Bristol Rovers sold to Jordanian family

Bristol Rovers

Bristol Rovers are currently eighth in League Two, one point outside the play-off places

League Two promotion-chasers Bristol Rovers have been taken over by the Jordanian Al-Qadi family.

Jordanian Football Association member Wael Al-Qadi has been named club president, while Steve Hamer replaces Nick Higgs as chairman.

Hamer was previously Swansea City chairman between 1997-2000.

In October, former director Colin Sexstone said a takeover may help the club move to a new stadium, almost 11 years after plans were first announced.
