Which soccer team does Will Ferrell support?
Will Ferrell was in attendance for Manchester City's Premier League game against Aston Villa on Sunday, February 12, 2023.
While talking to Sky Sports at the Etihad Stadium in the presence of Manchester United legends Gary Neville and Roy Keane, he revealed that he is attending the game as a co-owner of current MLS champions LAFC and praised the quality of the league.
Ferrell added on his presence at the Etihad Stadium: "I’m on a recruiting trip for LAFC, I’m just seeing if they measure up to MLS. I watch a fair amount [of football], I don’t really have a side over here, I just enjoy following the storylines. It’s obviously a very good league, I’m going to go out on a limb and say there are some very good teams and players here."
