Reese Witherspoon Becomes Part-Owner of Nashville Professional Football Team

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Actor Reese Witherspoon and Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry joined Major League Soccer’s Nashville team ownership group ahead of Sunday’s opening of Geodis Park, its 30,000 seat stadium.

Witherspoon’s husband, agent and investor Jim Toth has also joined the ownership group, the team announced on Tuesday.

The football team began play in 2020 at Nissan Stadium, home of the Titans, and played its first eight league games on the road this season before opening the new venue with a game against Philadelphia.

Witherspoon grew up in the Nashville area.

“As a native of Tennessee, it is exciting to see how much growth and development has come to our home state,” she said in a statement. “The opportunity to go there as a family and watch a world-class team compete has been such an incredible experience.”

Henry has been with the Titans since 2016. He joins Mark Ingram (DC), Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City) and Russell Wilson (Seattle) as NFL players turned MLS co-owners.

Proprietor actors include Drew Carey (Seattle), Matthew McConaughey (Austin) and Will Ferrell (Los Angeles FC).
