Forward “Brooklyn nets” Kevin Durant has become one of the owners of the football club American League of MLS, “Philadelphia Union”. The two-time NBA champion purchased a 5 percent stake with the option to buy another 5 percent later. Its share is estimated at $ 16 million.
“I’ve been a fan of the sport, and then saw the rapidly growing popularity of the League, seen in different cities across the country there are more fans, and then saw how these franchises affect the business of the city and people separately, it was very exciting,” said Durant.
Working. Winning. DOOPing. The Union family just grew bigger one champion.
