Former Disney CEO, Facebook co-founder involved in Chelsea bid: Stephen Pagliuca releases full details of his consortium

American private equity investor Stephen Pagliuca has released details of all the high-level executives and businessmen who have joined his consortium to buy Chelsea.

In a statement, he said: "Mr Pagliuca and Mr Tanenbaum are joined by other leaders in business, media, and technology.

"These include former Disney CEO Bob Iger and renowned journalist Willow Bay; Facebook Co-Founder Eduardo Saverin and businesswoman Elaine Saverin; B Capital co-founder Raj Ganguly; co-owner of the Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Los Angeles Football Club Peter Guber; global venture capitalist Jim Breyer, of Breyer Capital; investor John Burbank; and serial tech entrepreneur Div Turakhia.

"In addition, the group welcomes the endorsement and support of the True Blues Consortium, an organisation dedicated to Chelsea FC and focused on representing fan interests for the club."

We must admit, that is a pretty stacked consortium with business leaders from the worlds of sports, investment and technology. Pagliuca himself is the co-owner of Boston Celtics (an NBA team) and Serie A club Atalanta.

He remains in the race to buy Chelsea along with four other bidders.
