the largest in European football. LFC is currently expanding its Anfield Road Stand, which could increase capacity by about 10% to approximately 61,000.
In March 2021, FSG acquired a controlling interest in the Pittsburgh Penguins, a premier National Hockey League franchise with a demonstrated history of success and a vibrant, passionate fan base. Founded in 1967, the Pittsburgh Penguins have won five Stanley Cups and are the first NHL team to become back-to-back champions in the salary cap era. The Penguins are tied for the most Stanley Cup championships among the non-Original six teams, and rank sixth overall for NHL championships. The team’s remarkable tradition of winning and thrilling play has solidified them as one of the most popular teams in the NHL, consistently leading the league in local TV ratings, social media, sponsorships, and community and youth hockey investments. The Penguins play at PPG Paints Arena, a multi-purpose venue that opened in August 2010 and is considered one of the top facilities in North America.
