Mesut Özil, one of the foreign investors who acquired 50% of the Necaxa club, boasted in his social networks the link that will unite him to the Rayos through the companies Al Tylis and Sam Porter, which have experience in investments both in the English Premier League as well as the NBL (Australia) and MLS (USA). 

“Very excited to be a part of the @ClubNecaxa owner group and even more excited about the one-of-a-kind NFT we are offering !! You can own a piece of the team with me!”, He wrote on his Twitter. “First time in professional sports: this NFT will give you a real 1% stake in the team! Who is in?? Let's be partners!!”, he added in another tweet.

The investment group also includes actress Eva Longoria and model Kate Upton, as well as Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander; Miami Heat player Victor Oladipo; former basketball players Richard Hamilton and Shawn Marion and Olympic champion skier Bode Miller.

The president of Liga MX, Mikel Arriola, announced last Monday that the owners of the 18 teams of the Mexican First Division approved the sale of 50 percent of Necaxa to foreign investors.

"Foreign investment in the Necaxa club was approved, this implies that the current owner (Ernesto Tinajero) does not lose control but 50% of foreign capital enters," Arriola explained at a press conference. The businessman Ernesto Tinajero acquired the Necaxa club in 2014, which is based at the Victoria Stadium in Aguascalientes, in central Mexico.

“The investment of our new strategic partners has been unanimously approved. It is a historic day for sport in Mexico in general, we mark a new beginning, strengthened and with renewed illusions, with the firm commitment to return Necaxa to the fore as a benchmark institution within national and international football", said the club .

Necaxa finished last in Liga MX

Necaxa finished the Guard1anes Clausura tournament in last place with 11 points, the result of two wins, five draws and 10 losses. As reported by Arriola, Tinajero will maintain control of the decisions of Necaxa, which under his mandate has stood out for being a specialist in signing players at low prices to sell them more expensive.

Among his latest big sales of soccer players is that of Chilean Edson Puch, who was signed for $ 550,000 and sold to Pachuca for $ 7.5 million.
