For more than a year, we have worked tirelessly alongside Mayor Steinberg to identify a new lead investor that further strengthens our bid to bring Major League Soccer to Sacramento.
While we held discussions with several potential investors, our focus was, and remains, on finding the right lead investor whose vision for our club and our city best aligns with ours.
We are thrilled to announce today that we have found that new lead investor in Ron Burkle.
Mr. Burkle is an exceptional leader and businessman, a champion sports owner, a dedicated philanthropist, and someone with a deep appreciation for Sacramento. He is the ideal person to lead the next chapter of our club.
Thank you to our proud supporters for their commitment throughout this process. Though our work is not done and our ultimate goal has not been reached yet, I am confident that no club is better prepared for MLS than Sacramento Republic FC.
