Over the last 10-20 years, the NFL has turned into an incredibly profitable league for both the owners and players. And given the immense popularity and profit, the pro football league not only attracts business tycoons but also sports personalities, as far as ownership is considered. And, former tennis phenom Serena Williams is one such sports personality who co-owns an NFL team.

Notably, along with her sister Venus, Serena has gone on to invest a huge chunk to purchase a minority stake in the Miami Dolphins. Interestingly, if recent reports are true, their stake’s valuation has exploded and gone up by a huge amount.

While athletes earn a lot of money through their sporting careers, their time playing is limited. Therefore, it is financially brilliant for high-earning athletes to make some smart investments. And what better investment than a team in a pro league? In recent times, we witnessed Tom Brady himself venture into investment by acquiring stakes in the Raiders. Applying this logic, the William sisters have gone on to buy a hefty stake in the NFL team, Miami Dolphins. With the NFL slowly transitioning into one of the highest-valued leagues in the world, the Williams sisters are the first African-American minority stake owners in NFL history.

Additionally, the actual valuation of their stakes has gone up by a huge margin. While their stake’s valuation was worth $1 billion in 2009, it has increased by a whopping $3 billion since then. The actual valuation in 2023 for their stakes in the Miami Dolphins is now $4.6 billion.
