Farrers advise supporters on acquisition of Wycombe Wanderers Football Club

Author: Anthony Turner

Farrer & Co has advised Wycombe Wanderers Trust Limited on its acquisition of Wycombe Wanderers Football Club from previous owner Steve Hayes.

Wycombe Wanderers are now one of the few Football League clubs in the country to be owned by their own supporters. Under the terms of the deal, the Trust has acquired all of the voting shares in the Club, and has incorporated a separate holding company which will be responsible for the Club's stadium (Adams Park), its Training Ground and the heritage aspects of the Club.
