Chiefs nearing naming rights for Arrowhead Stadium’s field
The Kansas City Chiefs have been playing at Arrowhead Stadium for quite some time now. It looks like that could be changing though.
According to Terry Lefton of Sports Business Daily, the Chiefs are nearing a deal with a partner for naming rights of the stadium’s field.
That partner is Government Employees Heath Association (GEHA). The name for the stadium could be a little long-winded then; however, it would definitely bring in a lot of money for the team.
At the same time, there will likely be a lot of upset fans over this. Arrowhead Stadium is one of the most original and iconic names in football. It’s much more exciting that just having a stadium named after a sponsor.
And it has certainly helped with the incredible atmosphere surrounding the home games in Kansas City.
With that being said though, nothing is changing. Fans will still call the stadium whatever they please. This is simply something for the team and advertisements to spit out. It will bring in a lot of money for the Chiefs.
That is money they can use to better the roster, facilities, coaching staff or whatever they deem necessary on the road to win another Super Bowl.
It will definitely seem odd at first to hear “GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium,” or whatever they decide to go with. It is a smart business move, though.
And if we’re all being honest with ourselves, it’s kind of surprising it has taken them this long to find a new partner.
The big thing to remember here though, is this changes nothing other than a name. They are still the Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes is still the quarterback. No matter where he is playing, expect a lot of fireworks.
