Kansas begins campaign to attract Chiefs across state lines

The Chiefs are being encouraged to build a new stadium in Kansas, with the effort led by former Kansas House Speaker Ron Ryckman Jr. who is working with unnamed parties. This comes after a failed proposal to fund a renovation of Arrowhead Stadium through an extension of an existing sales tax.

Since sports betting was legalized in Kansas, 80% of the revenue has been allocated to a new fund aimed at attracting professional sports teams to the state, which could reach $10 million by 2025. Additional measures may be considered to use taxpayer money to fund a new stadium. However, there will be a challenge in devising a plan that does not require voter approval, as demonstrated by the lack of support for subsidizing sports team owners in recent ballot measures.

The urgency to retain the Chiefs in Kansas City is heightened by the fact that their lease at Arrowhead Stadium expires after the 2030 season. The possibility of relocating within the state is being explored as a potential solution to retain the team in Kansas.
