Fans from near and far can now become part owners of the first, purpose-driven pro sports club in the United States, alongside NFL legend Marshawn Lynch and global rap star G-Eazy, by heading to wefunder.com/oakland for as little as $100. All details are now live on the Wefunder platform and we encourage everyone, 18 and up, who is interested to familiarize themselves with the opportunities, benefits, perks and risks of Community Investment Rounds. We are so excited to welcome new owners to the family!
“Oakland Roots and Soul have been hella good examples of Town Bidness,” said Roots and Soul Investor Marshawn Lynch. “They’ve been in the streets puttin in work, they’ve included the Town of da’ past and the Town of da’ future. Getting behind these teams is not just about them, it’s about every sport team from the little ones at the park, to high school, college teams and so on. It gives our youth something to look up to and be proud of. We need that in da’ Town now more than ever.”
Our purpose-driven approach, iconic design and vibrant game day experience rooted in Oakland culture have created a new generation of diverse, passionate fans who have embraced Roots and Soul as the future of Oakland sports. We have submitted our proposal to build The Town’s first, dedicated, pro soccer stadium, we are ready for the next exciting phase in our growth and we want YOU to be a part of it.
“This is truly special…The Town can own the team that functions in their city,” said Roots and Soul Investor G-Eazy. “It’s the first time it has happened in Oakland and I am excited to see others become owners too.”
