Angel Reese Just Became the First Co-Owner of DC Power Football Club


May 22, 2024

Chicago Sky rookie Angel Reese has added another title to her already impressive resume: professional sports team owner.

According to CBS News, The Baltimore County native has become the first member of the ownership group for DC Power Football Club, a Washington-based women’s team set to debut this summer in the United Soccer League Super League. “I’ve always wanted to impact sports, not just women’s basketball,” Reese was quoted in an official statement. “I’ve always said I wanted to have part ownership of something. Obviously, basketball is my main thing, but growing up in the DMV area, I’ve loved sports, always, so being able to be a part of the Power FC soccer (team) is going to be so cool. I’m invested in soccer. A lot of my friends play soccer as well. I’m super excited for this partnership, and a lot of young Black women don’t have these opportunities.”

Reese’s journey to becoming a team owner is as inspiring as it is impressive. Growing up in Randallstown, Maryland, Reese developed a passion for sports that extended beyond the basketball court. Her dedication and talent led her to an illustrious college career, where she became a three-time All-American and led LSU to the 2023 NCAA championship and the Elite Eight this year after two seasons at Maryland.

Reese, who played high school basketball at Baltimore’s St. Frances Academy, was the seventh overall pick in the WNBA Draft. Her professional career with the Chicago Sky is off to a promising start, and her venture into team ownership demonstrates her commitment to making a lasting impact on the sports world.

DC Power FC, one of eight teams set to play in the USL Super League’s inaugural season beginning in August, represents a significant step forward for women’s soccer. Pending the completion of stadium projects, the league plans to expand with eight more teams by 2025 or later.


Reese’s involvement with DC Power FC is not just about her passion for sports but also about paving the way for future generations. “I know a lot more women are going to start owning more things,” she said. Looking to the future, she continued “Hopefully, one day I can own my own team. That’s what I’m looking forward to. I want to own a WNBA team as well.”

As Reese continues to break barriers on and off the court, she is an inspiration for young Black women and aspiring athletes everywhere.
