Chiefs to lower ticket prices

Quite honestly, this is pretty stunning, but also pretty necessary. Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride is reporting that the Kansas City Chiefs will not be increasing ticket prices for the 2011 NFL season. In fact, Chiefs’ COO Mark Donovan was quoted by Thorman saying that the club/loge level and lower level corner endzone seating were “mispriced”.

This is really great news. I’ve been very disappointed watching the Chiefs home games. The club level always looks empty. It is encouraging to see them taking responsibility and righting their wrong. In my opinion, Clark Hunt has hit a home run so far in his short stint as owner and CEO of our beloved Chiefs. From the renovations at Arrowhead, to hiring Scott Pioli and Todd Haley and to today’s developments, he’s done a fantastic job.

The Chiefs have also started telling season ticket holders that the Chiefs are now taking playoff ticket deposits.

  • Honestly, I’m not sure prices are why the old seats are always “empty.” I’ve sat up there. During games in the winter – there is so much room and an indoor watching area up there, there are probably a crap load of people inside. It makes sense.

    Most of the renovations have given more to the club level. That’s my guess on why they look empty.

  • This needed to happen. Going into this season the average Chiefs ticket price was the 11th most expensive ticket out of all major sports in the US (NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL). And that was following multiple losing seasons.

    The NFL teams ahead of them in acending order: Chargers, Colts, Ravens, Jets, Bears, Giants, Patriots and Cowboys.

  • Ascending order that is.
