Single-game tickets for all 2013 Kansas City Chiefs home games went on sale to the public July 12.
Talking with the hard-working crew in ticket sales, the phones haven’t stopped ringing, with training camp just two weeks away. The team’s first preseason home game falls on a Friday night, August 16th, against the San Francisco 49ers.
The Chiefs improved during the very busy offseason, thanks to the club’s chairman and CEO Clark Hunt, who spearheaded the changes made within the franchise after the 2012 campaign. The confident decisions made by Hunt exhibited the competitive spirit of his late father, Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt, creating an excitement that continues to buzz, surrounding the team.
So, as the season nears, let’s take a look back at what the team has been doing to prepare for what could be an unforgettable 2013.
The biggest man at Twin Oaks Country Club Friday afternoon is maybe the biggest name to come to Springfield for the Lorenzo Williams and Friends Celebrity Weekend.
Former Kansas City Chiefs all-pro defensive end Neil Smith said he was happy to put aside his roots as a Nebraska Cornhusker to help Williams, a former Missouri Tiger, raise money for local charities.
“I still live in Missouri. I’m a Missouri guy at heart,” Smith said before teeing off in Friday’s pro-am golf tournament that featured 33 teams and nearly 200 golfers. “I’m expecting the best today. I’m looking forward to it. We’ll have a great time. It’s good to play with a pro because he’ll correct you if you’re doing something wrong.”
Chiefs fans – let’s get ready to rrrrruuumble!
The Chiefs Rumble will hold two auditions this year at Arrowhead Stadium in the hopes of finding talented musicians to add to our already impressive group of percussionists.
“The Rumble is a professional drum line whose primary function is to entertain and excite Chiefs fans on game days,” Matt Arnet, Director of the Rumble explained. “The Rumble spends the hours leading up to kick-off patrolling the parking lot at Arrowhead performing for fans and energizing the crowds as they enter the stadium.”
The Rumble consists of 27 members divided into three groups of nine to parade through the parking lots before the game. Each group has seven drummers and two cymbals.
