The Friedkins buy Cannes: the US group has produced five of the last 6 films that have won the Palme d'Or and is now investing in football in the city of the Festival. Ryan president, Dan without roles

AS Cannes writes a new page in its history with the Friedkin family
. With these words inserted in an official statement, the small French club in the city of Cannes announced the entry into the club of Friedkin group.
After Rome therefore the US family - which already operates in the sectors of motoring, entertainment and luxury hospitality - has purchased another team of which Ryan Friedkin, son of Dan, became president. Majority shareholders (2% of the capital will remain with the Sports Association chaired by Anny Courtade who will continue to manage the women's and amateur sections) but no connection with the Giallorossi team. At least for now,

also because Cannes currently plays in the French fifth division. But tomorrow who knows, some
synergy
may be born.
Football on the Côte d'Azur
meanwhile he welcomed the Friedkin family with great participation, which in any case is not new to the environment but felt the need to give (and do) something for the city team. From the Croisette at the green rectangle the wheelbase was shorter than expected. The Friedkins have been at home in Cannes for some time, just think that produced five of the last six Palme d'Or-winning films; in order from 2017 to 2023: The Square, Parasite, Titane, Triangle of Sadness and Anatomy of a Fall. The ambition therefore is to become there, over time, winners not only with cinema.

"It's an exciting time to be joining such a legendary football club," new president Ryan Friedkin first said. Cannes and this part of France has always held a special place in our hearts, and I want to thank Mayor David Lisnard and Mrs Anny Courtade for giving my family this opportunity. We look forward to doing everything we can to ensure the club is competitive and do the fans and the city proud. The mayor of the city known more for the Festival than for its football achievements also assured that the sports project presented by the Friedkin family is very serious, coherent and ambitious. If the summer goal in yellow and red is to guarantee Jos Mourinho a stronger team than last season, in the Côte d'Azur the longer term one quickly bring Cannes back into the pros. The journey started, directed by Ryan - assisted by his brother Corbin who will also have an operational role - while his father Dan will remain totally focused on Roma. So for the Friedkin Group it's time for a new clapperboard for another sports film on a well-known and glossy but amateurish set, from a footballing point of view, like the one in Cannes.
