Arrowhead Stadium and the state of Missouri have been the home of the Chiefs for the last 49 years, but that might be changing fairly soon.
While at the NFL’s annual league meeting in Florida Tuesday, team president Mark Donovan said the franchise has considered new stadium options in the state of Kansas, per The Ringer’s Kevin Clark. He added that developers from Kansas have brought forward several options for a new stadium.
The team’s lease at Arrowhead expires in 2031.
Local fans in Kansas City would be devastated if its football franchise crossed state lines, which is why most of them spoek against this on Twitter.
Kansas City mayor Quinton Lucas responded to reports of Chiefs considering new stadium options in Kansas when Arrowhead Stadium’s lease expires in 2031.
“Kansas City has proudly hosted the Chiefs since the early 1960s,” Lucas wrote. “We look forward to working with the Chiefs, our state of Missouri partners, and local officials to ensure the Chiefs remain home in Kansas City and Missouri for generations to come.”
There’s plenty of time to figure this thing out.
