[KC Chiefs.com] Returns from voters of Jackson County (MO) yesterday signaled victory for a proposition that renovates the stadiums at the Truman Sports Complex thereby guaranteeing the Kansas City Chiefs and Kansas City Royals will remain in Kansas City for the next 25 years. A second proposition that called for the addition of Rolling Roof to Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Chiefs, was defeated.
“This is a great celebration,” added Kansas City mayor Kay Barnes. “Not only have the Royals and Chiefs been part of our home, they’re staying home. I’m confident that one way or another we’re going to have a Rolling Roof and we’re going to have a great future in Kansas City.”
No one was more pleased than Chiefs founder, Lamar Hunt, who brought the Chiefs to Kansas City from Dallas back in 1963. “This means that Arrowhead is going to remain home of the Chiefs for the next quarter of a century. With the modernization the Chiefs will be competitive within the NFL and we are most appreciative of the citizens who supported the campaign and the leadership of the key people in the county.”
