Michael B. Jordan is now a minority shareholder in Premier League club, Bournemouth.
This week, a consortium led by American businessman Bill Foley completed the takeover of Bournemouth following the tenure of previous owner and chairman Maxim Demin.
Foley is the managing director of Black Knight Football and Entertainment, of which Jordan is an investor.
The actor is now one of the most recognisable celebrities in Hollywood following performances in monster hits like Black Panther and the Creed franchise.
He reportedly has a net worth of around $25 million currently.
Following the takeover, Foley said:
“I have tremendous respect for the passion and support the Bournemouth community shows for this club and believe that connection to the community is the foundation for success of any sports team.
“We will move forward with an ‘always advance, never retreat’ approach that has defined all of my endeavours.
“I am committed to work with the best football and business minds available to enhance player development, facilities, and the fan experience to put AFC Bournemouth in the best possible position to succeed.”
Bournemouth are currently 14th in the Premier League for the 2022/23 campaign, with 16 points taken from their opening 15 matches.
Jordan's directorial debut
Jordan will make his directorial debut in the third instalment of the Creed series which will be released in 2023.
In the first two Creed movies, Adonis Creed (Jordan), the son of Apollo Creed, battled 'Pretty' Ricky Conlan and then Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago who previously killed his father in the ring in Rocky IV.
He is forced to confront his past again in Creed III, as the trailer has revealed that his next foe will be a former friend who has been imprisoned for 18 years.
