  Walking into the Fuxing Stadium where the main building has been completed, Xia Jingxing's first impression is that it is magnificent.

  The design of the three-tier terraced stands looks well-organized. Although the seats have not been installed yet, Xia Jingxing already has a picture in his mind. Fans like a red ocean are waving flags and scarves, bursting into shouts and cheers like landslides and tsunami...

The president of the club, Puslow, who was walking in the front, gave an introduction to Xia Jingxing, such as which environmentally friendly materials were used in the new stadium, how the fans like it, and how the Liverpool City Hall is optimistic about and supports this "revival of Liverpool" project.

  In the past few years, not only the club's competitive performance has not been good, but the economic situation of the port city of Liverpool is also not good, so they all like the "rejuvenation" slogan put forward by Xia Jingxing.

   As for whether it is an advertisement for the revival of the industry, or whether it is really saving the declining cities and football clubs, it doesn't matter. No one will study it carefully. It is better to have hope than to have no hope.

   "The Fuxing Stadium is expected to be put into use in the 2011-2012 season. With our marketing strategy and the team's better performance, we are sure to keep the attendance rate above 60,000."

Puslow took a careful look at Xia Jingxing, and seeing that he had not raised any objections, he boldly continued, "The original plan was to design the largest stadium in Europe that could accommodate 100,000 spectators, but Liverpool is only the fifth largest stadium in the UK after all. Large cities with limited population…

  So, we slightly reduced the number of seats by 30,000, but it was not completely canceled, but the corresponding expansion space was reserved. "

Xia Jingxing didn't show any displeasure on his face. Originally, he built a stadium that could accommodate 100,000 people, which he specially released as a satellite of David. The purpose was to appease the fans' uneasiness caused by the club's change of ownership, and to reassure some fans. Resistance to moving the stadium.

  Now that everything is settled and the club's operations are back on track, there is no need to "please" the fans anymore.

  However, there are many hooligans in Liverpool football, and troubles are commonplace, and sometimes we have to be on guard.

  Thinking of this, Xia Jingxing asked, "The fans don't think I've deceived them, do they?"

  Puslow shook his head like a rattle, "No, they are only grateful."


  Under Xia Jingxing's questioning eyes, Puslow's tone was not as firm as before, and he stammered: "There is a small amount of noise, but most people are still very satisfied.

  A stadium with 70,000 people is better than Anfield Stadium with more than 50,000 people, and it can be regarded as the number one in the UK.

   Moreover, the Fuxing Stadium was also successfully selected as the football venue for the 2012 London Olympics, bridging the gap with Manchester United.

  If I were a fan, I wouldn't want more. "

  Xia Jingxing shook his head, then laughed and said, "Strictly speaking, I still broke my promise.

  But I would like to say that if our fans are more supportive, bring their families to watch the game, and increase the average attendance rate of the season to 80,000 to 90,000, then we will continue to expand the stadium.

  You have to do a good job in guiding public opinion in this area, not because we are reluctant to build a bigger stadium, but because the number of fans is not enough. "

  Pu Siluo quickly nodded and said yes, saying that he will pay close attention to the work in this area when he comes down.

After finishing this topic, Xia Jingxing turned his head to look at his sports investment consultant, Chamath, and said, "Chamath, you have worked hard for the past two years, the Warriors, Liverpool, and St. Louis Rams can be revived, thanks to you No."

  Chammas said with a smile: "If there is no sufficient ammunition provided by you, the boss, it is impossible for the three teams to complete the bottoming out so quickly.

  If my contribution is one point, then your support, the boss, is ninety-nine points. "

   "Haha, I have some new ideas and would like to ask for your opinion."

Seeing that Xia Jingxing and Chamas seemed to have something to discuss, Pusluo on the side led away the other executives of the Liverpool club very interestingly. Li Ying didn't need to avoid suspicion, and continued to stand beside Xia Jingxing, watching with great interest. The two talked about the operation and management of the sports club.

  After chatting for a while, Xia Jingxing changed the subject and said, "After the acquisition of the St. Louis Rams, Daxia Capital's investment in sports clubs will temporarily come to an end. What specific plans do you have next?"

   Chamas understood the subtext of the boss, and felt a little excited. Is he going to let himself go out and take charge of it alone?

  As a former executive of Facebook and an excellent investor who has done well in angel investment, Chamath actually has a dream of becoming a financial boss.

  If Xia Jingxing hadn't offered him an olive branch a few years ago, he might have already started his career in the field of financial investment.

  However, Xia Jingxing treated him well. He not only allowed him to complete three large-scale acquisitions in the sports world, but also allowed him to get in touch with many top network resources through the platform of Daxia Capital, for which he was full of gratitude.

   “As I said before, after working for me for a few years, I will help you start your own business.”

  Xia Jingxing said with a smile: "Man, I am very satisfied with the results of your work.

   So I decided to add another $400 million to the $100 million committed.

  A total of 500 million US dollars will be given to you. It is up to you to be a VC, PE or hedge fund, and there are no restrictions on the use of funds. "

  Chammas swallowed, feeling a happy feeling of being hit by a pie from the sky. Darren is too generous, and he would be several hundred million if he made a move.

   And he feels that this may be just the beginning, or an advanced version of the test. If he does a good job, there may be more funds and resources in the future.

   "This is what you deserve. I will never treat those who work for me badly."

  Xia Jingxing looked at Chamath with admiration, the acquisition of the Warriors and Liverpool and the subsequent operation and management. Although Chamath's performance can be called excellent, it is not amazing.

What really made him decide to spend 500 million U.S. dollars to support Chamas as the sub-fund manager of Daxia Capital was that the other party snatched up food and defeated another acquisition opponent at lightning speed-Kroenke, the major shareholder of Arsenal, Beautifully completed the acquisition of a 60% controlling interest in the St. Louis Rams.

What's more, Chamath turned around and went to find Kroenke, who was very unhappy because of the acquisition, and managed to persuade the other party to sell 40% of the Rams shares he held to a competitor. Daxia Capital has made Daxia Capital complete 100% holding of this American professional football team.

A total of 800 million U.S. dollars was used in the entire acquisition, of which 600 million U.S. dollars were loan funds. The real principal was only a mere 200 million U.S. dollars. If the valuation of the Rams can soar all the way to 50 to 6 billion U.S. dollars , I believe it is another classic PE acquisition case that earns dozens of times.

  So, Xia Jingxing felt that this Sri Lankan boy was a promising talent, and decided to include him in his capital circle of friends, becoming one of the spokespersons in front of Daxia Capital.

   "Daren, thank you! I will definitely do a good job and won't let you down."

  Xia Jingxing waved his hand, "Okay, there is no need to say more about the beautiful words. Remember, I only look at the results."

   After explaining a few more words, Xia Jingxing let Chamas leave.

  Li Ying didn't interrupt just now. She waited for Chamas to go far away and join Puslow and the others before asking in a calm and unhurried manner, "Is this person reliable?"

   "Like me, in the United States, I belong to the fringe people who are excluded from the inner circle by the top old white men."

   "Because of skin color?"

  Xia Jingxing asked back: "Otherwise?"

  Li Ying asked again: "Didn't Vision Capital develop very well on Wall Street?"

   "That's just the surface, Cuomo's mad dog became the governor of New York and started to trouble me again.

  Of course, it’s not real, but some people are reminding me that the rate of return of Envision Capital has dropped recently, but the fees are still so high, and they don’t like it. "
