Parking and Traffic

Parking lots for Sunday's game open at 7:30 a.m. All parking passes must be purchased in advance at www.chiefs.com/stadium/parking/ as payments will not be accepted at the parking tollgates.

Tickets and parking passes are mobile only and fans should save to their mobile wallet for easy access. Fans are encouraged to plan ahead and arrive early. Presently, southbound I-435 at Gregory Blvd. and Oldham Parkway is reduced to two lanes. This lane reduction could cause delays in the area, especially during the postgame commute from GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.

Fans who are unable to attend Sunday's game can tune into WDAF-FM (106.5 The Wolf), the Home of the Chiefs Radio Network, as "Voice of the Chiefs" Mitch Holthus, former Chiefs WR Danan Hughes and sideline reporter Josh Klingler call the action.

Returning for a seventh season, the Kansas City Chiefs will offer the non-denominational pregame Faith and Family Chapel service for fans at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium who may miss their normal Sunday worship opportunities due to Chiefs games. Presented by Life Church, the service is held in the east portion of the Pavilion on the south side of the stadium every week there is a noon home game.

The Ford Tailgate District will open at 8 a.m. on Sunday.

GEHA Deck

The Chiefs introduced the GEHA Deck in 2019 as the home for two gameday traditions – the Drum Honoree and the Tony DiPardo Spirit Leader. Actor and comedian Eric Stonestreet will serve as this week's Drum Honoree while Erick Nicholas, HDF Family College Prep Program and HDF Scholar, will be the game's Tony DiPardo Spirit Leader.

Lamar Hunt Legacy Seat

To help celebrate the franchise's 60th season in 2019, the Kansas City Chiefs introduced the Lamar Hunt Legacy seat at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. For each home game, the club selected one honoree who embodied the spirit of Lamar Hunt and represents the four pillars of the Chiefs Mission: Win with Character, Unite our Community, Inspire our Fans and Honor Tradition. After being forced to skip the recognition due to reduced capacity in 2020, the club is now using the Lamar Hunt Legacy Seat to specifically honor a Chiefs Season Ticket Member at each home game. The two gold seats are located in Section 121 of the lower bowl, symbolically positioned under Lamar Hunt's name in the team's Ring of Honor.

This week's Lamar Hunt Legacy Seat honoree is Season Ticket Member Steve Lopez. Lopez recently moved from California to Kansas City for the Chiefs and is now a second-year Season Ticket Member.
