Bordeaux in American hands

The media company M6 Metropole Television sold the French football club for 100 million euros to the Los Angeles-based General American Capital Partners.

M6 Metropole Television was, since 1999, owner of Bordeaux. The company hoped the glory days of the eighties to bring back. Bordeaux then won, with players like Alain Giresse, Jean Tigana and Marius Tresor, three league titles and two times the French cup.

A new succesperiode remained to a large extent. Bordeaux conquered in 2013 the national championship and in 2009 the French cup.
