Derby’s American owners have sold the English second-tier club to a local
businessman who made a fortune through the “Candy Crush Saga” mobile game.
Former Detroit Pistons executive Andy Appleby fronted the takeover seven years
ago by a group of Americans, including investors in baseball, basketball and
hockey franchises.
Within months of their takeover, Derby was relegated from the Premier League and
the team has stayed in the Championship since 2008.
Now life-long Derby fan Mel Morris, who bought a 22 percent stake in the team
earlier this year, has become the sole owner. Morris stepped down last year as
chairman of King Digital, the New York Stock Exchange-listed company which
created “Candy Crush.”
