Future of Chiefs in Jeopardy After Stadium Renovation Vote Loss


Apr 3, 2024

Jackson County voters recently voted against a sales tax proposal to fund the renovation of Arrowhead Stadium for the Chiefs and the construction of a new stadium for the Royals. The measure failed with 78,352 votes against and 56,606 votes in favor. Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas responded to the outcome by stating that he looks forward to collaborating with the Chiefs and the Royals to find a solution that will benefit the teams and the city for years to come.

In light of the failed measure, Chiefs team president Mark Donovan expressed disappointment and uncertainty about the future of the team. Donovan had previously warned that the Chiefs could potentially leave if the sales tax proposal did not pass. However, despite the threats, Jackson County voters stood by their decision.

Donovan acknowledged the decision of the voters and stated that the team had put forth what they believed to be the best offer for Jackson County. He emphasized the importance of the longstanding partnership between the teams and the county, expressing a commitment to finding a way forward that is in the best interest of the fans and the organization. The rejection of the sales tax proposal has raised questions about the future of the Chiefs and their relationship with the city of Kansas City.
