NFL wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. now owns a stake in Mexican soccer’s Club Necaxa and Major League Pickleball’s expansion franchise in Washington D.C., according to multiple people familiar with the deal.
Beckham bought into the investor group led by Americans Al Tylis and Sam Porter. The group, which fully owns the D.C. pickleball team, purchased a 50% stake in Necaxa at a valuation in the low nine figures at the end of 2021. The soccer club, based in Aguascalientes, was valued at $150 million in 2021 when it sold a 1% equity stake for $1.5 million via NFT; currently the club is valued in the mid- to low-$200 million range.
