Kansas City residents have committed to contributing $350 million towards the $800 million needed for stadium renovations, aiming to prevent the possible relocation of the Chiefs. They urge Hunt to consider enhancing his initial offer of $300 million.



The Kansas City Chiefs are facing a potential relocation if voters in Kansas City decide not to extend a regional sales tax on April 2. Mark Donovan, the president of the Chiefs, discussed the implications of this potential decision with KSHB 41. The sales tax extension, which amounts to 3/8 cents (equivalent to 38 cents for every $100) until 2064, could generate approximately $2 billion over the next 40 years.

If the extension is approved, the funds would be allocated towards building a new stadium for the Kansas City Royals in downtown Kansas City, as well as making improvements to the Chiefs’ NFL stadium.

Donovan outlined the Chiefs’ plans for utilizing the funds, which include enhancing the upper concourse, implementing heating and air conditioning systems, constructing a bridge to connect the concourse, installing larger video boards, adding a parking deck, and creating event spaces in the vicinity of Kauffman Stadium, the Royals’ current home ballpark. The estimated cost for these renovations is around $800 million.

The Hunt Family, owners of the Chiefs, have committed to contributing $300 million towards the $800 million project, with the remaining amount expected to be covered by the local residents through the sales tax extension. Notably, the Hunt Family’s estimated net worth is $25 billion. In the event that the sales tax extension is not approved, the Chiefs will need to explore alternative options for obtaining a more modernized stadium.

When questioned about the potential impact on the Kansas City Royals if the sales tax extension does not pass, Donovan expressed uncertainty about the baseball team’s plans but emphasized the need for the Chiefs to consider all available choices. He stated, “I just know for us the Chiefs, we would just have to look at all our options.”

The situation underscores the significance of the upcoming vote and its implications for both the Chiefs and the Royals. The potential relocation of a well-established sports team serves as a reminder of the far-reaching impact of local decisions on professional sports organizations and their communities. As the vote approaches, stakeholders and fans alike will be closely monitoring the outcome and its potential ramifications for Kansas City’s sports landscape.
