KANSAS CITY, Mo. — 3:20 p.m. | Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt discussed the future of GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium after training camp earlier today.

“That process is on-going,” Hunt told reporters. “We’re going to evaluate all options; We’ve got to figure out what’s best for the franchise and what’s best for the fan base. But it starts with evaluating Arrowhead and that’s where we’re at right now.”
