Williams, Hollywood actress invest in new women’s team

Serena Williams is part of a group that will fund a new Los Angeles-based women’s team ahead of the twenty twenty two National Women’s Soccer League season.

The Tennis great joins several other high-profile women, including Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman, in setting up the female-majority group called Angel City, but the team’s name and home venue are yet to be decided.

NWSL commissioner, Lisa Baird, says the league has long sought an LA-based team, which already has a massive interest in women’s football as there is currently no California-based team in the league.

Williams’ husband, Alexis Ohanian, who is the co-founder of tech company, Reddit, along with their two-year-old daughter, Olympia, are listed as co-owners of the group.
