The 11 new families also include celebrities with direct ties to Seattle such as musicians Ciara and Macklemore, Seattle Seahawks six-time Pro Bowler Russell Wilson, and other tech and media veterans including former Pandora, aQuantive, Microsoft, and ABC Sports exec Brian McAndrews and his wife, and former Microsoft exec Soma Somasegar and his wife. This city is a special place. "It's the place we get to raise our kids and the place we are forever connected to", the couple said in a joint statement. The Myerson-led group held off competing interest in the Sounders from a California-based group.

"Seattle means so much to me and Ciara", Wilson said in a news release. They are among 11 families to join the ownership team. "We're fired up about being part of the Sounders for a long, long time, having ownership in the Sounders and continuing to build that winning culture", Russell Wilson said in a statement. Allen, sister of the late Paul Allen, also owns the Portland Trail Blazers of the National Basketball Association. Hanauer and Carey have upped their investment in the franchise, although Hanauer declined to specify by how much. The new group of partners also features Mark and Tomoko Agne, with the former working as Managing Partner at SoftBank Investment Advisers. While the new investors are important, Hanauer made it clear the new structure didn't immediately mean the club was flush with new money. He served as the majority owner for several years before Hanauer took over the majority share. "The last 10 years watching our Sounders grow with their incredible fan support beat any hit movie I ever created".
