A record sale in the NFL

The Washington Commanders from the National Football League (NFL) are going to a new ownership group for a record sum.

A consortium led by investor Josh Harris agreed with the previous owners Dan and Tanya Snyder on Friday (local time) to sell the football team, according to the TV broadcaster ESPN, for a record sum of 6,05 billion dollars (around 5,6, XNUMX billion euros).

In August of last year, the Denver Broncos were sold for a then-record sum of $4,65 billion. “We are extremely pleased to have agreed a sale of the Commanders franchise with local Josh Harris and his impressive group of partners. We look forward to the sale closing soon and to supporting Josh and the team in the years to come,” Dan and Tanya Snyder said in a statement. The NFL still has to approve the sale, but this is considered a formality.

Josh Harris will join the third US sports team. He also owns shares in the Philadelphia 76ers basketball team and the New Jersey Devils ice hockey team. The Commanders have missed the playoffs the past two years, most recently making it out of the first round in 2005.
