Would the Kansas Town Chiefs be greater off participating in a football game in St. Louis as opposed to participating in at an intercontinental location?
A Kansas Town, Missouri Town Councilman thinks so.
Town Councilman and mayoral prospect Quinton Lucas instructed St. Louis tv station KMOV that if it will come down to dropping a dwelling game, he thinks the Chiefs would be greater off trying to build a regional footprint somewhat than an intercontinental subsequent.
“I never believe it’s just a pie in the sky matter,” Lucas instructed a St. Louis reporter.
The Chiefs shed a dwelling game to perform towards the Detroit Lions in London in 2015.
The Chiefs had been scheduled to perform an absent game in Mexico Town in 2018 only to have that game moved to Los Angeles thanks to lousy subject problems. They’re scheduled once again for an absent game in Mexico Town in 2019.
Lucas thinks the group would be greater off participating in throughout the condition than throughout the environment.
“My total point of view was, if the NFL is inquiring a large amount of groups to give up dwelling game titles – the Chiefs did one a couple of a long time back, we had been participating in the Lions, we played them in London – it was a 9 a.m. kickoff here in Kansas Town. Nobody in the US obtained something out of it,” he explained. “I believe it’s in all probability more enjoyable, more exciting, and more income for us at least in the brief term in Kansas Town to get people today in St. Louis and other locations thrilled.”
Lucas went on to say he understands opportunity pushback to the idea, specifically considering the volume of income game titles at Arrowhead draw. He however hopes, if it will come down to dropping a dwelling game at Arrowhead, that officers would contemplate regional brand name-making more than intercontinental game titles.
“If the NFL asks us to do an intercontinental game, I would hope that our ownership and many others contemplate the different of performing something that is a large amount nearer to us,” Lucas explained.
