Czech company purchased 27 percent stake in West Ham

A syndicate led by Daniel Kretinsky, co-owner of Sparta Prague, and Pavel Horsky has purchased a major share in West Ham United. A 27 percent interest in football club West Ham United has been purchased by a Czech investment company. Following the purchase, Sparta Prague co-owner Daniel Kretinsky and his colleague Pavel Horsky will be named to the Premier League club’s board of directors.

West Ham said in a statement: “The agreement is a further improvement to the club’s capital structure which will initially enable the reduction of its long-term debt and the ability to continue to direct funds generated into other key areas of focus, continuing the positive progress made at West Ham United in recent years.”

Kretinsky, who watched West Ham beat Liverpool 3-2 last weekend at London Stadium, said: “I am passionate about football. I greatly appreciate and respect the exceptional history and tradition of West Ham United as well as its loyal and passionate supporter base and also the highly inspiring role it plays in many social programmes and initiatives.”

“The development and growth of the club in recent years has been clear for everyone to see and I am delighted to be part of what I believe is a very exciting future ahead. Having been to London Stadium recently to watch David Moyes’ team, I know it is an incredible time to become part of the West Ham United family. I feel privileged to now have the opportunity to help everyone here build on the proud traditions of this great club.”

Hammers vice-chairman Karen Brady said: “On behalf of the board I am very pleased to welcome Daniel Kretinsky, Pavel Horsky and 1890s holdings a.s to West Ham United. We are always looking to continue to progress and Daniel’s involvement brings investment which strengthens the club’s position, and in turn will assist in the development of the club’s key areas of focus.”

“[Joint chairmen] David Sullivan and David Gold have always been very open about finding the right investors to join them on the journey as custodians of West Ham United, and Daniel’s strong business acumen and football experience will be of huge benefit to the club. We very much look forward to working with him and Pavel.”
