Russell Wilson, Ciara & Macklemore Join Seattle Sounds Ownership Group

The Seattle Sounders are adding Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his R&B star wife Ciara, hip-hop artist Macklemore and Microst CEO Satya Nadella to the MLS club’s ownership group.

Other investors are also coming aboard while current majority owner Adrian Hanauer is increasing his investment stake in the club. Hollywood producer Joe Roth, who helped bring the MLS to Seattle, is leaving the franchise.

Wilson has been attempting to get into sports ownership. He was previously a partner in an effort to build a new basketball arena in Seattle and has also been part the project in Portland, Oregon, to build a baseball stadium in the hopes luring an MLB team to the city.
