Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson joins Seattle Sounders ownership group




 

Russell Wilson's budding business empire just got a little bit bigger.

Just one year after the Seattle Seahawks quarterback and his wife, Ciara, announced they had joined the Portland Diamond Project, a group working to bring Major League Baseball to Portland, the Wilsons are plotting their next move in the Seattle sports community.

Wilson and Ciara became one of 11 families to become team owners of the Seattle Sounders, according to an official release from the Sounders Tuesday. This is the six-time Pro Bowler's first stake in sports ownership.

"Seattle means so much to me and Ciara," Wilson said in a Sounders press release. "We're fired up about being part of the Sounders for a long, long time, having ownership in the Sounders and continuing to build that winning culture."

News of Wilson's latest business move comes as no surprise. The 30-year-old agreed to a four-year, $140 million contract extension in April to remain in Seattle through the 2023 season.

Now, that the Wilsons have made the Pacific Northwest their home, joining the Sounders ownership group cements their dedication to Seattle and the greater sports community.
