Red Bull to expand into Eredivisie

Red Bull are looking to continue to grow their brand in world football by “giving wings” to a small club in the Netherlands.

The energy drink company already owns a number of football clubs including Red Bull New York, Red Bull Salzburg, Red Bull Brasil and RB Leipzig.

All four clubs have benefited from their involvement with the Austrian company in one way or another – with RB Leipzig having surpassed all expectations as they currently sit second on the Bundesliga standings, having been promoted from the 2. Bundesliga last season.

Speaking to BNR Radio, Red Bull Netherlands director Jan Smilde said: “That would be my wish. That’s very interesting for us.

“Our philosophy is to own it all. So the club, the name and the stadium. 

“We are looking for a club that could use our help. We look like a smaller club that we give wings.

“A club like PSV is off example. When we started RB Leipzig For example, they were still playing in the fifth division, but now they are second in the Bundesliga.”
