This week, the 20 Minutes

sports team

has chosen to dissect for you the subject of timeshare in football – a theme that is inversely more fascinating than its statement – ​​after the takeover of part of FC Lorient by the American billionaire Bill Foley, already owner of the Bournemouth club in the Premier League.

Also underway at OL, where the new local sheriff, John Textor, also owns shares in the Crystal Palace club, this phenomenon is tending to develop at breakneck speed in the football business of the 21st century.

In five years, we have gone from 35 timeshares to 78, for more than 200 clubs concerned.

What are the consequences on the economy of football and on sports equity?

We debate it with our sleuths of 20 Minutes.

The concept of “Mixed Zone”?
