Sport Capital Group PLC 
                   ("Sport Capital Group" or the "Company") 
 
                   Interim Results and Directors' Statement 
 
               For the period from 1st January to 30th June 2019 
 
Sport Capital Group announces the unaudited interim results of the for the 
first half of the current financial year. The financial statements which follow 
have not been reviewed by the Company's auditors. 
 
The Company made a pre-tax loss of GBP73,331 (period ended 30th June 2018 - (GBP 
22,396)) resulting in a net loss of GBP59,361; cash at bank at the period's end 
was GBP21,697 (period ended 30th June 2018 - GBP48,598). During the period, GBP60,000 
before expenses were raised from the issuance for cash of new shares. 
 
The Company previously announced that, at the beginning of the period under 
review, it had acquired for a nominal sum a controlling interest in a European 
professional soccer club and that, on subsequent investigation into the 
investment, it had decided to exit that investment at no loss to the Company's 
capital account. All costs associated with the transaction were settled during 
the period under review and are reflected in the financial statements presented 
below. The Directors are satisfied that no residual or contingent liabilities 
as a result of the Company's purchase and sale of this investment are liable to 
arise at a future date. 
 
In August of 2018, the Company announced that it had made an investment 
Kalahari Key Metals Exploration (Pty) Limited ("KKME"), a battery minerals 
exploration company, which explores in Botswana for nickel ("Ni.") and platinum 
group elements ("PGE"). KKME holds two prospecting licences within the Molopo 
Farms Complex, a large intrusion with proven potential for Ni. and PGE, 
straddling the border of Botswana and the Republic of South Africa. During the 
first half of the current year the Company made a follow-on investment, 
participating in a capital increase by KKME after positive results from an 
airborne survey of that company's licence areas, which was conducted in 2018. 
 
Late in 2018, Mr. John Treacy joined the Board of Sport Capital Group to 
represent the interests of an incoming shareholder to which the Company had 
agreed to issue new shares that were allotted in January 2019. With effect from 
the Company's last AGM on 28th June 2019, Mr. Treacy stepped down as a Director 
and I thank him for his contribution. I was able on the same occasion to 
welcome back to the Board Mr. Mark Jackson. 
 
The Company continues to seek prospective opportunities to this end, several 
potentially attractive investments are undergoing preliminary analysis and 
evaluation. The Directors look forward to informing shareholders and the market 
if, as and when such an opportunity crystallises.
