NEW YORK, DUBLIN and MILAN, May 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brera Holdings PLC ("Brera Holdings" or the "Company", Nasdaq: BREA) announced that it plans to expand its acquisition strategy to include other team and individual sports, in addition to football, which will remain its core business. This strategy may include the outright acquisition of men’s or women’s clubs or teams or simply the management or sponsorship of such clubs or teams in order to accelerate the development of their sports activity.
The Company expects this will mainly be accomplished through Brera rebranding, but the Company also intends to set up a division that will work on the re-empowerment of established clubs while maintaining their original brand.
“Football remains our core business, but we want to build a system capable of exploring advantageous opportunities in all sports. Our teams will continue to play in several countries from different continents carrying our brand and our principles,” says Brera Holdings CEO, Sergio Scalpelli.
