Celebrity takeovers are increasing in modern football, with the burgeoning football market and the associated pull of the sport all over the world proving hugely popular for entrepreneurs with money to utilize.
Perhaps the highest-profile takeover in recent times was the acquisition of English National League side Wrexham FC, who now have none other than Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney at the helm.
This is becoming a worldwide trend as sides look to follow. The news that Indonesian third-tier side Persikota Tangerang had been taken over by Prilly Latuconsina has reverberated around the footballing fraternity in Asia and beyond.
At the age of just 25, Latuconsina has forged an incredibly successful career for herself, and her involvement at Persikota Tangerang is believed to be very much a long-term project for all involved.
Exactly how much involvement Latuconsina will have in the day-to-day running of Persikota Tangerang remains to be seen, with her other existing commitments certain to take up plenty of her time.
However, there is an expectation that she will be present where possible and her financial pulling power could be hugely influential for Persikota Tangerang moving forward as they look to climb the Indonesian footballing pyramid.
The current parallels between where Persikota Tangerang are as a club and where their new owner Latuconsina is in her career can be drawn instantly.
Having first formed in 1994, Persikota Tangerang have steadily moved through the divisions in Indonesian football and now ply their trade in Liga 3 – having come up through the Banten zone last season.
Despite not too many honors or trophies to speak of, they are clearly a side on the up and they will be eager to continue their rise through the divisions.
Speaking of people on the up, Latuconsina has seen her career soar since becoming a household name for her role in Get Married: The Series in 2012.
Even more success came soon afterwards as she starred in Ganteng-Ganteng Serigala in 2014, and her stock has continued to rise ever since.
Balancing a hugely successful singing career with her ever-evolving acting, she is continually growing in stature, something that she will be hoping her new side Persikota Tangerang will be doing in the future.
