Could you imagine Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes tossing 4 four touchdowns in a game and then pumping up the home crowd that not only isn’t at Arrowhead Stadium but not even in Missouri?

Another state would love to have the Kansas City Chiefs, and it is doing everything possible to make it happen.

This week, Kansas lawmakers approved a bipartisan plan to help the Kansas City Chiefs build a new stadium, not in Missouri, but in Kansas.

Kansas legislators approved a sneaky plan to lure the Chiefs and the Kansas City Royals away from Missouri by passing a measure to authorize state bonds to help finance new stadiums and practice facilities for both teams.

The bill that was passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature would allow Kansas to issue bonds to cover up to 70% of the costs of a new stadium and pay them off over 30 years with revenues from sports betting, state lottery ticket sales, and new sales and alcohol taxes from the districts built around the new stadiums.

Governor Laura Kelly released a statement on the passing of that measure, via ESPN:

 


“I pledged to work with members of both parties on policies that are beneficial to Kansas,” she said. “The bipartisan effort to invite the Chiefs and Royals to Kansas shows we’re all-in on keeping our beloved teams in the Kansas City metro.

“Kansas now has the opportunity to become a professional sports powerhouse with the Chiefs and Royals potentially joining Sporting KC as major league attractions, all with robust, revenue-generating entertainment districts surrounding them providing new jobs, new visitors, and new revenues that boost the Kansas economy.”

Dallas Mayor Pushes For Kansas City Chiefs To Come Back To Texas

Dallas mayor Eric Johnson was the first to express his desire for the Chiefs to return to Texas.

Earlier this year, Jackson County, Missouri, voters rejected the extension of a sales tax to help pay for the renovation of Arrowhead Stadium, so Johnson courted the team back to Dallas.

After the vote, Johnson posted on social media, “Welcome home, Dallas Texans!”

Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt, who lives in Dallas, previously revealed the team is looking at new options once the Arrowhead Stadium lease expires in 2030.

According to Lukas Weese of TheAthletic.com, Johnson called it a “serious opportunity” for the Chiefs to solve their stadium situation.
