As for why little Alexis Olympia has a stake in the team at such a young age, her father and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian had the perfect answer. 

"I want her to have a front-row seat to this revolution,” he said in the official NWSL statement.  I’m personally investing on behalf of my family because creating more opportunities in women’s sports is important to my wife and me, and we want to be a part of making a better future for our daughter."
