Travis Kelce says he loves away games and hopes to find ways to increase fan engagement when the Chiefs travel to Germany.
The official regular season schedule is now out for the 2023 campaign, and the Kansas City Chiefs face a number of significant opponents and special games. From the season-opening contest against the Detroit Lions to their first exhibition in Germany to a repeat of Super Bowl LVII, the slate, especially at home, is absolutely stacked.
On the latest episode of the New Heights podcast, brothers Travis Kelce and Jason Kelce took the time to break down the schedules of their respective teams, which means listeners got to hear what Travis thought of the Chiefs’ schedule as it was revealed. The pair didn’t highlight every game, but they did hit several games of note.
Specifically, Travis had a lot of energy around the idea of heading to Frankfurt at midseason to host the Miami Dolphins saying, “That’s gonna be fun!” Kelce then went on to describe why he loves being away from Arrowhead at times.
“Anything that changes the scene,” said Kelce. “I like playing in away stadiums just because I like getting out of Kansas City because, during the season, you just don’t get the free time to see another city, another arena outside of game day. I like away games and this one is gonna be a blast.”
Specifically, when asked about Tyreek Hill’s failed homecoming at Arrowhead and any engagement there, Kelce refused to talk about it. However, he was busy trying to think up ways to get the fans involved in Germany given their love of beer.
“I think I might host a chug-off,” he said. “Yeah, I think that’d be sweet, get the fan engagement going out there.” Then again, when asked by his brother if he planned on taking part, Travis only had this to say. “I don’t think I should drink before the game, but we’ll see.”
