Advisor to Kings Park Capital on their investment in STACK

About the Parties

STACK is poised to spearhead its expansion with STACK Middlesbrough, scheduled to open in spring 2024. This move marks the beginning of a series of site launches, with STACK Lincoln already in the construction phase and the highly anticipated St James’ STACK, a joint venture with Newcastle United that will establish a Fan Zone by the stadium, reflecting the brand’s innovative approach to leisure and community engagement.

STACK’s expansion strategy is multifaceted, consisting of innovative container parks in Carlisle, Manchester, and Sheffield together with several development projects aimed at repurposing vacant retail spaces, breathing new life into city centres in locations such as Lincoln, Durham, Bishop Auckland, Whitley Bay and Northampton. This dual approach underscores STACK’s commitment to creating both pioneering leisure environments and revitalising urban landscapes.

Founded in 2007, Kings Park Capital is a private equity manager that only invests in the European leisure sector. KPC’s investment will be used to accelerate STACK’s growth and realise the team’s vision of delivering these transformative projects.

They aim to invest between £3-15 million in European companies with a differentiated offering, proven business models and demonstrable growth potential.
