Toca Football Announces New Stakeholders

Angel City FC players Alyssa and Gisele Thompson sign first equity partnership with Toca

Costa Mesa-based Toca Football Inc. has signed a multiyear partnership with US National and Angel City FC players Alyssa and Gisele Thompson, who are now stakeholders in the indoor soccer center operator.

The sisters trained at Toca’s Costa Mesa center when they were young, and Alyssa went on to be the first high school player within the top pick in the National Women’s Soccer League draft when she signed with Angel City last year. The Thompson siblings were also the first high school athletes to sign a deal with Nike.

Their stake in Toca marks the sisters’ first equity partnership. The soccer firm’s other shareholders include Major League Soccer (MLS) and England national team striker and captain Harry Kane.

“With the involvement of these talented players, Toca is uniquely positioned to develop the next generation of soccer players and to grow the sport,” officials said in a statement.

Toca counts 39 indoor training facilities in North America and aims to reach around 200 to 300 locations in the future. The company is also working to expand its soccer entertainment and dining concept dubbed Toca Social, starting with a franchise group in Mexico.
