Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Mahomes had a championship-caliber weekend celebrating historic milestones. In the afternoon, the power couple reveled in the groundbreaking inaugural match at CPKC Stadium – the first-ever venue purposefully constructed for a women’s professional sports team as co-owners of the KC Current. The duo couldn’t have been happier with the way things unfolded for them but the Mahomes weren’t done emphatically backing their teams.

That evening, they transitioned from their inner soccer fanatic to animated supporters of the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Center. Indulging in various sports apart from football, the Mahomes couple were seen in their element as the NFL enjoys the off-season, cheering for the Mavs, especially the star player Luka Doncic.

After the historic events and emotional thrill ride of the KC Current’s stadium opener, one might have expected Patrick and Brittany Mahomes to revel in the momentous occasion. But their passion for local sports knows no bounds. That same evening, the power couple transitioned to expressive fans at the American Airlines Center, supplying a thunderous encore of cheers to the Dallas Mavericks’ clash with the Denver Nuggets.

With the game knotted late, Luka Doncic etched his name into the night’s downtown lore. The Mavericks’ talisman sank back-to-back threes in crunch time, each more captivating than the last, to snatch the lead. The second, an off-balanced, step-back dagger from the wing sent Patrick Mahomes into hysterics – leaping out of his courtside seat in euphoric celebration of the Slovenian’s shotmaking wizardry.

For the Chiefs quarterback and an ardent sports lover, Doncic’s flair for the dramatic served as the cherry on top of a special Kansas City Saturday. “This game is wild!” Mahomes exclaimed on social media amid the pulsating back-and-forth final minutes, with the Mavericks ultimately hanging on 107-105. His renowned competitive fire extends far beyond the gridiron.
