The company has legendary NFL quarterback Tom Brady as one of its co-founders. Currently, the platform has six iconic sports stars, with Osaka the only female in that list. Her name features alongside icons like Tiger Woods and Wayne Gretzky. The company has its headquarters in Los Angeles, California.

While Osaka prepares for the upcoming US Open, she took to social media to promote the drop of her premier preseason access passes. Fans from across the world can enjoy passes from as low as $12 for the Carbon pass, of which there are 5000 editions.

Should fans want to get a pass exclusively signed by Osaka, they will need to shell out a minimum of $250. While the Carbon signed pass costs this much, there are only 100 editions of the same. However, the most expensive pass is the Ruby signed pass, which costs $1500. There are only 12 editions of this piece.

The Osaka preseason drops go live on Wednesday, August 25 and Friday, August 27 at 3pm EDT.
