Tom Brady buys stake in WNBA champion Las Vegas Aces
“Tom Brady is a win not just for the Aces and the WNBA, but for women’s professional sports as a whole.”
As a young child in San Mateo, Calif., Tom Brady often followed his three older sisters’ sporting events.
“They were all amazing athletes in their own right,” Brady said. “They were role models for me.”
His love for women’s sports goes back decades, and now he will channel that passion in a new way. Brady acquired a stake in the WNBA champion Las Vegas Aces.
“To empower future generations of female athletes, one of them in my own family, I am ready to contribute in any way I can as a member of such a great organization,” Brady said. “What an honor.”
Aces owner Mark Davis, who also owns the Las Vegas Raiders, expressed his appreciation in a statement.
“Tom Brady is a win not just for the Aces and the WNBA, but for women’s professional sports as a whole,” Davis said.
Brady’s purchase is subject to WNBA approval.
