Another Commanders ownership partner

Things are seemingly going well after Dan Snyder agreed to sell the Washington Commanders to an ownership group led by Josh Harris for $6.05 billion. There wasn’t much wrong with the first batch of paperwork surrounding the sale according to multiple reports, so the process should be pretty straightforward from here on out.

7News sports anchor Scott Abraham revealed another member of the group to become a limited partner. Mark Ein, the owner of the Washington Kastles, is a close friend of Harris and has agreed to become a limited partner after being described as a “key piece of the puzzle”.

"“(Mark) Ein, who is the Citi Open tennis tournament chairman and owner of the Washington Kastles, has been friends with (Josh) Harris since their childhood growing up together in Montgomery County. Together they attended the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Ein is a key piece to the puzzle that brought the group together. He has friendships with Harris and Mitchell Rales, who is the other central figure in this bid.”4"

This is another figure with experience in the business and sporting world that could be of use. So looking at the confirmed names in the group so far, there appears to be far better infrastructure than at any stage during Snyder’s reign of terror – something the Commanders desperately need.

Ein’s voice will be a trusted one given his long-running personal relationship with Harris. And this news should be another boost to a fanbase that is eagerly awaiting official confirmation.
