9: LeBron James - Liverpool FC

Football News

Still in Miami, basketball star LeBron James has been heavily linked with Beckham and some kind of partnership.

With the team being based there now, it’s safe to assume that he’s probably one of the backers.

But back in 2011, James bought a stake in Premier League Liverpool FC to help spread the brand in the States.

Apparently a fan of Liverpool, he went in not long after Fenway Sports Group came in and acquired Liverpool from Gillett and Hicks.
