Anuel AA and his manager Frabian Eli have become the new owners of Puerto Rican basketball team Capitanes de Arecibo, both parties confirmed over the weekend.

Just before the 2021 Baloncesto Superior Nacional season kicks off in July, the chart-topping Puerto Rican star and Eli will take the reins of the team that in the past decade has won four league championships.

"Frabian and I will do everything in our hands to continue taking this team to other levels," Anuel said in a press conference. Eli added, "For us it's an honor to continue this legacy. We promise to keep the culture and traditions of Arecibo and los Capitanes."

Anuel joins the likes of Bad Bunny -- who in May became the co-owner of Puerto Rico’s basketball team Los Cangrejeros de Santurce, which is also part of the Baloncesto Superior Nacional league -- Gloria Estefan, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez, who all own sports teams.
