Chiefs' quarterback Patrick Mahomes, American Football tight-end Travis Kelce, and golfer Rory McIlroy have teamed up with a group of elite athletes to invest in the Alpine Formula One team, which is owned by Renault. Popular football player Juan Mata, a former member of Manchester United, also became one of the investors.
In addition to him, Anthony Joshua and Liverpool football player Trent Alexander-Arnold have become investors. The most interesting to us, Rory McIlroy showed that in addition to golf, he is also a big fan of F1. The Northern Irishman is happy to be part of such a big project.
His huge passion for sports, investing, and the desire to be the best showed itself this time as well. We have no doubt that Rory's team will be successful in the future. “Passion for excellence on the golf course has led me to admire the same pursuit in Formula 1.
Partnering with Otro Capital in Alpine F1 is an exhilarating venture that unites my love for sports, competition, and the relentless drive to be the best”.
Anthony Joshua, a popular boxer, is also happy to be a part of this important story.
Joshua has had the opportunity to invest in this team for a long time. He didn't have many dilemmas about whether to do it. This group of investors, which consists of a large number of athletes, believes that Alpine will be a team that many will respect, even though they are already popular.
“The chance to strategically invest with Otro Capital in Alpine was an opportunity I couldn’t ignore. The heritage of the team, mixed with the global growth of Formula 1 as a sport and brand made this a very serious proposition.
I am excited to start this journey with Otro and a great group of fellow investors and hope to help the team achieve its full potential”.
