Vice President of Event Operations


Nick Capo was promoted to Vice President of Event Operations on September 9, 2021 and enters his sixth season with the club in 2023 after originally joining the Chiefs in 2018 as the Director of Event Operations.

Reporting to the Executive Vice President of Arrowhead Operations and Events, Capo plans, directs and manages the day-to-day operations for all events at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, including football games, concerts and other special events. His team is responsible for the advance alignment and dissemination of all game and event-day details across the operation of the stadium.

In addition, Capo has provided operational support for key internal initiatives and special projects, including the team's three Super Bowl appearances following the 2019, 2020 and 2022 seasons. Capo also served on the internal committee that launched Chiefs Fit, the team's two state-of-the-art fitness, health and wellness centers. He also oversees a staff of full-time managers in event services and event operations who support the sourcing, hiring and training of more than 500 seasonal union and non-union event staff members.

Prior to joining the Chiefs, Capo spent four years as the Senior Director of Ballpark Operations and Events for the San Diego Padres and Petco Park (2014-17). While in San Diego, he oversaw multiple departments, including security, event operations, guest services, groundskeeping, special events and ticket operations, and supported an event calendar that featured more than 150 baseball games and other special events. He served as the primary lead for operations and logistical planning for the 2016 Major League Baseball All-Star Game at Petco Park and was the club's primary contact with the City of San Diego related to the venue's event schedule.

Before making the jump to baseball, he spent 10 years (2005-14) in various managerial and director-level roles with both the Miami Dolphins and what is now Hard Rock Stadium. While in Miami, Capo served as the Executive Director of the Dolphins Cycling Challenge (2011-14), the Miami Dolphins' premier fundraising event. He also served as Senior Director of Stadium Operations and Events (2010-12), Senior Manager of Stadium Operations (2008-10) and Manager of Event Operations (2005-07), handling many facets of operations for the football team and stadium, including event set-up and conversion, as well as staffing. He also completed two separate year-long internships with the Dolphins and Pro Player Stadium in 1999 and 2002.

Over the course of his professional career Capo has worked a number of notable events, including 10 Super Bowls, the MLB All-Star Game, WrestleMania and multiple major stadium concert tours.
