Several sources have ‘confirmed’ that Liverpool are due to be partnering with Disney and a new video obtained by Empire of the Kop appears to confirm the reports are real.
According to reports from AF: ‘The American multinational entertainment and media conglomerate have agreed a deal with FSG to purchase a 30% stake in LFC‘.
It’s unknown whether this deal is set to start immediately or during the summer but with the latest leaked video being released – it looks like this could all commence sooner rather than later.

Have a look at the leaked video here:
From the footage all the integrated LFC TV content on Disney+ for beta testers (in a similar way to how the platform first used Marvel, Star Wars etc.), looks fairly recent.
Quite what this means for the club long-term is yet to be known but who knows what could come next? Will we see a mini-Anfield at Disneyland? Perhaps even a Mighty Red Animated series coming soon?
Speaking exclusively with Empire of the Kop, Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard has said: “Looks like a great deal for the club, I’ve spoken with Jurgen and it sounds like he’s on board to add a couple of Mickey Mouse ears to his baseball cap too.
“This is a really exciting new era for the club and one I can’t wait to be part of when I can leave Villa and come home”.
Expect there to be plenty more news coming today but all of it before 12pm.
