BoyleSports to bid for William Hill’s UK retail business
BoyleSports is interested in buying some or all of the William Hill shops in the UK.
William Hill’s 1,400 shops are being sold by Caesars Entertainment, which has acquired the group but signalled it will offload the UK business and focus on its American operation. Analysts have suggested the UK business could fetch as much as £1.5bn (€1.75bn).
In a statement to the Sunday Independent, Boylesports said: “BoyleSports would certainly be interested in acquiring some or all of William Hill’s UK shops, or indeed any other opportunity that makes sense for our business.
