Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has found a way to spend a little of the money coming his way.

Mahomes signed an extension through 2031 earlier this month that can pay him up to $503 million and he’s using some of that cash to become a professional team owner in the other sport that is close to his family’s heart. The Kansas City Royals announced on Tuesday that Mahomes has become a part-owner of the team.

“I’m honored to become a part owner of the Kansas City Royals,” Mahomes said in a statement. “I love this city and the people of this great town. This opportunity allows me to deepen my roots in this community, which is something I’m excited to do.”

Mahomes’ father Pat spent 11 years as a pitcher in the major leagues, but never had a stint with the Royals.

  1. Being a Falcons fan I have to admit that I admire Pat Mahomes and what he represents on and off the field. Humble and talented. You Chiefs fans should be ecstatic, js

  2. Probably just a tiny piece though…even with he recent contract, he does not have that much money (relatively speaking) on hand yet to buy a huge chunk of a $1B+ valued team.

    He probably got it at a bargain price just to be a big name associated with the team.

  3. As a lifelong Chiefs hater, it’s hard not to love this guy. He is the king of Missouri.

  4. Not so much buying, but investing. As people eventually let go of their shares, he’d probably do well to scoop them up as they leave.

    This man is unbelievably wise beyond his years.

  5. Now Mahomes owns 4 sports franchises. The Royals, the Chargers, the Raiders and the Broncos.

  6. This kid is incredibly smart. He’s doing everything right. His dad has to be advising him among others. He’s listening. So glad he’s in KC. He admits he still needs to get better. Kind of scary.
