Former World No.1 Serena Williams couldn’t take part in the ongoing Miami Open 2021 due to her tooth problem. She hasn’t played professional tennis since the Australian Open 2021, where she had a decent showing. Right now, she and her husband Alexis Ohanian are quite busy promoting their newly acquired soccer team, Angel City FC.

Serena Williams, in partnership with her husband, has invested in women’s soccer in the United States. They are the co-owners of a team Angel City FC, which will be starting its campaign in 2022. Interestingly, their 3-year-old daughter Olympia also has a stake in the soccer club.

Recently, Alexis Ohanian was making a video for the promotion of his team Angel City FC. But Olympia had other ideas as she gate-crashed the video and had fun with his father.

“Youngest owner in pro sports Olympia Ohanian wants you to know that Seat Deposits are now available for AC FC (tell ’em you’re #TeamAlexis!!) Each seat deposit. Nike sports bra given to a young girl in need,” wrote Alexis on his Instagram post.

Alexis was informing fans in the video that seat deposits are now available for his club. Surprisingly, Olympia was wearing the headphones and was giving full support to his father by repeating after him.

Alexis believes that the idea of investing in a women’s football team is going to show the right path to many people. He feels that he’ll be able to break many stereotypes by doing so. He wrote that by taking such a step, he would be able to prove all those people wrong who still don’t believe in the power of women athletes.

“Lots of people don’t believe in the power, influence, and awesomeness of Women athletes. This is the start of a long dynasty of proving them very, very wrong,” wrote the husband.

Fans are eagerly waiting for the next season when Angel City FC will play its first match. It’ll surely be a new journey for both Serena and Alexis as well, and they seem quite excited about it. Will women soccer see a huge increase in investment after the rise of the Angel City FC?
