Steelers, Cowboys Will Cost You Double

Single game tickets for Chiefs home games will go on sale on Friday, July 31st.

And if you want to see Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys and Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium, it’s going to cost you double.

Following the lead of many other professional and college teams, the Chiefs are requiring anyone who wants to buy seats for the Cowboys and Steelers to buy seats for one of the team’s pre-season games.

Want to see Dallas on October 11? Then you’ll have to buy the same number of seats to see the Houston Texans on August 15.

Fans that want to see the defending Super Bowl champion Steelers on November 22, will have to buy tickets to see the Seattle Seahawks on August 29.

No such requirements for the other six home games against Denver, San Diego, Oakland, Cleveland, Buffalo and the New York Giants.

Jackson County, Missouri taxpayers will have the first opportunity to purchase single game tickets, on Wednesday, July 29th and Thursday, July 30th. Tickets may be purchased at the temporary Arrowhead Stadium ticket office in Parking Lot D from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. each day or at participating Kansas City Ticketmaster outlets. No phone orders will be accepted for the Jackson County sale. Taxpayers must have one form of identification which includes a photo of the person purchasing the tickets and a personal 2008 Jackson County property tax receipt. Spouses residing at the same address will be allowed to purchase tickets, even if the receipt is in a spouse’s name.

Once again, a lottery system will be employed at the Chiefs ticket office and the Ticketmaster outlets. Lottery tickets will be distributed beginning at 9:00 AM. Ticketmaster outlets taking part in the Jackson County sale can be found at this link.

Everybody else can buy tickets starting at 10 a.m. on July 31st. Tickets may be purchased online at, by phone (800-745-3000), in person at any Ticketmaster Outlet or at the temporary Arrowhead Stadium Ticket Office.

There is no limit to the number of tickets that may be purchased for any games. Buyers may use cash or credit card. No checks will be accepted.  
A priority pre-sale for Chiefs season ticket holders will begin on Thursday, July 30th at 10:00 AM. The Chiefs will notify season ticket holders with instructions on how to participate.

    Fook that. I’ll pass.

    Nothing like biting the hand that feeds you.

    And just think how much it’s going to cost Chief$ fans in the future when (if ever) the team starts winning?

    As Mr. Spock opined ‘Star Trek’: “you may find that ‘having’ is not as much as ‘wanting.’

    :cool: daddy-o

    Do you ever have anything that isn’t negative to add to the conversation?

    Be a real fan and buy season tickets.

  • July 20, 2009  - anonymous says:


    Atta Boy Juniorrrrrrr! I think he should raise parking prices to Fifty bucks for those two games also!! LMFAO!!

    Go Jr! Go!

    Hows the soccer business?

    Do you suppose there is any discount if one was to take this raping, with out lube?

  • July 20, 2009  - anonymous says:

    Maybe we can get an ordinance passed that adds a 30% surcharge on all hotel and restaurant sales during the weekend of those two games that would help Jr out a little more.


    This is too funny!

  • July 20, 2009  - Scott says:


    You must not come here very often…or read very many of my posts. I’m one of the most positive people here. By far.

    I just think it’s complete BS to force people to buy a ticket for a game they probably have no interest in (pre-season)…in order to get a ticket they DO want.

    As far as season tickets go? I’d LOVE to have season tickets! Are you buying? Ha! ‘Cause I’m just a poor working stiff with a family to feed. No way can I afford season tickets. No way.

    ….”and for an extra $10, you can purchase a breathing license to soak in all the benefits of this rarified atmosphere. Those without their BLs will be required to bring their own oxygen tanks”……

    Tongue in cheek on the above for anyone thinking otherwise, but where does the gouging stop?

  • July 20, 2009  - anonymous says:

    OK, I have another solution to help Jr pay for his soccer teams and at least one new stadium for said soccer teams (Pizza Hut Park)

    All possible routes to and from Arrowhead will become toll roads during those two weekends, ALL proceeds go to the Hunt family.

    I feel your pain as a fellow working stiff. My wife gets me tix every year as part of my Christmas gift. I wouldn’t feel right getting them otherwise.

    I actually DO read often…and maybe I’m mistaking sarcasm for negativity, but that’s just the way you come off to me.

    No worries, my opinion isn’t worth a whole lot anyways. :)

  • July 20, 2009  - anonymous says:

    LMAO Rip!

    Now your thinkin!

    Anyone else have any other creative ways to help ol’ Jr out?

    He really needs the money.

  • July 20, 2009  - Scott says:

    Damn, Josh…your wife is COOL!!!

    I usually only make it to a couple of games each year.

    And I’ll try to watch myself. I certainly don’t intend to come off as being negative all the time. I appreciate the observation.

  • July 20, 2009  - anonymous says:

    We’ll let ol’ Jr do the math on these suggestions, if that’s not enough to satisfy his financial needs, there always airport and car rental fees, additional gasoline taxes etc. etc.

    Hell, the potential for monetary gain is only limited by the number of SUCKERS, er, as Peterson put it “real fans” there are, and the supply of those seems limitless!!

  • July 20, 2009  - Josh says:

    No worries, Scott.

    I think I tend to err on the “eternal optimist” side, which can be just as bad. :)

    And yeah, wifey’s not so bad. hehe

    Well fellas, I think it’s safe to say that the Author of this blog is no longer employed by the Chiefs. I truly hope I’m wrong, I’ve been reading his stuff for so long, I can barely remember when he wasn’t in some way associated with the Chiefs. But I have serious doubts that the tone of the Authors post would be umm, so politically incorrect… nope, wrong word! More corporate friendly. Or less unfriendly.

    Would be prudent to the many of us that have enjoyed your work for many years, to go on record on this one Bob.

    Josh your an idiot. I don’t care if I’m being mean or not. Just cause you gotta bunch of money doesn’t make you a real fan, just an a$$clown. Screw this crap. You telling me they need the money? The NFL is about the only business that isn’t feeling the recession. Billion dollar owners and million dollar players, with billion dollar T.V. contracts. This is a bunch of $hit.

  • July 20, 2009  - Anonymous says:

    Greed by the owners & thuggish behavior by players is what will one day kill my interest in the NFL.

    It’s like they’re working at it.

    Clark sounds a lot like the former Illinois Gov…”I’ve got this thing and it’s f***ing golden, and, uh, uh, I’m just not giving it up for f***in’ nothing.”

  • July 20, 2009  - Mark says:

    Dumb, just dumb policy by the Chiefs. A teamthat was buried by the incompetance of Herm Edwards can’t afford to treat their fans that way.
    As for Bob at the Mothership. Bob hasn’t written an article there since June 1st. None of the regulars, Rand, Bob, or “Dawes” have written anthing new in almost 2 months. I suspect the employment roster over there may see some additions and/or subtractions.

  • July 20, 2009  - MadJew says:

    There is a silver lining to this; hopefully it will keep Arrowhead from being over run by Cowboy and Steeler fans, like they always do. I think it’s funny to make them pay for a game they have no interest in, whatsoever, but feel sorry for the Chiefs fans.

  • July 20, 2009  - Rin Tin Tin says:

    The incompetence of :shock: & :roll: has taken over at One Arrowhead; we miss you Herm Edwards…

    RTT – “The incompetence of :shock: & :roll: has taken over at One Arrowhead; we miss you Herm Edwards…”

    What makes you think Herm would have any say over ticket policy, if that’s what you are referring to??? He would have none.

    My mistake, sorry. You were right Rin.

    Will the color yellow (terrible towelers) overshadow the color red…at Arrowhead??

  • July 21, 2009  - CK says:

    Well, we’ve been forced to pay for pre-season games for 30 years and almost never make the 207 mile trip attend exhibition. It’s what every NFL owner has done forever.
    I see this move as a way to make Steeler/Cowboy fans pay for per-season games. If you don’t want to pay for both, just wait until Sept. 1 or check out Stub-Hub.
    I have a feeling most of you that are complaining don’t have season tickets.

    hey dumbasses quit the hijacking.

    I didn’t post this
