Yesterday, Tim Howard became the second player-owner in the world when he became a minority owner of USL soccer club Memphis 901 FC, and will play in the 2020 season.
He was named the club’s sporting director and general manager last December, and now has a craving to get back on the field and see some more action between the posts. Howard followed in Didier Drogba’s footsteps when he played for Phoenix Rising for the 2017-2018 season while holding part ownership of the club.
TIM HOWARD IS COMING TO PITTSBURGH ON 5/16 TO PLAY THE RIVERHOUNDS!!! GET YOUR TICKETS BEFORE THEY SELL OUT!!!!
Tim Howard is the former starting goalie for the United States National Team who also plated for Manchester Untied, and Everton before returning to the states to play for Colorado Rapids before his retirement. He has made over 120 appearances for the US National Team, and the most appearances he had made for a club was for Everton from 2006 to 2016 with 354 appearances. Howard also appeared in the 2010 and 2016 FIFA World Cups where the US Mens National Team made the Round of 16. Howard also set the world cup record for most saves in a match with 15 against Belgium.
