KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The NFL is waiting to see what happens with Hurricane Ian to determine if Sunday night’s Chiefs-Buccaneers’ game will be relocated.

While fans still don’t know where the game will kickoff, we do know where it will be played if the NFL moves the game from Tampa due to Hurricane Ian.

FOX4 confirmed with the NFL if the game needs to be moved, it will be played in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The stadium is the home of the Minnesota Vikings, but the team is playing the New Orleans Saints in London Sunday morning.

The NFL said it could make the decision to move the game as late as Friday and still have the stadium, and teams, ready to play in Minnesota Sunday night.

Jeff Miller, NFL Executive Vice President of Communication, Public Affairs, and Policy, discussed the situation during a conference call with members of the media Wednesday.

“Let me start by addressing Hurricane Ian. We are all watching the coverage of this massive storm and share our concerns for everyone in Florida who is or will be impacted. Our first priority as it relates to the game this weekend is to ensure that we do nothing that negatively impacts public safety efforts in the affected areas.

Let’s talk about where we are with the game. As of now, there is no change to the status of the game in Tampa on Sunday night. We are closely monitoring the situation and in discussion with both clubs, the stadium, local and state authorities and various weather bureaus regularly.

It’s standard procedure for us to have contingency plans in place and to identify other NFL venues that could possibly host a game in any given week if needed. In this case, should the Hurricane necessitate a venue change, the game would be played Sunday night in Minneapolis at US Bank Stadium. We have been in close contact with the Vikings and appreciate their cooperation.

Let me reiterate that as of now there is no change to the status of the game; this is only as a contingency.”
