Singer Alexandre Pires will invest in a Brazilian football club. The TAF Group, which the musician owns alongside his partner Thiago Sampaio, made visits to two clubs in Goiás, Aparecidense and Anápolis, in recent days. The intention is to invest from the 2024 season onwards.
The TAF Group (Thiago, Alexandre and Futebol) was created to manage sports companies. Partner of Alexandre Pires, businessman Thiago Sampaio confirmed the visit to the clubs in Goiás and revealed investment plans.
“We visited Aparecida de Goiânia this Tuesday (13) to learn about the Aparecidense project. The club is transforming into SAF and we listened to the project for the coming years.”
– The TAF Group intends to have a football club in Brazil and Portugal, and Aparecidense could be one of the opportunities, as well as Anápolis, where there was also a visit to get to know the club, but nothing has been finalized – he stated .
TAF is a merger of TCS SPORTS and musician Alexandre Pires. Despite talking about buying clubs in Portugal, the company informed that it is part of the project, but there is no negotiation yet. One of the athletes managed by the company, midfielder Fernando Reges, from Sevilla, may also be one of the investors in SAF that will be acquired by the group.
The clubs visited by the TAF Group compete for the elite of Goiás football and in 2023 they reached the semi-finals. Aparecidense, in addition to the State, will play in Série C of the Brasileirão for the third year in a row next season.
Born in Uberlândia, Alexandre Pires has a strong relationship with football. Every year, he and his brother Fernando hold Football Against Hunger, at Parque do Sabiá, a charity event that brings together several celebrities. The event has already had illustrious presences such as Ronaldinho Gaúcho, Neymar, Kaká, Vini Júnior, Romário, Bruno Henrique, Petkovic, among others.
