Leeds United file more paperwork at Companies House for Paraag Marathe and John York

John York and Paraag Marathe have been confirmed as two people with significant control at Leeds United Football Club Limited in new paperwork filed at Companies House.

This update confirms, on 16 October, the two Leeds chiefs as people with a controlling influence at the football club and the business under which the paperwork is all filed.

The latest update from Companies House comes alongside Phil Hay’s update in The Athletic [17 October], in which he shared that control of the club had been switched to 49ers Enterprises officially last week.

Structure starting to take shape

As happens with any new ownership of a company, particularly in football, the paperwork which eventually gets filed through Companies House begins to paint a clear picture of who owns and is running the club, and how things will be run.

With Marathe and York now confirmed as people with significant control of the club, it begins to clarify the depth and strength of their roles and the way the club will operate under their guidance.

This new update from Companies House is the latest change to the documents after the official ownership and boardroom changes were registered, and it is expected the next news will come regarding the ownership of Elland Road.

Things are finally starting to take shape from an official business point of view at Leeds United, setting aside any uncertainty that may have remained around the structure of the club under the control of 49ers Enterprises.
