Another day, another potential name entered the bidding for the Washington Commanders.
Boston Red Sox and Liverpool Football Club owner John Henry is viewed as a possible bidder for the Washington Commanders, according to Josh Kosman of the New York Post.
Henry’s Fenway Sports Group recently hired Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to help sell Liverpool. That deal could bring between $4 and $5 billion in return for Henry.
Per the Post, Henry could already have a deal to sell Liverpool to an “unnamed Qatar-based investor.”
If Henry can close that deal, that would give him the capital to be a serious bidder for the Commanders, particularly if Jeff Bezos and Jay-Z are involved in the bidding process.
The Commanders could fetch anywhere from $5.6 billion to $8 billion.
Henry is also involved in NASCAR and is listed as the owner of the No. 17 car driven by Chris Buescher.
Henry, a self-made businessman and investor bought the Red Sox in 2002. Boston has enjoyed unprecedented success under Henry’s ownership. After famously not winning a World Series since 1918, the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004 and have won a total of four in Henry’s 20 years of ownership. Before he owned the Red Sox, Henry briefly owned the then-Florida Marlins.
Henry also owns multiple newspapers.
Henry is a longtime successful sports owner with a history of success. That’s something Washington fans have dreamt about for 23 years.
