Eli Manning joins NWSL's Gotham FC ownership group

Aug 10, 2022

Eli Manning is dipping his toes into the professional sports ownership pool.

The two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback for the New York Giants is now a minority owner of the National Women’s Soccer League's NJ/NY Gotham FC, the team announced Wednesday.

“This league and this team practice 15 minutes away from my house, they play games right here in New Jersey,” Manning told the New York Post. “I wanted to support them, and the idea of taking my kids to a practice or a game ... I have three girls. It’s a way to get involved and find role models for my girls. You put them in different things, and you want them to find things that they’re passionate about. It creates such great life lessons and work ethic and teamwork and dedication and commitment and those type of things."
