Josh Wander and Steven Pasko, the co-founders of 777 Partners, are in attendance for Everton’s Premier League game against Luton Town at Goodison Park this afternoon.
Wander and Pasko arrived in Liverpool earlier today and will attend their first Everton match since agreeing to buy the club.
It was announced two weeks ago that the American investment firm has an agreement to purchase Everton from Farhad Moshiri, subject to an approvals process.
Following that news, The Athletic revealed that 777 has also made a loan payment worth tens of millions to the Merseyside club. Given Everton’s pressing need for immediate funding, 777 lent them money on an interim basis to help with short-term working capital requirements and the construction of their new stadium at the Bramley-Moore Dock.
Everton have won their last two matches having struggled at the beginning of this season. Sean Dyche’s side sit 15th in the Premier League heading into the Luton game, with four points from their opening six games.
Everton, though, have yet to pick up a point at home this season, losing 1-0 to Fulham, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal.
In recent years, Wander and Pasko’s 777 has bought controlling stakes in Genoa, Standard Liege, Hertha Berlin, Red Star FC and Vasco da Gama as well as minority stakes in Sevilla and Melbourne Victory.
