KPMG Law and KPMG advise Eintracht Frankfurt on acquisition of shares in Dreieich Sportstätten Betriebs- und Marketing GmbH

KPMG Law Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH (KPMG Law) and KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft (KPMG) advised Eintracht Frankfurt Stadion GmbH on the structuring and implementation of the acquisition of shares in Dreieich Sportstätten Betriebs- und Marketing GmbH (DSBM).

Eintracht has acquired a majority stake in DSBM. KPMG advised Eintracht on the transaction structure and KPMG Law on its legal implementation. KPMG Law worked with a cross-location team from the areas of employment law, real estate and corporate law. KPMG advised with a Frankfurt-based International Transaction Tax team, which had already advised Eintracht on the merger with 1. FFC Frankfurt e.V.. In the run-up to the transaction, KPMG conducted a tax due diligence.

DSBM, based in Dreieich, is the owner and operator responsible for the modern and multifunctional Dreieich Sports Park. The Sportpark is located in Dreieich near Frankfurt and is a fully secured sports facility focused on the training of junior athletes in the field of soccer. On a total area of about 35,000 square meters, more than 100 athletes can be active at the same time. The stadium stands can seat up to 2,530 spectators.

Eintracht joins as majority shareholder and will use the Sportpark Dreieich in the future for its youth development work. In addition, youth teams of SC Hessen Dreieich e.V. will continue to use the Sportpark Dreieich. The previous co-partner, the Hans Nolte Family Foundation, remains a minority shareholder of DSBM.

Eintracht Frankfurt Stadion GmbH is a wholly owned subsidiary of Eintracht Frankfurt Fußball AG and markets and operates the home stadium of Eintracht Frankfurt’s 1st team, the Frankfurt “Deutsche Bank Park” arena, which seats 51,500 spectators.
