Kansas Strategizes a Plan to Steal the Chiefs

Recently, voters in Jackson County, Missouri rejected a proposal to fund renovations at Arrowhead Stadium. This decision has left the Kansas City Chiefs continuing to show strong interest in attracting the team to their state. In response, legislators in Kansas are planning to use an upcoming special session to set the stage for a potential bid to bring the Chiefs to Kansas.

The proposed plan in Kansas would utilize sales tax and revenue bonds with 30-year terms to cover the costs of constructing a new stadium. However, a major point of contention could arise over the idea of using bonds to fully finance the project, leaving the Chiefs with no financial responsibility. Considering the high price tag of nearly $3 billion for a new stadium, it may be necessary for the team to make some level of private investment.

In order to persuade the Chiefs to leave Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas will likely need to make a bold and significant offer. It is also possible that Kansas’s efforts to attract the Chiefs could prompt Missouri to make a competitive bid to keep the team in their state. The battle to secure the Chiefs could prove to be a high-stakes competition between the two states.
