The Kansas City Chiefs are monitoring efforts from the Kansas City Royals to build a downtown stadium.

The two teams have had companion stadiums in the same complex for nearly 50 years.

“Obviously, we’ve been connected to the Royals for almost 50 years now here at the [Truman] Sports Complex, so their decision on their long-term future will have an impact on us,” Hunt said, per “We’re going to watch as they go through the process and at some point in the next year or so start thinking about what’s next for the Chiefs from a stadium standpoint.”

The team’s lease at Arrowhead Stadium expires in nine years. Another renovation to the venue is a possibility, according to Hunt.

If the Royals vacate their stadium, the Chiefs could conceivably build a new stadium on that site while still playing at Arrowhead.
