Tom Brady becomes minority owner of WNBA's Las Vegas Aces
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady has acquired an ownership stake in the WNBA champion Las Vegas Aces, he announced on Thursday.
He attended an Aces game on May 31 and later sent Las Vegas star Kelsey Plum a jersey and other gifts.
“I am very excited to be part of the Las Vegas Aces organization,” Brady said in a statement Thursday. “My love for women’s sports began at a young age when I would tag along to all my older sisters’ games — they were by far the best athletes in our house! We celebrated their accomplishments together as a family, and they remain a great inspiration to me.
“I have always been a huge fan of women’s sports, and I admire the work that the Aces’ players, staff, and the WNBA continue to do to grow the sport and empower future generations of athletes. To be able to contribute in any way to that mission as a member of the Aces organization is an incredible honor.”
Brady announced his retirement on Feb. 1 at age 45, exactly one year after his initial retirement following the 2021 season. However, his retirement didn’t last long because he wound up coming back for one more year with the Buccaneers.
Brady finished his career as NFL’s career leader in yards passing (89,214) and touchdowns (649). He is also the only player to win more than five Super Bowls and has been MVP of the game five times.
Throughout 23 seasons, he’s won three NFL MVP awards, was selected to the Pro Bowl 15 times and has been a first-team All-Pro three times.
“Tom Brady is a win not only for the Aces, and the WNBA, but for women’s professional sports as a whole,” Aces owner Mark Davis said in a statement.
Aside from his newly assigned role with the Aces, Brady will also join Fox Sports as their lead analyst. Brady announced that his 10-year, $375 million Fox contract will begin in fall 2024.
