The Kansas City Chiefs will not get to play in their renovated stadium until August but fans can see it before then when Manchester United takes on the Kansas City Wizards at the New Arrowhead on July 25th. Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 10am.
Tickets range from $30 – $200, and can be purchased via ticketmaster.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000, at any participating Ticketmaster outlet or through the Chiefs ticket office. Tickets are already on sale to Chiefs and Wizards season ticket holders.
The July 25th match between Manchester United and the Wizards will serve as a precursor to the inaugural NFL game at the New Arrowhead on August 27th as the Chiefs host the Philadelphia Eagles. Kansas City also has a home preseason date vs. the Green Bay Packers on September 2nd. The Chiefs will officially celebrate the grand opening of the New Arrowhead with a national primetime TV audience at 9:15 PM (Central) on September 13th as Kansas City hosts San Diego on ESPN’s Monday Night Football.
In order for the New Arrowhead to keep getting these type of big time non-NFL events, the place will need to be packed. And even if you’re like me and know nothing about soccer, you need to appreciate the money these events will bring to the Kansas City area.
The ticket prices get a little hairy on the high end, but I think $30 bucks is a fair price to pay to get an early look at all the changes to Arrowhead.
