Big Game Management chairman and CEO Eddie Kim is set to own a professional sports franchise as the WUBA set the stage for a new Los Angeles division.
Kim will become the first Korean-American majority owner of a team in the history of the league.
"The UBA has a large following in the Asian community from Japan, Philippians, Taiwan and China", said President Christy Luxe. We felt it was absolutely necessary to bring this same energy to the WUBA.
