MA ABOGADOS jointly with BIBIUM CAPITAL have led the advising of SEVILLA FC along the structuring, negotiating and closing of the EUR108 million new financing transaction together with EUR24 million refinancing, that consolidates the club’s financial stability allowing it to undertake its future strategic plans with full effectiveness.

The financing transaction, backed by international investors, has involved Goldman Sach´s bank arranging in the capital markets and includes:

  • 10-year USD65 million + EUR28 million term loan facilities;
  • a 5-year term loan totalling EUR20 million; and
  • a EUR24 million refinancing of existing debt facilities.

This senior secured indebtedness has achieved an investment grade by a reference international rating agency. This achievement positions SEVILLA FC on a par with the world’s leading professional football clubs, and in an unbeatable position to take on new challenges in the future.

These facilities are backed exclusively by the Club’s media revenue and will allow SEVILLA FC to increase and expand its revenues across a range of business functions including digital transformation, marketing, physical and online retail. The new senior indebtedness fully preserves the integrity and flexibility in the management of the Club, allows for new additional future borrowing against the arranged structure itself – should this prove necessary – and enables the structuring of new financing for potential infrastructure transformation projects, such as the new stadium.

Such a cross border and complex transaction successfully negotiated and closed by the lawyers of MA ABOGADOS and the financial advisers of BIBIUM, both on behalf of the SEVILLA FC, evidences and consolidates their Sports Legal and Finance team as leaders of the ongoing and growing Spanish Football finance transaction markets.

We would like to express our deepest pride to our MA ABOGADOS Sports finance team lead by Sofía Acuña (partner), Victoria Villagrán (senior associate) and Andrés Moreno (associate), and to BIBIUM CAPITAL team lead by Gonzalo Avila Lizeranzu (managing director) and Oscar Candela (senior associate).
