KEH Sports are nearly the formal owners of Ebbsfleet United, with the club confirming on their official website that the Kuwaiti company have provided the first lot of funding for the Kent club.
The prospective new owners, led by Charlton Athletic saviour Peter Varney, have met outstanding players and staff wages for April and will allow the club to meet May’s payroll.
The Fleet were previously the first club owned by a website when MyFootballClub (MyFC) took the reigns in 2008 and Ebbsfleet soon won the FA Trophy, beating Torquay United 1-0 at Wembley.
The manager to lead his side to that famous victory was former Republic of Ireland defender Liam Daish, but he left the club earlier this month by mutual consent.
It has all gone downhill since that win at Wembley though with the Fleet being relegated from the Conference Premier in 2010.
They bounced straight back through the play-offs the following year but were relegated again this season, 15 points adrift from safety.
After the proposed offer by KEH Sports, over 95% of the MyFC members voted in favour of the sale.
The deal would see the Fleet with a £100,000 transfer budget for next season, along with a minimum playing budget of £8k for the next two campaigns.
