MTK Global, the management company set up by alleged cartel boss Daniel Kinahan, has confirmed its move into football.
The expansion to create MTK Football follows the group’s domination of boxing since it was co-founded by Kinahan in 2012.
MTK Global have claimed ties with Kinahan were cut in 2017, though he recently stated he is independently advising a number of their fighters.

MTK have not yet responded to a query from Sportsmail over whether Kinahan would be advising any of their footballers, or if he would be involved in any other way.
The football division will be headed up by Danny Vincent, 36.
Kinahan, who has advised Tyson Fury and Billy Joe Saunders, has no criminal convictions but has been named in the High Court of Ireland as a senior figure in organised crime, something he has denied.
He claims the allegations are part of a ‘campaign’ against him.
Kinahan was the subject of a recent BBC Panorama investigation, which revealed that he had not stepped away from boxing.
