Chelsea Clinton and Jenna Bush Hager buy Washington Spirit shares
The Washington Women’s Football League national team has just received an injection of non-partisanship.
According to Steven Goff of the Washington Post, presidential daughters Chelsea Clinton and Jenna Bush Hager are each buying stakes in the Washington Spirit. Meg Linehan and Pablo Maurer from Athletic have also shared the news.
In addition to Clinton, the daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Hager, the daughter of George W. and Laura Bush, the Spirit will also include former USWNT goalkeeper Briana Scurry and pioneering Olympic gymnast Dominique Dawes in their possession box. Other DC circuit names are reportedly on the way.
While her parents have their obvious political differences, Hager has spoken of a “sisterhood” among women who grew up in and around the White House. From today:
“Chelsea (Clinton) and I will see each other, or we did before. I don’t see anyone now. But we saw each other in New York City. And I turn to the Obama girls and vice versa. But we do.
“There is a sisterhood because there are so few of us that we know what it is like and how beautiful it is and what story it lives and what difficulties there are,” she said.
Local tech manager Steve Baldwin currently sits as the executive owner of the team that was founded in 2012 as one of the eight original teams at NWSL.
Prominent owners the new trend in NWSL
The spirit that adds Clinton, Hager, Dawes, Scurry and more would continue the recent trend of celebrity ownership in the NWSL.
Of course, Angel City FC in Los Angeles is the most star-studded of the group. The owners include (take a deep breath) Natalie Portman, Serena Williams, Jennifer Garner, Lindsey Vonn, Uzo Aduba, P.K. Subban, Jessica Chastain, America Ferrera, Candace Parker, Billie Jean King, Eva Longoria and Lilly Singh as well as former USWNT stars like Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy and Abby Wambach.
Tennis star Naomi Osaka has also acquired a stake in the North Carolina Courage, according to The Athletic, while Tony Parker holds a portion of OL Reign and James Harden and Oscar De La Hoya co-own the Houston Dash. J.J. Watt also once tweeted about his interest in buying the Utah Royals, whose assets were eventually moved to an expansion team in Kansas City owned by Patrick Mahomes’ fiancé Brittany Matthews.
