After $400M Offer, Relief for Patrick Mahomes’ Chiefs as Missourians Vote for SB Champs & Royals to Stay in the ‘Show-Me’ State

Good news for Kansas City sports fans! A recent Emerson College Polling/The Hill survey shows a majority of Missourians voted in favor of keeping both the Kansas City Chiefs and Kansas City Royals in the state. Patrick Mahomes‘ Chiefs is a team that more than two-thirds of Missourians (62.9%) want to keep. Likewise, 58.3% of people find Royals’ presence to be somewhat important, with 38.2% of Missourians being in absolute favor of keeping the baseball team in the Show-Me state.In April 2024, Jackson County voters rejected a sales tax increase to fund Arrowhead stadium improvements, leaving the Chiefs’ and Royals’ future in Missouri uncertain. Kansas lawmakers took advantage, passing a 70% stadium project funding plan. This puts Kansas in a good position to attract teams from across the state. Even Missouri Governor Mike Parson is optimistic. Parson’s administration is actively developing a competitive bid to keep both teams in the Show-Me state.
