Chiefs player Juan Thornhill takes stance on Kansas-Missouri stadium debate

April 10, 2022

Chiefs fans in Missouri are scared at the thought of the team’s new stadium potentially being built in Kansas.

What will end up happening with KC down the road for home games? From the moment team president Mark Donovan left the door open for Kansas City to move its stadium across state lines, people have been voicing their displeasure.

However, it looks like Chiefs safety Juan Thornhill isn’t too worried about a potential move coming. Instead, he’s just going to be focused on balling out for the team like normal, no matter where he has to take the field.

The Chiefs have their lease at Arrowhead Stadium until 2031

It really feels up in the air what will happen with the Chiefs and their plans for a new stadium, but there’s certainly plenty of division here. For people in Kansas City, they don’t want a move to Kansas to happen at all.

There’s so much tradition in Kansas City and things were made even more special when the team won the Super Bowl three seasons ago. That campaign, Patrick Mahomes led the Chiefs to a close win over the San Francisco 49ers with the title on the line.

Since then, Kansas City got back to the Super Bowl and lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while they lost to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game last season. Despite trading Tyreek Hill to Miami, the Chiefs remain among the favorites to win it all this upcoming season.

With the lease at Arrowhead Stadium running through 2031, it doesn’t look like anything is imminent here. However, plans for a new stadium are clearly being thought about, and it could have the team leaving Missouri for Kansas in the future.
