What’s Going on at Arrowhead?
Salute to Service Game presented by USAA: The Chiefs have a long-standing tradition of supporting the men and women of our Armed Forces. This Sunday, the Chiefs will host their annual Salute to Service game at Arrowhead. Each year, the NFL and NFL Players Association come together in honor of Veterans Day to celebrate and recognize members of the military. Through Salute to Service, the league supports military appreciation non-profit partners including the USO, the Pat Tillman Foundation, TAPS, the Bob Woodruff Foundation and the Wounded Warrior Project. With the NFL, these efforts allow the Chiefs organization to salute our servicemen and women and share our appreciation for all the sacrifices that they and their families make on our behalf.
Before kickoff on Sunday, the Black Daggers, the official U.S. Army Special Ops Command Parachute Team, will jump into Arrowhead, weather permitting. Sunday’s National Anthem will be performed by retired Army Staff Sgt. Ron Gutierrez and the flag will be presented by the Ft. Leonard Wood Army – Baron Hill Color Guard. In addition, Missouri Governor Mike Parson, a six-year U.S. Army veteran, will join 150 service members and the color guard holding the American flag on the field. At the conclusion of the National Anthem, there will be a flyover by the 303rd Fighter Squadron A-10 Warthogs out of Whiteman Air Force Base, weather permitting.
The Chiefs Drum Ceremony will be performed by Col. Donald Ballard, a retired Navy and Army National Guard Medal of Honor recipient. Throughout the course of the game, all five branches of the military will be honored. USAA, the Official Salute to Service Partner of the Chiefs, will present an in-game Salute to Service moment. During warmups, players will wear commemorative patches in honor of the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day and the National WWI Museum and Memorial. Players, coaches and officials will wear other apparel supporting Salute to Service throughout the game. In addition, on-field and in-stadium branding will be visible around Arrowhead. At halftime, there will be a performance by the Kansas Army National Guard 35th Infantry Division Band.
At 11 a.m. on Sunday, there will be ringing bells. The bells also rang 100 years ago on Nov. 11, signifying the end of World War I. The armistice was declared on the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour in 1918.
Toys for Tots Collection: For more than five decades, the Kansas City Chiefs and local members of the Marine Corps have hosted an annual Toys for Tots collection at Arrowhead Stadium. That tradition continues on Sunday when the team hosts the Arizona Cardinals. Chiefs’ fans are encouraged to donate new and unwrapped toys for boys and girls up to the age of 15 as they enter the Arrowhead gates. The Marines will also be accepting cash and check (made out to “Toys for Tots”) donations at these stadium collection points if fans would prefer to help support a local child in need this holiday season.
