Three time Grand slam champion, Naomi Osaka has invested in a football club called North Carolina Courage.
Naomi is known to be an inspiration to up and coming female athletes but now she has come out to say that she’s committed to also invest in them.
“The women who have invested in me growing up made me who I am today and I cannot think of where my life would be without them,” said Naomi. “My investment in the North Carolina Courage is far beyond just being a team owner, it’s an investment in amazing women who are role models and leaders in their fields and inspirations to all young female athletes. I also admire everything the Courage does for diversity and equality in the community, which I greatly look forward to supporting and driving forward.” She said.
The North Carolina Courage is a professional women’s soccer team based in Cary, North Carolina. It was founded in 2017 after Stephen Malik acquired National Women’s Soccer League franchise rights from Western New York Flash.
The tennis sensation joins the long list of athletes who have invested in women’s football teams in the United States.
