Julie Uhrman is the Co-Founder and President of Angel City Football Club (ACFC), Los Angeles' newest professional women's soccer team set to debut in Spring 2022 in the NWSL. Uhrman founded ACFC with Academy Award-winning actress and activist Natalie Portman, technology venture capitalist Kara Nortman, and venture capitalist, 776 founder & Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. ACFC is one of the only majority female-founded and run professional sports teams in the world.
Before ACFC, Uhrman served as the EVP and General Manager of OTT Ventures at Lionsgate, Head of Platform Business Development at Jaunt, a virtual reality content startup, and founder of I OUYA, a pioneering Android-based game console. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Uhrman attributes her entrepreneurial spirit to her stepfather's example of starting his own company. From early on, it was ingrained in Uhrman to be her own boss.
Outside of running Angel City FC and between shuttling her two children between activities across Los Angeles, Uhrman can be found on the basketball court (note: she was a member of the 1994 NCAA Basketball Div III National Runner Up at Wash U), learning how to dominate her favorite new skill, Teqball, brushing up her soccer skills and running up and down the LA canyons with the family’s beloved pup, Widget.
