Alexis Ohanian, Serena Williams' husband, made a financial investment in the NWSL team Angel City FC two years ago. He is an active spokesperson for women's sports.
Ohanian made the decision to invest his money, and now he's a significant shareholder of Angel City FC. He went to the great American soccer player, Alex Morgan for advice.
In 2019, Ohanian went on a long Twitter rant about the achievements of women in sports, particularly soccer and tennis. He also addressed the issue of unequal pay in women's sports.
He tweeted, “Now that I think about it, how do I become an owner of an NWSL team?” to which Alex Morgan replied, “I can help you with that.” Then Ohanian responded, "DM, please!"
After talking to Morgan, Alexis Ohanian decided to invest in Angel City FC. Although it's unclear whether Ohanian's choice was impacted by their conversation, it's still a remarkable narrative.
These two were eventually referred to as rivals. He initially sought assistance from Morgan, but both of them found themselves in competition with one another in relation to their teams.
Ohanian is an investor in Angel City FC, a new NWSL team, which makes him directly challenged against Morgan, a NWSL player with the San Diego Wave FC. Despite their rivalry, they share a good bond outside sports.
In an interview, Morgan talked about Ohanian. “We’re rivals on the soccer field. But off the soccer field, he’s really helped guide me in the VC space.”
