In England, Eagle Football has 45% of the rights to the Crystal Palace, which does not make John Textor the majority partner, but a very relevant name in the management of the team. Currently, the club is in 14th place in the Premier Leagueaverage position since returning to the elite of English football, which took place in 2013. With the arrival of the North American group, the team did not win any titles.

Textor also has a strong investment in France, in Lyon. In 2022, after the acquisition of Botafogo, Eagle Football purchased 77.49% of the club for 800 million euros. At the time, the company arrived at the team to end a title drought, which had been going on for more than 11 years.

Last season, with the arrival of Textor's investments, Lyon ended the Call 1 in 7th place, being left out of European competitions. Now, in 2023/24, the team is in 10th position, with 25 rounds played. If the club finishes the competition in this way, the team will have its worst ranking in the national league in 28 years.

Finally, John Textor is also a majority partner in RWD Molenbeek, which competes in Belgium's first division. The team was promoted last season, with the local second division title, but is currently experiencing a delicate moment. In 15th place, the club is in the relegation zone and is fighting to remain in the elite.

In general, 'Eagle Football' has a club standard and, despite all the large investments, it has not yet had major results in football. When it comes to first division domestic leagues, Botafogo's campaign last season, which ended in 5th place, was the best result among the teams managed by John Textor, to date.
