Border War Intensifies: Kansas Makes Swift Move to Lure Chiefs and Royals

Jun 21, 2024

With remarkable swiftness, Kansas legislators are moving to make good on their bold plan to lure both the NFL’s Chiefs and MLB’s Royals across the border from Missouri to the Sunflower State.

Less than three months after a ballot box defeat in Jackson County, Mo., roughly two months after the beginning of legislative efforts, and just weeks after the formation of an advocacy group to recruit the Chiefs, bipartisan supermajorities in both chambers of the Kansas legislature approved a measure to issue bonds to build new stadiums for the two teams.
