Chiefs' Decision On Future Training Camp Site Will Come By Year's End
Chiefs Chair & CEO Clark Hunt on Saturday said that the club "will decide whether to continue training camp at Missouri Western State University by the end of the calendar year," according to Randy Covitz of the K.C. STAR. The Chiefs "are in the final year of their initial five-year agreement with the school and have one-year options for the next five years." Hunt: "I wouldn't say at this point we're leaning any way. ... A lot of teams have made that decision to take training camp back to their permanent facilities. It’s not something we’ve discussed. If we did make the decision to move, we would look at all of our options. The one thing we don’t have at the Arrowhead training complex is a hotel or dorm rooms. I think that’s a big advantage of the university set-up." Meanwhile, Hunt "was impressed with the turnout of 6,200 fans who attended Saturday’s Family Fun Day." He said, "That’s the advantage of having camp close to Kansas City is our fans can get up here" (K.C. STAR, 7/27).
