Brady will oversee the club alongside Las Vegas Raiders’ owner Mark Davis.
“Since I purchased the Aces, our goal has been to win on and off the court,” Davis said in a statement released to the team’s website. “Tom Brady is a win not only for the Aces, and the WNBA, but for women’s professional sports as a whole.”
