Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson isn’t just an American football fan. He showed this when he and his wife Ciara took part ownership of the Seattle Sounders FC. This was announced today in a press release. Wilson also commented on the purchase.

“We are fired up about the Seattle Sounders because it’s our home. It’s the place we get to raise our kids and the place we are forever connected to, we want to have the world’s best soccer players play here in Seattle and win championships! As we do that, we also want to have a major impact on our community through one of the world’s best sports by teaching and demonstrating a healthy lifestyle, winning habits, sportsmanship and ultimately a Why Not You Attitude. This is just the beginning of what we plan to do together in the world of sports and entertainment.” Said Wilson and Ciara.
