The Mets announced in December 2019 that owners Fred and Jeff Wilson were looking to sell the majority of the team, which they need to be controlled since 2002. At the time, the Wilpons were in negotiations to sell out to 80% of the team to Cohen. However, the deal fell through in February when Cohen wanted immediate control of the franchise, while the Wilpon family wanted to stay with the Mets for five years.

The value of the Mets is 2.4 billion in Forbes' annual sports franchise valuations, representing the sixth-most valuable MLB franchise. The Wilpon group acquired the team for $392 million.
