Two-time Super Bowl Champion  Malcolm Jenkins has revealed he has a minority stake in the club.

Speaking about his minority investment in Burnley as part of the ALK Capital investment group that took over in December 2020, during his visit to the Lancashire club, the three-time Pro Bowler believes that the club is the perfect fit for him and the values that are integral to all his business ventures.

Jenkins, a 12-year NFL veteran, who remains an active player with the New Orleans Saints said: “I’m excited to enter this new relationship, as Burnley FC is known for its tenacity, work ethic, good sportsmanship and efficient operational infrastructure. It’s a great fit for me personally and my company to invest in the growth of the sport alongside a historic organization that aligns with our company values.

I think the club’s doing a great job with some of the updates around the stadium and to see the vision of where they want to go in creating a venue that’s not only a great place to come and watch a game is really exciting.”

Alan Pace, Chairman of Burnley FC, added:

Malcolm has a wealth of high-level experience, not only as an elite sportsman, but through his successful business and philanthropic enterprises. We’re thrilled to have him as part of our investment group and look forward to him helping our efforts to develop the club both on and off the pitch.”

Jenkins, who last won the Super Bowl with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017, was in the UK last weekend visiting the Turf Moor and attended the Clarets’ defeat to Manchester City.
