Kansas begins campaign to attract Chiefs across state lines

Potential for a New Stadium in Kansas City: How Legalizing Sports Betting May Help Land the Chiefs

The Kansas legislature recently legalized sports betting, and the revenue generated from this new venture has been allocated towards attracting professional sports teams to the state. A new fund has been established with a goal of $10 million by 2025, which could be used to fund a stadium for a sports team in Kansas.

However, it is important to note that any plan to use taxpayer money for stadium funding must be carefully considered. In recent ballot measures, there was little support for subsidizing sports team owners. Therefore, any proposal must be designed in such a way that it can be approved by voters without facing opposition.

Former Kansas House Speaker Ron Ryckman Jr. is leading efforts to convince the Chiefs to build a new stadium in Kansas City. He is working with unnamed parties and believes that the state is well-positioned to persuade the team to relocate within its borders. The lease on Arrowhead Stadium expires after the 2030 season, adding urgency to discussions about the team’s future in Kansas City.
