Kansas City Chiefs approached to consider moving to Kansas, per reports

Of all the changes coming to the Kansas City Chiefs in the offseason — this was not a trade anyone expected. But, according to reports from the NFL owners meetings happening now in Florida, a new draft could be on the way. A draft of plans for a new stadium. Could the Kansas City Chiefs be bidding adieu to Arrowhead? According to a tweet from Kevin Clark, host of the Ringer NFL show, Chiefs President Mark Donovan said the team has been approached by developers and has considered new options in Kansas. Clark wrote, “when asked…about potential new stadium options, said the team has considered options in the state of Kansas. They like the Arrowhead legacy of Lamar Hunt’s stadium, but have been pitched by Kansas developers on a bunch of options. Something to watch.” Something to watch, indeed. A heated border war between Kansas and Missouri has resulted in a number of business-related moves from state to state. And Missouri has fought for years to remind the rest of the country that the legendary Kansas City, with the landmarks, sports teams, and prestige, is not actually in Kansas. Welcome to the “Show Me” state, here’s your map. But could the beloved Kansas City, Missouri, sports team jump ship across the state line into Kansas? Kansas City, Missouri, Mayor Quinton Lucas says no, in a response to Clark.”Kansas City has proudly hosted the Chiefs since the early 1960s,” Lucas said in a tweet. “We look forward to looking 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.”While all eyes remain on the Kansas City Royals and the potential for a new downtown baseball stadium (yes, in Missouri), Chiefs Kingdom will now have to add Arrowhead Stadium to its watch list for potential changes.
