Has KKR qualified for the playoffs

According to KKR: New investor for Hertha BSC

Hertha fans can look forward to a new investor soon

Hertha BSC continues to upgrade economically. After the strategic partnership with the private investment company KKR, the next investor is now apparently on the mat. According to reports, the deal with a German entrepreneur is almost perfect.

This reports the "image". Accordingly, the Berliners have been negotiating for weeks with the entrepreneur and billionaire who emigrated to Hong Kong, who, according to the report, will invest six million euros in Hertha.

"It is true that we are holding talks. But there is still nothing more to say about it," said Finance Boss Ingo Schiller. The partnership should supposedly be perfect within the next two weeks.

Contact via KKR

"Bild" reported on the interest of the entrepreneur from Hong Kong in mid-July. The billionaire is said to have developed interest in Hertha through contacts from KKR. In the case of net profits from Berlin, he would receive a fixed, negotiated interest rate and, moreover, get his investment back in full after the end of the contract.


As the newspaper now reports, the negotiated contract runs for at least seven years, only then does the sum have to be repaid. Berlin's equity capital will be strengthened with immediate effect and the club will have further room for maneuver, for example on the transfer market and in contract negotiations.
