Trent Alexander-Arnold becomes an investor in the Alpine Formula 1 alongside Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney

Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold has joined Wrexham co-owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney in becoming an investor in the Alpine Formula 1 team.

The sports, media, and entertainment-focused Investment Manager, APEX facilitates this strategic investment in Formula 1 from Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Notably, other prominent sports figures, including golf legend Rory McIlroy, former world heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua, and tennis player Alexander Zverev, are also part of this venture.

This group, created by Otro Capital, bought a 24 percent stake in Alpine through a $200 million deal in June.

The initial agreement included actors Reynolds, McElhenney, and Michael B Jordan, who have various football affiliations in the UK, notably with Wrexham and Bournemouth. Furthermore, NFL stars Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce are also part of this investment endeavor.

Alexander-Arnold has said of the project: “I am delighted to lead an investor group investing in Alpine F1. The opportunity is very exciting, F1 is growing massively worldwide and I look forward to contributing to that growth. The sport brings together teamwork, pinpoint accuracy and innovation in a pressure-filled environment, these are aspects of my game we have in common.”

In the 2022 Formula 1 season, Alpine secured a fourth-place finish in the constructors’ championship. However, in the current season, they have fallen behind competitors such as McLaren and Aston Martin.

Despite this, the team continues to pursue goals, with Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly confirmed as drivers for the 2024 season. Additionally, the team’s valuation currently stands at an impressive $900 million (£741 million).
