The Reddit co-founder is the leading investor in Angel City FC. Ohanian has also explained the rationale behind his decision to put money on women’s soccer.

Ten or 15 years from now, when people look at Angel City FC, I think they’ll actually see this one as being the most obvious. There’s a million people on Twitter right now who are going to say no one watches women’s sports. The message I have for them is facts don’t care about your feelings. The data shows Americans would rather watch two women in the U.S. Open.
The American Entrepreneur argues. (H/T: Los Angeles Times)

Alexis Ohanian also dreams of seeing his daughter Olympia play soccer on the biggest stage but only if she is paid what she is worth and he is working day in and out to make it happen.
