KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) — Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has a new investment.
The Kansas City Current announced Tuesday that Mahomes joined his wife Brittany in the club’s ownership group. The move makes Mahomes the first active NFL player to have a stake in an NWSL team.
“I am thankful for the chance to join my wife as part of the Kansas City Current’s ownership team,” Mahomes said. “Brittany and the Longs have done an incredible job building a world-class organization. I am excited to join another championship-caliber club as it continues to make history.”
The Mahomes already made the Current a family event. Mahomes wore “Matthews” jerseys to past matches to support his then-fiancé’s ownership in the team. They’ve also taken daughter Sterling to matches and Current practices.
The Kansas City Current is in the middle of building a new stadium dedicated to the team along Kansas City’s riverfront. It is expected to open in 2024.
The organization was founded two years ago by an ownership group made up of Angie Long, Chris Long and Brittany Mahomes. The team also made it to the NWSL Championship last season.
