Shahid Khan, owner of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars and London’s Fulham FC, has made an offer to buy Wembley Stadium in London. That offer is reported to be around £1 billion, Khan paying £600 million for the stadium, and the FA continuing to run the £300 million Club Wembley hospitality business. The FA would also retain control of all national games and cup matches.
The potential deal immediately started speculation of Khan’s ambitions to one day host the World Cup and Super Bowl at Wembley.
Khan has said on record that the name of the stadium would not be changed, and he wants to keep the original mission of Wembley intact. Potential renovations to the venue being considered by Khan include adding a roof.
