SALT LAKE CITY – David Blitzer has added Danish soccer club Brøndby IF to his growing professional portfolio.

World-renowned Danish club Brøndby IF was purchased by Global Football Holdings (GFH), the investment vehicle for Blitzer. GFH purchased “just over 50 percent of the shares” from Jan Bech Anderson, who will still serve as chairman of the board, according to a recent article by Reuters.

Welcome To The Portfolio

Brøndby IF is the seventh European club to be purchased by Blitzer joining ADO Den Haag, Crystal Palace, G.D. Estoril Praia, FC Augsburg, SK Beveren, and AD Alcorcón.

Blitzer and his team will invest a reported $30 million into the Danish club. Currently, Brøndby IF finds itself in 10th place in the Superliga, only three places shy of the bottom of the league. Last season, they concluded in the fourth position.

Nevertheless, Blitzer and his team have proven to be capable of turning clubs around. Real Salt Lake enjoyed a successful 2022 season following the takeover of the club in January alongside current Utah Jazz owner Ryan Smith.

Real Salt Lake Ownership Blessing

Real Salt Lake cooperated in a different manner in 2022. The professionalism of the organization progressed, the stadium received much-needed attention and care, and the fanbase was acknowledged.

Blitzers’ involvement and his network have been terrific for Real Salt Lake. Shortly following the conclusion of the season, Real Salt Lake sent 15 players across the pond to various Blitzer-owned clubs in Europe. The opportunity for young players to train with professional organizations in Europe is priceless. Brøndby IF becomes the latest potential business partner for Real Salt Lake, fortunately.

Brøndby IF was founded in 1964; 54 years ago, and is the most successful Danish Club in the Superliga era. Brøndby IF has won the league 11 times and is the only Danish side to reach the semi-final of the UEFA Europa League.
