Founded by a star-studded ensemble of actors, athletes, and entrepreneurs including Natalie Portman, Eva Longoria, and Serena Williams, its inception marked a departure from the traditional pathways of club ownership. This group of powerful women pledged to disrupt the norms by not only elevating women's soccer but also by reshaping the discourse surrounding women in sports.
