NWSL expansion team Angel City FC announced Friday that singer and actress Becky G has joined the star-studded ownership group.
The news dropped courtesy of the artist herself during an appearance on the club’s Instagram Live show Friday with Eva Longoria, who is herself a team co-owner.

The 23-year-old is a Southern California native, a superstar in her field and is already getting the word out about Angel City, which is scheduled to launch in the NWSL in 2022.
Of course, she already has ties to the sport of soccer locally, as many know she’s in a relationship with LA Galaxy midfielder Sebastian Lletget. She referenced Lletget’s career in the clip above, joking that if they had a daughter one day, she hoped the child would be even better at soccer than her dad.
So there you have it. The Angel City FC ownership group is large enough to field two XIs and play a game on their own, but jokes aside, it’s pretty cool to see the enthusiasm for the team and the people who want to be a part of the club in some way. Hopefully that bodes well for the future of the club overall.
