Dundalk FC has confirmed that that a local consortium has acquired the Lilywhites from investment firm Peak6 after almost four years of ownership.

Peak6 took ownership of the Louth club in 2018 and oversaw a successful period with the club claiming two Premier Division titles, two FAI Cups, two President’s Cups, the Unite the Union Champions Cup as well as qualification for the Europa League group stages on two occasions.

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

“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.”
