Alright, alright! McConaughey an Austin FC owner

Actor Matthew McConaughey is among four new investors to join Austin FC's ownership group.

The club's parent company, Two Oak Ventures, announced Austin resident McConaughey, entrepreneur Eddie Morgan, Dell executive Marius Haas and local oil and gas executive Bryan Sheffield as its newest members during a media event in the city on Friday. 

"It is my privilege to welcome my new partners to Austin FC," said majority partner and CEO Anthony Precourt in a club release. "This group knows and loves the city of Austin and the beautiful game. I can't think of anyone better to help us realize our ambitions as a soccer club for this entire community."

McConaughey, whose film credits include Dazed and Confused and True Detective, called the move an investment in the city's future.

"Austin FC is more than a quality investment for Austin, it's a quality investment in Austin. The most diverse and borderless game in the world is now coming to one of the most multi-cultural, creative and diverse cities in the world. Austin FC is a healthy investment in our city's culture and future," McConaughey said in a press release.

Austin will join MLS as the league's 27th franchise in 2021. The club hired former U.S. international Josh Wolff as its first coach last month.
