Patrick Mahomes’ desire for football extends far beyond his career.
The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback and two-time Super Bowl champion told ESPN that he plans to explore ownership of an NFL team after he retires.
“Ultimately, when I’m done playing,” Mahomes said of owning an NFL team. “I think Tom (Brady) is trying to do that right now, but that’s definitely where you want to be. I love the game and want to give back in any way I can. When I’m done playing, obviously I’m going to be a Chiefs fan, but I also want to have that competitive edge that I’ve had my whole life.
In addition to TB12 and Brady Brand, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady operates across four sports in the U.S. and overseas . Brady owns shares in the Las Vegas Raiders (NFL), Las Vegas Aces (WNBA), Vegas Night Owls (MLP) and Birmingham City Football Club (EFL Championship).
Mahomes, aware of the difficulties of owning an NFL franchise, said he is open to owning other sports.
The 28-year-old already has ownership stakes in other Kansas City teams. Mahomes is a part-owner of the Kansas City Royals (MLB), Currents (NWSL) and Sporting Kansas City (MLS).
“I always look around,” Mahomes said. “When I was playing, I couldn’t do that in the NFL, so I was always looking for other sports. It’s hard trying to keep up with all the sports, the NBA, all the different types of stuff, but I’m always on my toes. . If they give me a chance, I’ll take it.”
Mahomes’ business portfolio got a major upgrade this week after investing in the Alpine Formula One team. Mahomes joins Chiefs teammate Travis Kelce and golfer Rory McIlroy in the new venture, citing Formula One’s rapid growth as a reason for the investment.
“I think everyone can see the appeal,” Mahomes said of his F1 ownership. “I’ve been able to play in a few games now. Just look around and watch Drive to Survive on Netflix and you’ll see how competitive it is. Any time you get a chance to be a part of it.
Mahomes signed a lucrative 10-year, $450 million contract extension in 2020 that will keep him playing for another seven years. However, Mahomes recently restructured the deal and signed a contract worth $218.1 million through 2026.
As Mahomes thrives on the field, so does his business resume. As for NFL ownership, it may not be long before he starts exploring the business.
