Ciara, Russell Wilson och Macklemore blir delägare i Seattle Sounders



Det amerikanska fotbollslaget Seattle Sounders har annonserat att Ciara och maken Russell Wilson blir delägare i klubben. Men man är inte ensamma, då även Macklemore och hans fru, Tricia Davis, är några av flera som klivit in i organisationen. I ett uttalande säger Wilson, som sedan 2012 spelat quarterback i NFL-laget Seattle Seahawks:


“Seattle means so much to me and Ciara. We’re fired up about being part of the Sounders for a long, long time, having ownership in the Sounders and continuing to build that winning culture.”


“We’re really excited about building that winning culture. This city is a special place. The Pacific Northwest is a place we love and we get to raise our kids here and have a lot of fun while doing it. We want to bring the best soccer players in the world right here to Seattle”, fortsätter han.


Även Macklemore, som själv är från staden, är exalterad.


“Man, to be part of this organization, having grown up in Seattle – it’s pretty surreal. It’s just very exciting. I’m very honored. I think we have a great group. This team is building an incredible legacy and I’m just excited to be part of it.”
