Qatar Sports Investments, the owner of top French football team Paris Saint-Germain, is buying almost 22% of Portugal’s SC Braga, a move that’s part of the trend toward multi-club ownership or part-ownership by financial vehicles.

The deal, QSI’s first football venture outside of PSG, is a long-term investment, the firm said Monday. Braga, which has long been overshadowed on and off the field by Portugal’s “Big Three” of Benfica, Sporting Lisbon and Porto, has potential for both financial and sporting growth, it said.
