This decision not only affects the Chiefs’ plans but also jeopardizes the future of the Royals, who were eyeing a move from Kauffman Stadium to a new venue.Originally, the Chiefs had earmarked $300 million of private funding towards the stadium’s refurbishment, with the total cost estimated at around $800 million. However, without the necessary public support, this ambitious project now seems unattainable.

Enter Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson, who has thrown his city’s hat into the ring as a potential destination for the Chiefs. This proposal holds historical significance, as the franchise was initially founded as the Dallas Texans by Lamar Hunt in 1959, before relocating to Kansas City four years later and assuming the moniker of the Chiefs.
