lafc co-owner will ferrell shares the demand for lionel messi tickets in may, as actor owen wilson compares him to nba icon michael jordan

Hollywood actor Will Ferrell has become a co-owner of Major League Soccer (MLS) team Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC). The announcement was made on Thursday, with Ferrell joining an impressive list of celebrity owners that includes basketball legend Magic Johnson and actor-producer Mia Hamm.

Ferrell is known for his comedic roles in movies such as “Anchorman” and “Talladega Nights,” but he is also a passionate sports fan. In a statement, he expressed his excitement about becoming a part of LAFC and the MLS. He stated, “I’ve never been a part-owner of anything. But I’m really excited about it. I have a passion for soccer and I love Los Angeles, so this is a perfect fit for me.”

LAFC is a relatively new team in the MLS, having been established in 2014. Despite their short history, they have already made an impact in the league, finishing as runners-up in the 2019 season. With Ferrell now on board, the club hopes to continue their success and further establish themselves in the soccer world.

Ferrell’s involvement with LAFC goes beyond just being a co-owner. He will also serve as an ambassador for the club, helping to promote its brand and engage with fans. This is not the first time Ferrell has been involved in sports ownership, as he was previously a part-owner of the Los Angeles Football Club’s affiliate team, LAFC U-23.

The news of Ferrell’s ownership stake in LAFC comes shortly after it was announced that Argentine soccer superstar Lionel Messi has joined Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) after leaving Barcelona. Ferrell jokingly commented on the timing, saying, “I’m sorry, what? Lionel Messi just joined PSG? I didn’t know that. I’m going to have to call my lawyers.”

Ferrell is not the only celebrity owner in the world of soccer. Actor Owen Wilson is also a co-owner of LAFC, while basketball legend Michael Jordan owns a stake in the Charlotte Hornets of the NBA.

With Ferrell’s comedic talent and love for soccer, his involvement with LAFC is sure to bring a unique and entertaining element to the team. As the MLS continues to grow in popularity, having high-profile owners like Ferrell only adds to the excitement and prestige of the league.
