The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Washington Redskins on ESPN's Monday Night Football on Monday, October 2. Fans can find important information and reminders about Monday's game below.
WEEKNIGHT GAME WILL BRING INCREASED TRAFFIC
Fans should expect to see heavy delays due to rush hour traffic on Interstates 435 and 70, as well as streets around the Truman Sports Complex due to the start time of Monday's game. This traffic is unavoidable, so fans are asked to plan in advance, leave as early as possible and avoid rush hour as much as they are able to. It is suggested that drivers who are not going to the game but normally travel past the Truman Sports Complex identify an alternate route to avoid creating additional rush hour back-ups. All fans should visit www.chiefs.com/parking to make their travel and parking gameplan.
Parking lot gates for Monday's game open at 2:30 p.m. Fans are encouraged to purchase their parking passes in advance to decrease the time spent at parking tollgates and help expedite the parking process for all gameday visitors. Parking passes can be purchased in advance for $35 at the Chiefs Ticket Office or online at www.chiefs.com/parking (with applicable Ticketmaster fees). Cash parking at the tollgate on gameday will be $60.
All Arrowhead Stadium gates will open at 5:30 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. kickoff. Gates for guests with tickets on the Scout Investments Club Level will open at 5 p.m.
KANSAS CITY SYMPHONY TO PERFORM NATIONAL ANTHEM
The Kansas City Symphony, led by Music Director Michael Stern, is returning to lead Chiefs fans in "The Star-Spangled Banner" for Monday's game. The Symphony previously performed the national anthem at Arrowhead Stadium prior to the Chiefs home opener in 2015 and has also had smaller ensembles perform the national anthem in past years.
HUNT FAMILY FOUNDATION 50/50 RAFFLE AND PRIMETIME SPECIAL
Monday's Hunt Family Foundation 50/50 Raffle will benefit GENYOUth. In partnership with the NFL, Fuel Up to Play 60 and the National Dairy Council, GENYOUth specializes in a range of national initiatives to create a healthy, successful future for students, schools and communities nationwide and empowers youth as change-agents in their local communities. The Chiefs will also offer the "Primetime Special" for fans purchasing raffle tickets for Monday's game.
