Dundalk FC can confirm that a local consortium has completed the acquisition of the club from PEAK6.

Negotiations were concluded on Wednesday evening to return the club to local hands after almost four years of ownership by a PEAK6-led group of investors.

During PEAK6’s tenure, the club won two SSE Airtricity League of Ireland titles, two FAI Cups, two FAI President’s Cups, the Unite the Union Champions Cup and also made history by becoming the first Irish club to qualify for the group stages of the UEFA Europa League on two occasions.

“We are incredibly proud of all we achieved with Dundalk FC over these past several years,” said Matt Hulsizer, co-founder and managing partner of PEAK6.

“We purchased Dundalk FC in 2018 because we love football and saw the potential to reinvigorate the team through an influx of capital and strategic leadership.

“During our tenure, we had the opportunity to get to know the town, the club, and most importantly, the passion that local fans have for the club.

“That’s why we’re so pleased to have found a group of buyers who have local ties and a deep-rooted history with Dundalk FC. I have no doubt they will continue to support the success of the club going forward, and we will continue rooting for the club’s success right alongside the fans.”

The local consortium would like to thank PEAK6 for their professionalism and diligence during the negotiations and wish them well in the future.

Further details, and plans for the 2022 season, will be unveiled next week with an emphasis on strengthening links with the fans and the local community.

This is an exciting moment in Dundalk Football Club’s long and proud history.

Here’s to a new beginning…
