KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) — The Super Bowl is a week and a half away, but city leaders are already gearing up for another celebration should the Chiefs win.
With a Super Bowl win, Kansas City would have its third championship save in less than a decade, joining the Royals in 2015 and the Chiefs in 2020.
The City’s Transportation, Infrastructure and Operations Committee is expected to allocate $750,000 for a championship parade celebration. City council members will outline their plans during the committee meeting Wednesday at 9 a.m
The agenda item for the potential allocation reads:
“Approval of $750,000.00 from the balance of the unallocated Neighborhood Tourism Development Fund; approving a contract up to the same amount with the City of Greater Kanas Sports Commission for the purpose of promoting neighborhoods and tourism in connection with a 2023 Chiefs postseason championship celebration; and acknowledging that this ordinance has an accelerated effective date.
If the point passes in committee, it will then go to the City Council for full approval. This could happen as soon as this Thursday afternoon.
For reference, the Royals championship parade in 2015 was budgeted at $350,000.
The Chiefs will face the Philadelphia Eagles February 12 in Glendale, Az in Super Bowl LVII.
