Mister Red, Latest South Florida Personality to Join the World Jai-Alai League List of Owners

MIAMI, Feb. 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Alexander Arias, also known as Mister Red, is the latest South Florida personality to join the list of notable owners championing the world’s fastest ball sport. Arias joins the World Jai-Alai League as the co-owner of the Chargers team, alongside Miguel Zulueta of Lifestyle Miami. The Chargers currently rank at the top of the leaderboard for the six teams competing in the 2024 Spring 2024 Battle Court season.

“This game is fast-paced, thrilling and not your abuelo’s jai-alai,” said Arias. “Of all the roles that I’ve taken on, owner of a jai-alai team, a sport with such a rich history in the 305, seems surreal and full circle all at the same time.” 

Arias, the comedic content creator whose material regularly taps into his Hispanic upbringing, has earned a loyal fan base and amassed over one million combined followers on Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook. He can be seen regularly cheering on his team at the Magic City Fronton on their Friday game nights. The WJAL has seen a surge of interest in the past year, bringing on notable ambassadors, investors and team owners.

In addition to Arias and Zulueta, the Spring 2024 team owners include retired NFL legends, Ray Lewis and Lawrence Taylor, as co-owners of the Warriors; three-time NBA champion Udonis Haslem as owner of the Renegades; Chris Cote, the longtime producer of the “Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz,’ as owner of the Cyclones alongside Mike RyanK. MarieLa Gringa Más Latina” from TU 94.9FM and Grammy Award-winning recording artist Maffio as owners of the Devils; and WJAL as owner of the Fireballs.

“Mister Red is a great complement to the league’s group of ambassadors,” said Miguel Zulueta, co-owner of the Chargers team. “He is uniquely tuned into South Florida’s pulse and his levity and quick wit are both relatable and integral to attracting a new generation of fans.”
