As Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes continues his dizzying rise to the top of the sports world, his group Patrick Mahomes Fans By GASN Sports is now the third largest NFL group on all of Facebook.
While it’s clear that Mahomes transcends both the Kansas City Chiefs and even football itself, this is a staggering accomplishment. The Patrick Mahomes Fans group currently has 142.2 thousand members and is growing at a rate of over a hundred per day. By comparison, Lebron James’ flagship group Lebron James Nation has 222 thousand members and follows a player that has been playing professionally for 18 years.
The Patrick Mahomes Fans (By GASN Sports) group was started by life-long Chiefs fans and sports media personalities Noah Gronniger and Clint Switzer not long after Mahomes was drafted #10 overall back in 2017.
“We really believed that Mahomes would become a superstar and we wanted to provide a place where fans could keep up with news, read articles and be up to date on all things Patrick.” Co-founder Noah Gronniger stated.
The group currently has Mahomes’ agent, Leigh Steinberg as a moderator and former Chiefs greats like Christian Okoye and J.J. Birden are heavily involved as well as members of Mahomes’ immediate family.
