Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife, R&B superstar Ciara, have joined Seattle-based rapper Macklemore as part of the ownership of the Seattle Sounders FC.

"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", Wilson said in a news release. "We are doubling down on this community and growing our local roots even deeper". The organization also announced that Hanauer Futbol - a group comprised of Hanauer, his wife, Lenore, and Paul Barry - has increased its overall investment in the Sounders.

Hanauer, Jody Allen and comedian and "The Price Is Right" host Drew Carey were among the initial ownership group of the Sounders.

To shed some insight into that, former Microsoft executive Terry Myerson wrote an extensive LinkedIn post that starts at the very beginning and carries through the latest chapters in his Seattle fandom.

Wilson, joins 10 other families who have invested in the Sounders, including hip-hop artist Macklemore.

"This diverse, passionate group of new partners wants to continue developing the club's community-first approach, while also furthering its proud winning tradition on the field", Hanauer said. Sounders FC was born right here in Seattle, and for more than 40 years, the club has forged a meaningful legacy that is deep and far-reaching. He has long attempted to expand his sports foothold in the region, joining groups attempting to bring a Major League Baseball team to Portland and an National Basketball Association team back to Seattle. The team won the MLS Cup in 2016.

It's not Wilson's first venture into the business side of sports. "That's what we're excited about for this game, this team, and what we can do in Seattle".
