Nottingham Forest bought by Kuwaitis

Nottingham Forest confirmed last night that the Al-Hasawi family are the club’s new owners.

The Kuwaiti-based businessmen Fawaz, Abdulaziz and Omar Al-Hasawi have agreed to take control of the Championship club after reaching terms to buy the late Nigel Doughty’s controlling stake.

In a statement the Al-Hasawis said: “It is an honour and privilege for the Al-Hasawi family to assume control of this great club steeped in history and with the outstanding legacy left by its previous owner Nigel Doughty.”
