  • James Harden acquires minority stake in Houston soccer teams

"Houston is my home now, and I saw this as a way to invest in my city and expand my business interests at the same time".

Harden joins fellow celebrity athlete Oscar De La Hoya in the ownership group, which is headed by Gabriel Brener. "James will bring a very unique perspective to our ownership group, and I'm looking forward to hearing his thoughts and opinions on the club going forward". Major League Soccer is on the rise in the United States and moving forward, Harden could stand to make a lot of money. The average MLS club valuation has increased almost 650 percent over the past decade, and 20 of the league's 24 clubs have built or renovated their stadiums specifically for soccer matches.

De La Hoya also established Golden Boy Promotions in 2002, and according to the company's website he is the first Hispanic to own a national boxing promotional company.

It is not known what percentage Harden owns, but according to sources he has been added to the ownership group and is not replacing any of its members.

In addition to Harden, the ownership group includes majority owner Gabriel Brener-who purchased his share of the team in December 2015-and boxer Oscar De La Hoya. "He knows the drive and the determination it takes to be the absolute best, and I'm excited that he's going to bring that attitude to our club".

Dynamo and Dash officials have not been available for comment.

The 29-year-old has a history of branching out from basketball and has a portfolio which includes the sports drink BodyArmor and Art of Sport (A.O.S.), a body- and skin-care brand for athletes, among others.

On the field, Harden joins a club with a rich history of competing for and winning championships. Currently, the Dynamo, which have won MLS Cup twice and are captained by longtime US global DaMarcus Beasley, sit in ninth place in the Western Conference, while the Dash are in seventh place in NWSL.
