According to KMBC, the Kansas City Chiefs have announced that Arrowhead Stadium will be at reduced capacity for the upcoming 2020 season. This is an attempt to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus.
In states that have reopened, there has been a rise in coronavirus positive tests.
“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. “While our goal all off season 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.”
The Chiefs also announced that they are making changes to their 2020 season ticket members. The team said that they will keep their payment for 2021.
However, this upcoming season the plan “offers the most flexibility and benefits for season-ticket-members for what will be an unprecedented NFL season in 2020.”
All of the season ticket holders will have their credits moved to 2021. However, they cannot re-seat every season ticket member during the upcoming season.
Here are some additional information for season ticket holders, according to KMBC:
- Season ticket members will be automatically included in a single-game pre-sale for any available seats in 2020, once a final capacity is determined.
- Their credit can be utilized to purchase single-game tickets for a reduced-capacity 2020 season, if they choose.
- They will receive their 2020 season-ticket-member box with exclusive gifts.
- Season-ticket members pricing will remain flat for 2021 and they will accrue a year of season-ticket members tenure for the 2020 season, regardless of if they attend any games or not in 2020.
- In the event that the club is permitted to host a full-capacity crowd for any potential playoff games, season-ticket members that did not opt for a refund will be given the first opportunity to purchase their seats.
- Parking or hospitality club passes purchased as part of a season-ticket membership can be managed exactly like tickets – either as a credit for 2021 or a full-refund, if requested.
“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,” Donovan said. “While it will be a different experience for everyone, we are looking forward to welcoming fans to Arrowhead this fall.”
