KANSAS CITY, Mo. – First things first, the Kansas City Chiefs have business to attend to on Feb. 12 in Arizona.
The Chiefs will face the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
Should the Chiefs prevail, city leaders are already outlining plans for how to hold the city’s second Chiefs championship celebration in the last five years.
Part of this planning will come during Wednesday’s Transportation, Infrastructure and Operations Committee meeting of the Kansas City, Missouri city council.
Among the items on the agenda is consideration of an ordinance that would allocate $750,000 from the city’s Neighborhood Tourism Development Fund for “the 2023 Chiefs postseason championship celebration.”
The funding would be through a contract with the Greater Kansas City Sports Commission.
With the Super Bowl less than two weeks away, sponsors of the ordinance, Mayor Quinton Lucas and Council Member Kevin O’Neill, have called for the article to have “an accelerated effective date.”
It wasn’t until the clock struck 00:00 in the Chiefs Super Bowl LIV victory that details of that year’s championship celebration were officially released.
Finally, the team held a parade that began in the River Market neighborhood that traveled south along Grand Boulevard before ending at Kansas City’s Union Station. Hundreds of thousands of Chiefs fans gathered on the hill south of Union Station for a celebratory event.
