Businesswoman Laurene Powell Jobs Buying Into NBA, NHL, WNBA With MSE

By Barry Janoff

October 3, 2017: Monumental Sports & Entertainment, under the majority ownership of Ted Leonsis, has agreed to sell a 20% stake to Laurene Powell Jobs, president of the Emerson Collective and widow of former Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs.

Among its assets, Monumental Sports & Entertainment owns the NBA’s Washington Wizards, the NHL’s Washington Capitals, WNBA’s Mystics and Capital One Arena.

The agreement with Powell Jobs is pending approval from the NBA and NHL.

“That someone of Laurene’s impressive caliber is interested in coming into the ownership group further validates that Monumental Sports & Entertainment is continuing to build one of the most consequential, most valuable sports and entertainment companies in the world,” Monumental Sports & Entertainment said in a statement.

Powell Jobs has a net worth of $17.8 billion, according to Bloomberg Financial.

If approved, Powell Jobs would be the second-largest stakeholder in Monumental Sports & Entertainment behind chairman and CEO Leonsis. The company has 19 stakeholders, per MSE.

Monumental Sports & Entertainment and Capital One in August unveiled a $100 million, ten-year deal with Capital One for among rights to the venue, formerly Verizon Center, along with other marketing and business assets.

The venue opened in 1997 as the MCI Center, a company that later was acquired by Verizon.

The 20,000-seat multi-purpose sports and entertainment venue in downtown Washington, D.C. hosts an average of 220 events per year.

The venue has been named to host the A-10 men’s basketball tournament in March 2018 and the East regionals of the 2019 NCAA men’s basketball tournament.

In addition to the Wizards and Capitals, it also is home to the Georgetown University men’s basketball team.

The Mystics will continue to play there until their new arena opens in Washington D.C.'s Ward 8, scheduled for 2018. It also will be used as a practice facility for the Wizards.
