Angel Reese’s WNBA journey is just beginning, but she’s on her way to becoming a mogul.

The Chicago Sky rookie announced Tuesday that she is now a co-owner of the DC Power Football Club, Washington’s new women’s professional soccer team. The Power will begin their first season this summer as one of the eight founding teams of the USL Super League.

“I want to help grow women’s sports and elevate female athletes across the board.” Reese said in a statement via The Athletic. “We are taking over and I am honored to support Power FC and invest in women’s soccer in the DMV community.”

According to The Athletic, other investors include DC United and several “community and business leaders” in the area.

“Angel’s decision to be a founding investor alongside us in Power FC is groundbreaking,” said Jason Levien, CEO and Co-Chairman of DC United, said in a statement. “As a Maryland native, Angel is passionate about being a catalyst for positive change in women’s sports in the DMV and globally, as she inspires the next generation of female athletes. We look forward to her participation in the boardroom as an equity partner.”

Announcing Reese as its first celebrity investor wasn’t the only thing the new franchise did on Tuesday. They announced their first president (Jordan Stuart), their first coach (former DC United player Frédéric Brillant) and the name of their team.
