Kansas City Chiefs announce Arrowhead Stadium will be under reduced-capacity plan for the coming season
While ticket demands will be at an all-time in Kansas City this fall as the Chiefs gear up for a title defense, the franchise announced on Wednesday that Arrowhead Stadium will be under a reduced-capacity plan for the coming season.
The team has yet to specify how reduced Arrowhead Stadium will be in 2020 for fans but the current capacity of the facility is 76,416.
“People around the country and around the world are getting accustomed to a constantly changing environment and the same goes for all of us in Chiefs Kingdom,” Chiefs President Mark Donovan said in a prepared statement. “While our goal all offseason was to have a full stadium as we begin our Super Bowl title defense, it is out of consideration of the health and safety of our fans, employees, coaches and players that we move forward with a reduced-capacity plan that adheres to local guidelines and expert recommendations.
“As we looked at ways to navigate this unusual season, our first priority was to offer a fair and flexible plan for our loyal and valued Season Ticket Members, and we believe we accomplished that. While it will be a different experience for everyone, we are looking forward to welcoming fans to Arrowhead this fall.”
This news is relevant for two SEC teams as Arkansas and Missouri are scheduled to meet in Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 28 during the final weekend of the regular season.
