Budge was disclosed as being the sole director of BIDCO 1874, a consortium trying to buy Edinburgh-based football club Hearts out of administration, in early 2014. A majority shareholding in the club, which was previously owned by Lithuanian businesses run by Vladimir Romanov, was sold to BIDCO 1874 in May 2014. Budge made several changes at the club immediately after taking control, including the appointment of Craig Levein as Director of Football and Robbie Neilson as Head Coach.
