Chicago Sky rookie forward Angel Reese has already become one of the most popular players in the WNBA upon entering the league. Along with Caitlin Clark, Reese has done an excellent job of increasing the popularity of the sport. But for Reese, only increasing the popularity of women’s basketball seemingly isn’t enough for her, as she is looking to increase the reach of women’s sports as a whole.

Just days after being drafted by the Sky with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft, her jersey had already sold out. This shows just how big of a name she has made for herself.

She will now use her name to help push her next business venture with a women’s soccer team in the DMV area. On Tuesday, the DC Power Football Club, a first-division women’s soccer team, announced on social media that Reese is now a co-owner of the team.

“I’m honored to be able to support Power FC and invest in women’s soccer in the DMV community to continue elevating female athletes and the women’s game across the board,” wrote Reese in a statement shared on the DC Power social media account.

Reese also took to social media to offer more thoughts on the business venture, saying that she is “looking forward to creating new opportunities” in women’s soccer.

“So grateful & blessed for this new ownership! Looking forward to creating new opportunities for women in professional soccer. I’ve always had to desire to invest in a local team as a Maryland native!”

It’s an impressive move for Reese to make consider she is just 22 years of age. And it further shows that she is fully committed to the growth of women’s sports as a whole, not just in women’s basketball.
