Due to an unforeseen chain of inclement weather events expected to take place in Kansas City, Saturday's Fall Classic has been relocated to Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Mo., from Arrowhead Stadium.
After consulting with the National Football League office and a thorough review of the weather forecast, our grounds crew strongly suggested eliminating any activity on the field prior to the game on Sunday. Due to the potential combination of wet snow conditions followed by below freezing temperatures, it has been recommended that the field remain covered during the forecasted precipitation on Saturday.
"We would like to express our thanks to Mel Tjeerdsma, Loren Ferré and both universities for their understanding and working with us to find a solution to this unpredictable situation," Chiefs President Mark Donovan said.
All tickets for Saturday's scheduled game at Arrowhead will be refunded in full at the original point of purchase. Tickets will be available at the Northwest Missouri State University Ticket Office. Ticket information for Saturday's game will be available on both Northwest Missouri State and Washburn University's websites later this afternoon. Kickoff time has also been changed to 1 p.m.
Any ticket-related questions for the Chiefs can be directed to (816) 920-4237.
