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.

That's what we're excited about for this game, this team, and what we can do in Seattle".
