Houston Rockets Star James Harden has bought an ownership stake into the Houston Dynamo. He also bought part of an ownership stake in the Houston Dash and BBVA Stadium.

Both Harden and the teams announced the move on Thursday. He has been a part of the Houston sports scene since the 2012-13 season after being acquired in a trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

“I’m very excited about the opportunity to join the ownership group of the Houston Dynamo and Houston Dash and proud to be a part of a club with tremendous history and a great future,” Harden said. “Houston is my home now, and I saw this as a way to invest in my city and expand my business interests at the same time. Soccer in general, and especially MLS, have exploded in this country throughout my lifetime. I’ve been a fan of the game for several years, and I know that Houston has a massive soccer fanbase, so it was an easy decision for me when this opportunity arose.”

Harden now joins a group that is led by majority owner Gabriel Brener, who bought the team in December 2015. When he purchased the team, he became the first Mexican-born owner in American pro sports.

He is not the only high-profile athlete to be a part of this ownership group. Former boxer and owner of Golden Boy Promotions, Oscar De La Hoya, is also part of this ownership group.

Other members of the ownership group include Ben Guill and Jake Silverstein. Harden’s business manager Lorenzo McCloud, along with True Capital management, assisted in making this deal happen with Chris Hopkins, who is the Brener Group Chief Operating Officer,

“We are thrilled to welcome James into our club. He’s an icon in the Houston community, and not only is he a great basketball player, he has an extremely smart and savvy mind for business,” Brener said. “James will bring a very unique perspective to our ownership group, and I’m looking forward to hearing his thoughts and opinions on the club going forward.”
