Will Ferrell bought a piece of an expansion MLS Los Angeles franchise set to begin play in 2018. The team will be called LAFC.

Ferrell was announced as a co-owner of the club, which held their opening press conference Thursday. Although Ferrell isn’t the only celeb owner of LAFC, Magic Johnson who seems to have a piece of every LA sports team is and owner, along with Normar Garciaparra, Mia Hamm Garciaparra and Tony Robbins.

Farrell says he's never been a part owner in anything, except for an '84 Toyota Camry. #LAFC
