KANSAS CITY, Mo. — 2:40 p.m. | The Kansas City Chiefs said it's good to be back in St. Joseph, Missouri, for training camp.
The veteran Chiefs players arrived in St. Joseph on Monday. Last year, training camp stayed at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium due to COVID-19, but the team is back and starts practicing tomorrow.
Practice is open to season ticket holders on Wednesday, and Thursday's practice will be open to the general public with tickets reserved in advance.
Mahomes is also a part owner of the Kansas City Royals, and his fiancee, Brittany Matthews, is a co-owner of the Kansas City NWSL, the professional women's soccer team in Kansas City. KSHB 41 News reporter Aaron Ladd tweeted what Mahomes said in a news release from Sporting KC:
