Patrick Mahomes, star quarterback for the National Football League’s Kansas City Chiefs, has expanded his investment portfolio and local presence in Kansas City, Missouri, by acquiring an equity stake in the National Women's Soccer League's Kansas City Current.

As such, Mahomes is the first active NFL player to have equity in an NWSL team.

Kansas City Current is majority owned by Chris and Angie Long, while Mahomes' wife Brittany is also a founding investor.

“I am thankful for the chance to join my wife as part of the Kansas City Current’s ownership team,” Patrick 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.”

Mahomes is also part of the ownership groups of Major League Baseball’s Kansas City Royals and Major League Soccer’s Sporting Kansas City, Major League Pickleball, and has investments in wearable technology provider Whoop, live sports mobile platform Buzzer, recovery and performance technology company Hyperice, and Texas-based financial services company American State Bank, among others.

In 2020, he signed the largest-ever contract in the history of American pro sports. He also has a series of endorsement deals such as Hunt’s, Oakley, Essentia Water, State Farm, DirecTV, Adidas, and Head & Shoulders.

“Patrick is obviously a once-in-a-generation athlete and someone who has had an immeasurable impact on the Kansas City community,” said Angie and Chris Long. “Working with Brittany has been a blessing. We are elated to now partner with Patrick too. The Mahomes are truly a remarkable family.”

The costs of the club’s planned soccer-specific stadium have risen by $47m (€44m) to $117m, it emerged last year.
