Sale of Bologna FC made official to investors group led by Joe Tacopina

Bologna FC has made it official on its website that it has been sold to an American group led by the lawyer Joe Tacopina, with whom Montreal Impact owner/president Joey Saputo is associated with. An initial agreement was found earlier this month and also confirmed the Impact president.

The deadline to finalize the deal was October 15th which was obviously met with the Italian club's announcement. Tacopina was to the new board of directors as club president with Luke Bergamini and Piergiorgio Bottai as Directors (Consigliere).

No official updates on Joey Saputo's place on the board but a recent tweet by Italian journalist Daniele Labanti indicates that he will be part of it.

Sources advised me that Joey Saputo is expected to arrive in Bologna on Thursday.
