Ronan Keating has denied rumours that Boyzone are in talks to buy English football team Chorley FC.

This comes after the non-league side had said that negotiations between the club and the band had taken place for them to become shareholders and "the face of the club". 

 

Chorley FC released this statement,  “This collaboration with Boyzone is part of ongoing discussions that could potentially see them becoming the face of the football club". 

“This is a game-changer that has the potential to bring our town into the limelight like never before, generating a buzz and publicity that will shine a bright light on Chorley and the local area". 

“We are bursting with excitement and gratitude for this incredible opportunity. Boyzone’s presence at the game will undoubtedly create an electric atmosphere, filled with music, joy and a shared love for football and a close knit, family community". 

Keating Denies Takeover Rumours 

However, Ronan Keating poured cold water on these rumours, after a fan had shared a post via X, asking if rumours of the takeover, and a Boyzone comeback tour were true.

"No Sarah it's not", Keating replied. 

Despite this, Keating is set to attend Chorley's FA Trophy clash with Solihull Moors tomorrow, alongside Shane Lynch and Keith Duffy, as well as former Westlife singer Brian McFadden.

Former Boyzone singer Mikey Graham, has stated that he knew nothing about this alleged takeover plan, adding that it may just be Shane Lynch who is involved in these plans. Graham is not mentioned on the statement. 

“First I heard of it. Maybe it’s something Shane has done? Not sure about the others", Graham told the Irish Sun. 

The club's chief operating officer Tom Clarke had said,  “We’re looking at continuing ongoing negotiations in relation to their involvement with the club and ultimately becoming a shareholder within the club and the face of Chorley Football Club, effectively". 

“Shane has attended a few games, loved what we are doing, and it kind of evolved from there really. They’ve got really excited about it and are coming down on Saturday". 

The club's Victory Park currently holds 4,100 supporters, and they lie sixth in the National League North.
