Ownership

Mohamed Mansour

The British-Egyptian entrepreneur Mohamed Mansour jointly owns San Diego’s MLS club through his UK-based family office, Man Capital, which invests with impact and purpose across a range of sectors including education, technology, healthcare, logistics and clean energy, as well as soccer.

The firm has an established track record in soccer as the owner of Right to Dream, one of the most purpose-driven organisations in the sport. The Right to Dream community operates soccer academies, schools and professional teams in Denmark, Ghana and Egypt. A Right to Dream academy in San Diego will be an integral feature of the new venture.

In addition, Man Capital owns significant assets in California through its logistics company, Vanguard Logistics, and a venture capital fund that it helped to set up in 2017 called 1984 Ventures, which in turn supports more than 50 tech start-ups. Man Capital was an early investor in future Silicon Valley giants such as Facebook, Airbnb and Twitter.

Social impact, environmental investment, and nurturing the next generation have always been at the core of Mr Mansour’s investment strategy.
