The former New York Giants quarterback joined the New York and New Jersey-based team as a minority owner in August 2022. In a video released by Gotham FC at the time, he credited daughters Caroline, Lucy and oldest Ava, 12, for making the decision.
"As a dad, I want to make sure that my daughters have all the athletic opportunities that I was blessed with," said Manning, who also shares son Charlie, 4, with wife Abby McGrew.
He added: "We're driving what happens next in the world's game with some of the greatest athletes in the game, and I can't imagine what's more exciting than being a part of that."
Speaking with PEOPLE last month, Manning talked about how he and his wife are "really raising them the way we were raised — playing a ton of sports."
"Obviously you have your school work, which is number one, but I like to keep them busy and active, trying to find out what they are passionate about. Each kid kind of has their own sport or activity that they love to do," the father of four said.
"Right now, we're full throttle into swimming. We have lacrosse going on a little bit. My youngest daughter Caroline is a hockey player, so she's playing and enjoying some ice time, getting ready for the winter," he shared. "And then I got my little guy, Charlie, who is playing some flag football. So it's a busy time, the weeks are busy."
"It's good that I get to be around a more in the afternoons and help with getting them to their sports. And I found out that just getting some car time with my kids can be the best time to get that time and that chat in with them, get to know what's going on in their day and at school," Manning said. "It's been a lot of fun for me."
