The Kansas City Chiefs have clinched the AFC West Championship with a 12-4 record and cemented the No. 2 seed in the AFC for the 2016 NFL Postseason. The club will have a first- round bye this weekend and will host an AFC Divisional home game at Arrowhead Stadium for the first time since 2003 at 12:05 p.m. on Sunday, January 15.
Tickets for the Divisional Game went on sale to the public on Friday, Dec. 23 and are currently available. Fans may purchase tickets online by visiting www.chiefs.com, by phone at (800) 745-3000 or at the Arrowhead Stadium Ticket Office located between the Founder's Plaza and the Hy-Vee Gate on the northwest side of the stadium. The Ticket Office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday.
Parking passes for the AFC Divisional Game are also on sale at www.chiefs.com. As has been the case all season long, fans are encouraged to purchase parking passes in advance to secure the lowest possible price and save time at the tollgate. Over the course of the 2016 season, almost 80% of cars that entered the Truman Sports Complex for a Chiefs game took advantage of prepaid parking. Prepaid parking passes for the Divisional Round purchased through the team are $35 (plus applicable fees) while parking at the tollgates on gameday will be $60 cash only. Fans should visit www.chiefs.com/parking to purchase their parking passes in advance and to plan their parking and tailgating experiences.
The Chiefs opponent will be determined by the outcome of the AFC Wild Card games played on Saturday, Jan. 7 and Sunday, Jan. 8.
This marks the third time in four years under Head Coach Andy Reid and General Manager John Dorsey that the Chiefs have advanced to the NFL Postseason. After a playoff berth in 2015, this marks the third time the club has reached the postseason in consecutive seasons (back-to-back seasons from 1968-69 and six-consecutive seasons from 1990-95). The AFC West Division Championship is the club's 10th division title (AFL West and AFC West) and the seventh division championship since the 1970 merger. The playoff berth marks the club's 19th season in the postseason.
