WHY I BELIEVE

MY KIND OF TEAM
left-quote.png

I wanted to be part of the Red Stars because I grew up in Chicago and a professional woman’s soccer team didn’t exist when I was a kid. The Red Stars are the winningest team in the league and are inspiring role models. Media and sports are highly influential and I’m proud to help a team of strong women build a legacy in Sweet Home Chicago.

I’m excited to be a part of an ownership group that is changing the landscape of pro-team ownership, emphasizes having a group that is reflective of a diverse and inclusive society, and a group with a mission driven goal to amplify the value of female athletes on and off the field.

I did it for my granddaughter. I have always loved soccer as a spectator and player (through high school). One of my favorite memories is taking my daughter to the 1999 World Cup finals when the US defeated China in a shootout. To now be a part of this evolution of women’s soccer with this storied franchise is special.

When you’re born in Chicago, love of sports often runs deep in your blood; and I am no exception. So when the opportunity arose to be part of an intriguing and engaging ownership group for the Chicago Red Stars, I jumped at the chance. I am honored to represent such a proud club and to help play a role in growing the local, national, and global exposure of the preeminent women’s team in the world’s most popular sport. The game is beautiful, and this team deserves a group of advocates at the ownership level to help remove any roadblocks to their success.

We know how important it is for people to invest, support and advance women's sports. We live it. As two professional athletes, we have had two vastly different experiences in professional sports and know we need to invest in women's sports if we want to close the gap on the opportunities and resources men and women are provided on the pitch, field, court and ice. As kids, we grew up 15 minutes south of the Chicago Red Stars home and we are so excited to join the ownership group of the oldest and winningest pro women's soccer team in the United States. #MKOT

As a Chicago native who has spent a large majority of my career working in Sports and Media, the opportunity to become a minority owner and support one of the most vibrant sports cities in the world was an easy decision. The NWSL has a massive fan base that is rapidly scaling, with the Chicago Red Stars having all the right ingredients to fuel the future of the game.

I'm looking forward to helping pave the path to open more opportunities for women athletes everywhere. It's an exciting time to support the incredible momentum in women's sports.

When the opportunity arose to be a part of an exceptional ownership group of a professional sports franchise in my hometown, for a sport that I love, I could not pass it up. Our three children have been playing soccer since they were toddlers. I want them to learn from these incredible role model athletes on the Red Stars and to see first-hand how with hard work and dedication your dreams can become a reality. I hope to bring my tech and entrepreneurial spirit to help continue to grow and strengthen this incredibly talented club.

I’m a Chicago native and take great pride in helping secure a spot for the Red Stars in the amazing sports history of our city. I have been an active fan of women’s soccer since the ‘99 U.S. WNT. When my wife was pregnant with our oldest daughter, we had the good fortune of meeting Mia Hamm who signed an autograph for my daughter before she was even born. She and her sister both grew up to be soccer players. I managed their teams and I watched them struggle to find acceptance, field space, and everything their male counterparts took for granted. The time for inequality is over. I am thrilled to be a part of the future of women’s sports.”

In 2007, as the father of four athletic, soccer-playing, teen and near-teen daughters, I was excited by Arnim's vision to bring a successful, highly regarded, women's professional soccer team to Chicago. Through the hard work of Arnim, Rory and many tremendous players, coaches and staff members, that vision has become a reality. I'm proud to be a part of it.
