Kansas begins campaign to attract Chiefs across state lines

Efforts are being made to persuade the Chiefs to build a new stadium in Kansas, led by former Kansas House Speaker Ron Ryckman Jr. who is working with unnamed parties. This comes after a failed proposal to fund a renovation of Arrowhead Stadium through an extension of an existing sales tax. The new stadium could attract professional sports teams to the state, as 80 percent of the revenue from sports betting in Kansas is allocated to a new fund aimed at doing so.

The challenge will be to devise a plan that does not require voter approval, as demonstrated by the lack of support for subsidizing sports team owners in recent ballot measures. The possibility of the Chiefs relocating within the state is being explored as a potential solution to retaining the team in Kansas City, where their lease at Arrowhead Stadium expires after the 2030 season.
