Carey signs on to invest in Seattle expansion team

SEATTLE -- Drew Carey's already proven himself to be a soccer nut, following the U.S. team internationally and regularly showing up to watch Los Angeles Galaxy games.

Now, the comedian and game-show host is financially invested in the sport.

Carey will be a minority owner in the new MLS expansion team in Seattle. The ownership group comprises Carey, Seattle Seahawks' owner Paul Allen, Seattle Sounders owner Adrian Hanauer and Hollywood producer Joe Roth. Roth will be the majority owner.

"Starting in 2009, I'm rooting for my money," Carey said Monday.

The new franchise, which will begin play in 2009, was announced Friday and was to be formally introduced Tuesday. But Carey was at Monday night's Seahawks game against San Francisco at Qwest Field, which will be the home of the to-be-named franchise.

In August, Carey injured his arm on the set of "The Price Is Right." Instead of going to the hospital, he went to lunch with Roth about the possibility of getting involved with the ownership group.

Carey pitched the idea of having a fan membership -- similar to FC Barcelona -- where fans have a say in the direction of the franchise, including voting for the general manager every four years.

When Roth agreed to the idea, Carey signed on financially.

"We're going to let the fans control who the general manager is and whether he is hired for a four-year period," Carey said. "Adrian is going to be the general manager, and he's one of the owners, but four years from now ... they might vote him out."

Carey also had one other condition: The team will have a marching band.
