Jeremy Slavens

Vice President of Arrowhead Events


Jeremy Slavens enters his 21st season with the Chiefs in 2023 and his third as the club's Vice President of Arrowhead Events after being promoted to the newly created position on September 8, 2021. He previously served seven seasons (2014-20) as the team's Director of Events.

Reporting to the Executive Vice President of Arrowhead Operations and Events, Slavens is responsible for all aspects of Arrowhead Events, the team's non-football revenue-generating events business that works to make GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium a year-round entertainment destination that serves the entire Midwest region. This includes the development and fostering of local and national relationships with promoters of all types across the sports and entertainment industry.

These efforts account for many of the organization's largest events, including major concert tours, motorsports, international soccer matches, college football games, stadium festivals, 5K runs and corporate events. In addition, Slavens directs the franchise's training camp operations at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri, serving as the key liaison between the team's football operations and the college, as well as overseeing a staff responsible for the daily operation of the fan-facing elements of training camp.

Slavens also oversees the corporate event sales staff, the corporate event operations staff and the stadium tour staff, with the group typically selling and operating more than 300 events at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium annually.

Additionally, he served on the bid committee that secured the 2023 NFL Draft for Kansas City and was a member of KC2026, Kansas City's Executive Committee that was successfully awarded host city status for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, with matches slated for GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.

He originally joined the Chiefs in 2000 as a sponsorship intern and went on to spend three years (2001-03) as a Sponsorship Coordinator with the Kansas City Wizards (now Sporting KC), which was under Hunt family ownership at the time. In 2004, Slavens was hired by the Chiefs as a Sponsorship Coordinator and went on to become the club's Marketing Manager (2006-09) and eventually the Manager of Special Events and Marketing (2009-10). During that time he worked on integrated marketing and media plans for sales and special events, as well as performing customer and market research.

In 2011, he was named Director of Marketing and Special Events where he spent three full seasons focusing on marketing campaigns that encompassed a wide range of team initiatives and fan-facing events before being named Director of Events (2014-2020), where his sole focus became attracting and creating events to generate a sustained annual revenue source for the club.

Slavens graduated with a bachelor's degree in business administration from Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, and is a 2018 graduate of the Venue Management School at the International Association of Venue Managers.
