Patrick Mahomes has done it again. No stranger to investing in other sports franchises, the Kansas City Chiefs star has now made yet another foray into the ownership world and it appears he has targeted the women's soccer space. Mahomes, along with his wife Brittany, has invested in a women's soccer team, which is an exciting development for the sport.
The team in question is the Utah Royals FC, a team that is part of the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) and is based in Salt Lake City. The Royals FC made it to the NWSL Championship last season and it appears that Mahomes' investment has already had an impact on the team's performance.
Mahomes' investment in the team comes at an interesting time for the player himself. The Chiefs are currently in the running for the AFC playoffs and with a win over the Buffalo Bills on Monday night, they could secure the No. 1 seed in the conference. However, if Buffalo wins, the Chiefs will move back into No. 2 with a Saturday matchup against the Raiders on tap. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes was asked about the AFC matchup and he said that he was not too emotionally invested in the game.
"I try not to be too invested in it. It's going to be a great football game with two great teams. And teams that you're probably going to see in the playoffs," said Mahomes.
Mahomes' high-ankle sprain opened the door for the veteran quarterback Chad Henne to get some game experience. But Henne said that the Chiefs always have faith in Mahomes and that they invest a lot in him. "They invest a lot not only in our Chiefs but our KC Current too," said Henne.
Mahomes' investment in the Royals FC isn't the only thing he has done in the sports world. He also owns part of Sporting KC, Kansas City Royals and just invested in a venture capital fund with fellow NFL stars Tom Brady and Russell Wilson. According to the Sports Business Journal, the fund will focus on agricultural investment.
It's clear that Mahomes is investing his fortune in other areas beyond football. His latest investment in the Royals FC is yet another example of how he is using his financial success to help the sport of women's soccer. With the team making it to the NWSL Championship last season, it appears that Mahomes' investment will pay off in the long run.
In conclusion, Patrick Mahomes has made yet another major investment in the world of sports. This time, he has invested in a women's soccer team, the Utah Royals FC. His investment in the team comes at an interesting time for the player, as the Chiefs are currently in the running for the AFC playoffs. Along with the Royals FC, Mahomes also owns part of Sporting KC, Kansas City Royals and just invested in a venture capital fund with Tom Brady and Russell Wilson that will focus on agricultural investment.
