Villa owner wants to enlarge empire

Billionaire daughter of club owner: This top model lives in luxury

Wes Edens is a co-owner of Aston Villa and the Milwaukee Bucks. Now the billionaire wants to start a soccer team in the MLS.

Wes Edens has ambitious plans!

The 60-year-old billionaire is a co-owner of the Premier League club Aston Villa and the reigning NBA champion, the Milwaukee Bucks.

Now the businessman has a new project in mind.

Like the English newspaper The Sun reports, Edens would like to found an MLS franchise in Las Vegas and thus accommodate a football team in the top division of the USA.

Edens wants home games in NFL Stadium

This should happen as soon as the league is increased to 30 teams in 2023.

Accordingly, Edens had already registered the name “Las Vegas Villains” after it became known that Sacramento Republic will not compete in the MLS as planned.

Edens is said to already have a stadium for his soccer team in prospect: The billionaire intends to play the home games in the 60,000-seat Allegiant Stadium, which is the home of the NFL team Las Vegas Raiders.

Edens first invested in a sports club in 2014 when he and his partner Marc Lasry bought the Milwaukee Bucks for around 470 million euros.

Edens celebrates success with Milwaukee Bucks

In 2021, the Bucks were crowned NBA champions and Edens celebrated his success as a co-owner.

Edens also achieved some successes with Aston Villa, including promotion to the Premier League in 2019 and the engagement of managing director Christian Purslow, who recently steered Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard to Aston Villa.

Not only does Wes Edens know how to do business, his daughter Mallory is no stranger either. The 25-year-old is a model and under contract with Elite in New York. She has over 200,000 followers on Instagram and likes to be freely there. She is an avid Bucks fan and cheers her father’s team on from the edge of the field from time to time.

By the way, Wes Edens not only owns sports teams, he also owns a ski resort in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, among other things. The Caldera House is known from an episode of the reality show by Kim Kardashian, and top models like Gigi Hadid are fans.

Enough glamor for a soccer team in the casino capital Las Vegas.
