The team’s leading investors are Portman, technology mogul Kara Nortman, gaming entrepreneur Julie Uhrman, and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. Ohanian is married to Serena Williams, who is part of a smaller investment group affiliated with the new NWSL team. The group has no shortage of female star power.
The Angel City group was inspired by the U.S. capturing the 2019 Women’s World Cup crown. Women’s soccer does not get nearly the recognition as their male counterparts. However, the group is striving to make that change. The team will be the first women majority-owned and led ownership group. If you aren’t already an NWSL fan, get ready to hop on the bandwagon. It’s moving quickly.
