US Real Estate Investment Bankers Russel C. Platt and Clifton V. Onolfo buy and stabilize CF Reus Deportiu SAD and build LaLiga 123 sized 18.000 seat Gaudian Stadium Complex and Entertainment Mall with City of Reus and Catalonia.

While Club De Futbol Reus Deportiu has been the over achieving small club consolidating itself in La Liga 123 over the last three years, the climb was just too high for departing ownership. We thank Mr Joan Oliver for cooperation in helping transition the Club to a new owner's group and mostly for his lifting of the club from 2B to 2A and dreaming with all of CF Reus and its fans.


After the Barcelona match last evening, CF Reus Deportiu has sold 99.7% of its shares to Russell Platt, a founder of Morgan Stanley Real Estate and Chairman of Forum Partners and Greppon Advisor, and Clifton Onolfo, former Owner of Connecticut Wolves SC of USL Div 2 and Global Cities Co-Investment Real Estate Capital Markets Fortune.


‘A time for stabilization’ of CF Reus and building the Stadium Complex Gaudian Style with 18.000 seats to accommodate a steady Club in LaLiga 123 and potentially beyond.


We must get the Club immediately into compliance for the LaLiga, players and employees to show respect to the game. We must talk with all the Club’s suppliers and vendors to put a new ownership and management team and purchase order processes with singular Board Budgeted approval process. Player trading must become a money maker from such a special and large 250 CF Reus youth players academy.
