Former Los Angeles Dodger Mr. Frank H. McCourt Buys Olympique Marseille Football Club

Mr. Frank H. McCourt, Jr. and Mrs. Margarita Louis-Dreyfus announced the completion of the acquisition of the Olympique de Marseille football club by Mr. McCourt. Mr. Jacques-Henri Eyraud provides from that day the presidency of the club's management board. 

Mr. McCourt said: " Today opens a new chapter in the great history of Olympique de Marseille. A chapter of which I am proud and honored to be a part.

"I have no doubt that the challenges OM had to face on the field and off had a negative impact on the fans of the club in recent years. 

"despite the difficulties, fans have been loyal and steadfast support, demonstrating the power of sport and the affection they have for our club. 

" I want to tell the fans: "I you sincere thanks for your continued support. And perhaps more importantly, I wish to assure you of my commitment to make every effort to be worthy of your support and our sporting ambitions. " 

" As guarantor of the unity of OM, it is now my duty to raise ourselves to the highest ranks of European football. It is an obligation and we will. We have a clear vision of success and an ambitious plan to achieve it. We have the resources and courage to invest and take decisions and necessary measures. The strategy that we set ourselves require passion, commitment and tenacity. It will take strong leadership but also, at times, patience. I have complete confidence in Jacques-Henri Eyraud, the new CEO of OM, in its ability to implement our plan and to ensure the success of the club. This is a great time for all supporters of OM. I invite you to join us. Together we will put our club on the road to glory. "
