Acquirer: Private Individuals, EIS
Deal type: Growth Capital
Following on from the success of the Burnley Football Club campus University College of Football and Business (UCFB) approached ASA to help them raise capital to open a campus at Wembley Football Stadium.
The Directors of Wembley Stadium had committed in excess of £20 million for the redevelopment and refurbishment of the internal area where UCFB intended to open its campus and a lease had been agreed with Wembley. ASA worked with the founders of UCFB to raise capital from high net worth individuals into a tax efficient enterprise investment scheme to provide development and working capital for the new venture - University College of Football and Business, Wembley.
