Influential Jordanian family are planning major investment in Bristol Rovers


BRISTOL Rovers are at an advanced stage in talks with a Jordanian family interested in making a significant investment in the club, the Bristol Post understands.

Rovers have continually made public a desire to attract new investment and recently confirmed that as many as 12 groups of potential investors had expressed interest, which failed to materialise into anything significant.

Yet, the Post has learned that Rovers have been in ongoing discussions with the Al-Qadi family, who are significant shareholders in the Arab Jordan Investment Bank (AJIB), for several months and an announcement that a deal has been signed is believed to be imminent.

The family, which is considered one of the most influential in Jordan due to their banking and tourism interests, is headed by Abdulkader Al-Qadi, who founded AJIB in 1978.

The Post understands that the investment is a "family commitment" but that one of Al-Qadi's three sons, Wael, would take a lead in managing the investment at board level.

Currently working as an assistant general manager at AJIB, Wael has a keen interest in football and has held positions at both the Jordan Football Association and the Asian Football Development Project, which was founded by FIFA presidential candidate HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein.

He is a keen Chelsea supporter as a result of being schooled in London as a youngster before going on to complete his education in America at firstly, Boston University, and then, Harvard Business School.

Several members of the family are expected to be present at the club's annual Valentine's Ball tomorrow night after taking in Rovers' League Two game against Morecambe at the Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon

It's not hard is it? I think well have to wait until all the other clubs in England have been bought up by sugar daddies, when we are the only club left without a rich owner then we will get ours.

Brent has absolutely no intention of selling Argyle until he's extracted his pound of flesh and then some, buying the stadium off PCC will be the next step in his 'masterplan'.

I did hear on the radio in the week that things will get even tougher for L1 and L2 clubs as promotion up the pyramid will get ever so more difficult and that will be down to the obscene parachute payments the relegated Premiership sides will receive soon. English football will become a two divisional affair (if not already).

There is more chance of Exeter City getting foreign investment before Argyle.
