  • Sounders majority owner Adrian Hanauer from left new owners Terry Myerson Macklemore Ciara and Russell Wilson and minority owner Drew Carey

Super Bowl victor Russell Wilson, his Grammy award-winning singer and wife Ciara and rapper Macklemore have joined the ownership group of Major League Soccer side Seattle Sounders.

"Today we begin another chapter in the story of Seattle Sounders FC, this proud club that means so much to so many people", majority owner Adrian Hanauer said.

Wilson continues his quest to get into the sports ownership world. "We are doubling down on this community and growing our local roots even deeper". In 2014, he joined an investment group looking to bring an NBA/NHL arena to Seattle.

"Sounders FC was born right here in Seattle, and for more than 40 years, the club has forged a meaningful legacy that is deep and far-reaching".

Ronan is the latest to take the lead of Jo March, also notably played by Katharine Hepburn in 1933 and Winona Ryder in 1994. Chalamet worked with Saoirse Ronan and Greta Gerwig in Lady Bird , so clearly the trio has good working chemistry.

Hanauer, Jody Allen and comedian and "The Price Is Right" host Drew Carey were among the initial ownership group of the Sounders. "Today's news is a testament to what our community has accomplished, as 11 new families have joined with the broader Sounders family as fans and invested stewards of our club". Others include a handful of current and former Microsoft executives. The new group of partners also features Mark and Tomoko Agne, with the former working as Managing Partner at SoftBank Investment Advisers. "But we all are Sounders, and we believe in this club", Macklemore said in a video announcing the move.

Hollywood producer Joe Roth, who helped bring the MLS to Seattle, is leaving the franchise.

The Sounders, who won the MLS Cup in 2016, are now second in the western conference. "We're fired up about being part of the Sounders for a long, long time, having ownership in the Sounders and continuing to build that winning culture. That's what we're excited about for this game, this team, and what we can do in Seattle".
