Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ wife, Brittany Mahomes, is being recognized for her work in women’s sports by the Sports Business Journal.

SBJ acknowledges the leaders in different industries as “Power Players,” and named Brittany Mahomes, as well as KC Current co-owners Angie and Chris Long, as “Power Players” in women’s sports.

“Private equity power couple Angie and Chris Long teamed with Mahomes, a former professional soccer player and the wife of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, to bring women’s soccer back to Kansas City in 2020,” SBJ wrote. “The trio has quickly moved to put down roots for their new club. In addition to a $15 million training facility set to open this year, the Current will soon break ground on a $117 million soccer-specific stadium, the first to be purpose-built for an NWSL team, along the downtown Kansas City riverfront”

Changing the game in Kansas City and beyond.
