KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs will play their final preseason game of the year Thursday evening against the Green Bay Packers.
The organization released information that every fan should know before heading to GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.
Parking and Traffic
Arrowhead Parking lots open at 2:30 p.m.
All parking passes must be purchased online because payment is not accepted at the parking lot toll gates. Fans are also asked to have access to their mobile tickets and parking pass before arriving at the stadium to help with crowds.
Kansas City police also warn fans that traffic to the stadium is expected to be heavier than normal.
Ford Tailgate District
The Ford Tailgate District, located in Lot M on the north side of the stadium, opens at 3 p.m. Thursday.
It is free for fans and drink specials are offered. There are also food trucks, games and live entertainment leading up to kickoff.
Safety and Security
The NFL’s clear bag policy is in place for all Chiefs games at Arrowhead Stadium.
When fans reach the gates, they can keep all items in their pockets or clear bags as they pass through the screening systems.
The Chiefs say fans should walk their normal speed and there is no need to wait for the person in front to stop, unless otherwise directed.
