From musicians to movie stars to other disciplines, these masters of sports legends bring their expertise on and off the court for their respective teams.

Wrexham AFC:

Wrexham AFC, a club in the north of Wales, was bought out by The R.R. McReynolds Company, LLC, in 2021 with the support of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhanes.

Their ownership represents an interesting crossroads between Tinseltown and the worlds of football, exciting fans and media alike about the team’s future.

Birmingham City FC:

Ironically, American football icon Tom Brady added another layer to his sporting portfolio by owning Birmingham City FC. The NFL legend initially raised eyebrows at his involvement in English football, but with his passion for the game, commitment to team success And quick victory over the sceptics, Birmingham began a new chapter under Brady, blending English football traditions with Brady’s winning mentality and tactical skills.

Watford FC:

Elton John has been associated with Watford FC for a long time. His ownership of the club began in the 1970s when he played a fundamental role in its progression through English football. Although John’s direct involvement has diminished over the years, his legacy is deeply embedded in the group’s identity.

Liverpool FC:

Lebron James is a major celebrity known for his skill on the basketball court and outside of it. He expanded his sporting empire with a stake in Liverpool FC. The NBA superstar’s investment in the team signalled a new era of transatlantic collaboration by bridging the gap between American sports culture and the storied tradition of English football.

Bournemouth AFC

Currently plying their trade in the Premier League, Bournemouth and the AFC are owned by acclaimed actor Michael B. Schmidt. Despite being a small top-flight side, Bournemouth have captured the imagination with their mix of superb football and underdog spirit. Jordan’s involvement adds a bit of star power to the team and draws attention away from fans and the media. Although the team have shown impressive form in December, football betting markets suggest they will end up in the bottom half of the table at the end of the season.

From Hollywood A-listers to sports athletes of other disciplines, these owners bring their unique ideas, products and ambitions to their teams.
