Angel City is a three-part documentary that looks at the groundbreaking LA-based professional women’s soccer team, Angel City Football Club (ACFC). Actor Natalie Portman, venture capitalist Kara Nortman, and gaming entrepreneur Julie Uhrman founded ACFC in September 2020, beginning what would be the largest majority-female ownership group in professional sports. The team’s ownership includes 14 former US Women’s National Team players as investors. From the ACFC origin story through their inaugural season in 2022, the docuseries goes behind the scenes of the team, revealing the candid passion and grit that built the franchise from scratch. From facility challenges to team injuries and filling a stadium, the owners, coaching staff, and athletes had their work cut out for them but are proving that you can lead with passion and purpose and still be successful. Together they are driven to make a safe and competitive space for women athletes, both current and future, and show that there can be a new model for women’s sports.
