Tom Brady is a new co-owner of the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces.
The former star NFL quarterback joined Aces majority owner Mark Davis, who also controls the Las Vegas Raiders, on Thursday.
Brady, who has won seven Super Bowls in his NFL career, said he was excited about the opportunity.
“My love for women’s sports began at a young age when I would accompany all of my older sisters’ games. They were by far the best athletes in our house!” he said in a video posted on Twitter. “We celebrate their accomplishments together as a family and they continue to be a great inspiration to me.”
The move is the latest of Brady’s post-football business ventures. He also owns a Major League Baseball Pickleball team, as well as his own nutrition and fitness line TB12 and his own production company, 199 Productions.
Mark Davis also felt good about the future of the Aces, now with the legendary athlete on board.
“Since I bought the Aces, our goal has been to win on and off the court. Tom Brady is a victory not only for the Aces and the WNBA, but for women’s professional sports as a whole,” Davis was quoted as saying by TMZ.
The Aces are one of the best teams in the WNBA and the reigning champions from last season. The team features some of the best players in the league, including A’ja Wilson, Candace Parker, and Kelsey Plum.
