WASHINGTON, DC – Chicago Sky rookie Angel Reese announced Tuesday that she is part of the ownership group founding a new professional women’s soccer team in Washington, D.C.

The DC Power Football Club is one of eight teams that will compete in the inaugural season of the USL Super League, beginning in August.

Reese was drafted No. 7 overall in the 2024 WNBA Draft to the Chicago Sky. Reese spent two seasons at the University of Maryland before transferring to Louisiana State University where she was A three-time All-American, part of the 2023 NCAA championship team and 2024 SEC Player of the Year.

Reese, a Maryland native, confirmed the news on X while reiterating her dedication to growing women’s sports and desire to invest in a team close to home.

“I’m honored to be able to support Power FC and invest in women’s soccer in  the DMV community to continue elevating female athletes and the women’s game   across the board.” Reese said in a statement on the team’s website. 

The USL super league is an organization that has committed to U.S. Soccer’s Division One standards, with the hopes of building the future of women’s soccer and providing more women opportunities to play. The league’s first season, taking place this fall, will feature eight original teams with additional teams set to join in the following seasons.

“Angel’s decision to be a founding investor alongside us in Power FC is groundbreaking,” Jason Levien, D.C. United CEO and Co-Chairman, said in a press release. “As a Maryland native, Angel is so passionate about being a catalyst for positive change in women’s sports in the DMV as well as globally while inspiring the next generation of female athletes. We’re looking forward to her partnership in the boardroom as an equity partner.”

DC Power FC will play at Audi Field in Washington D.C., home to the D.C. United, the NWSL’s Washington Spirit, and the UFL’s DC Defenders
