Lightbulb Kansas City Chiefs Playing All Road Games?

Labor Dispute Could Put Chiefs Entire Season On The Road


Kevin Kietzman with 810 Sports Radio in Kansas City reports the Chiefs home season might be in jeopardy because of a labor strike at Truman Sports Complex.

According to Kietzman, there are five days left in a labor contract between the builder and the Ironworkers Local Number 10 Union. When the contract expires at midnight on March 30, Kietzman said the iron workers and carpenters will go on strike. If that strike lasts 30 to 60 days long, the Chiefs will have to play their entire season on the road.

Kietzman reported that opening day for the Royals would not be affected. The Chiefs would have to play every scheduled home game at the opposing team's stadium

I guess so, that's the only way a labor dispute of ironworkers and carpenters would affect the stadium's use.

That has to really suck if you're a season ticket holder.

I would assume the Chiefs would have to refund every one of them if they couldn't play at home. I know if I paid at least a grand and couldn't go to a single game because of this, I would want a refund.

That means an extra home game for the steelers. Anyway that would be extremely harsh on a team coming off a 2-14 record
