Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo becomes part owner of Brewers a month after NBA Finals win

Following in the footsteps of several other star athletes, Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo is getting into the pro sports team ownership game. A month after winning the 2021 NBA Finals MVP and ending Milwaukee Bucks’ 50-year title drought, Antetokounmpo is joining the Milwaukee Brewers franchise as a minority owner.

Brewers chairman and principal owner Mark Attanasio, who bought the team in 2004 from Bud Selig, remains the majority owner of the ballclub while Antetokounmpo has purchased a minority stake…

“The City of Milwaukee means so much to me,” Antetokounmpo said. “I am honored to be joining the Brewers ownership group to further my commitment and dedication to this great community. I take great pride in my city and I’m excited about what we can build together.”

During the press conference, Attanasio pointed out that Antetokounmpo is the first new individual investor added to the ownership group since he purchased the team. He also said there was unanimous support among the current members of the ownership group to add Antetokounmpo.
