Fenway Sports Group has released the names of shareholders with more than ten per cent at Liverpool, revealing that the club has many smaller owners.

Only two companies hold a stake higher than ten per cent – John W Henry, and The New York Times, which has a 16.58% stake in Liverpool.

“The economic interest in this company is held by a range of investors, including [Liverpool chairman] Tom Werner,” a statement from Fenway Sports Group said.


“Those holding more than a ten per cent interest are John Henry and The New York Times Company (which is quoted on the New York Stock Exchange).

“John Henry and Tom Werner are generally responsible for the management of Fenway Sports Group.”

One of the minority shareholders at Liverpool is LeBron James, who requested as part of a promotional deal with Fenway Sports Group that he be given a small holding of shares at Anfield.
