Ever the extravagant gift-giver, David Dobrik has stepped up with his birthday present for his assistant Natalie Mariduena, by buying her part-ownership of a professional soccer club.

In the past, David has gifted a ludicrous amount of cars, gifts and cash to his friends, fans and strangers alike.

David gifted Natalie her dream car, a baby blue Ford Bronco, for her birthday last year, so was probably a little lost for how to one-up himself this time around, especially considering how miserable a year most of us have had.

So, instead of buying her a material gift, David made Natalie a part-owner of a professional soccer club. Yes, really.

Natalie is David’s assistant and best friend — and she’s definitely reaping the rewards.

Angel City Football Club is one of the planned expansion teams in the National Women’s Soccer League, expected to begin play in the 2022 season.

Based in Los Angeles, California, the team has a number of high-profile investors including Hollywood actresses Natalie Portman and Eva Longoria — and, now Natalie from David’s vlog.

Tricking her by saying they’ve got a meeting, David instead blindfolds Natalie and takes her out into the middle of the Banc of Los Angeles pitch, which featured a huge banner on one side saying “Angel City FC proud owner, Natalie Mariduena.”

Naturally, she was completely shocked and clearly at a loss for words, simply asking David “what the heck” is happening.

What’s great about this gift is that it’s more of an investment than anything, with Natalie likely to make money from the club for as long as it exists, and without even having to spend a single dime herself.

It’s not clear how much of an ownership stake Natalie now owns in Angel City FC but, no matter the amount, it’s a seriously impressive present, and one she won’t be forgetting any time soon.

Starting in October, the community nights offered up 30,000 points, which could be redeemed for prizes.

For the duration of the three-month-long series, players could also register their teams for bi-weekly tournaments, which were held on the National Guard’s organizer page.

Every player will began with 1000 points, and was awarded 10 points for a win, or deducted 10 points for a loss. The player with the most points each night walked away with 10,000 points, 2nd and 3rd get 5,000, and 4th through 7th 2,500 each.

For the bi-weekly tournaments, starting on October 18, players were ranked on their wins/losses throughout this period. The top players proceeded to the next stage of the tournament and were rewarded with Points, from a pool of 30,000.


To make things interesting though, Missions were in-play for all matches, as a way to earn extra points. For example, actions such as getting headshots, clutches, bomb defuses, nade kills and more were rewarded.

Players were set a mission challenge, for example, get 3 clutches, and succeeding will earn points. Mor information on how missions work can be found here.
