With a playoff berth and the AFC West nearly in hand, beginning next week, the Kansas City Chiefs will start selling tickets to potential home games during the 2020 NFL playoffs.
All season long, the Chiefs have operated at a capacity reduced to 22% of the typical capacity at Arrowhead Stadium. With COVID-19 cases on the rise, the franchise will continue these capacity restrictions throughout the playoffs.
That means there will only be a limited number of tickets available for home playoff games. Chiefs team president Mark Donovan encouraged fans to attend despite the reduced capacity.
“Even with a reduced capacity, our fans have made a noticeable difference for our team. We really appreciate their commitment throughout the season,” Donovan said. “We have a lot of plans to make this a memorable postseason while supporting our ultimate goal to ‘Run It Back.’”
Here’s how everything with the upcoming playoff ticket sale will work:
- Season ticket holders will have first dibs to purchase tickets beginning on Monday, Dec. 7. They’ll be able to purchase what the Chiefs are calling a “Playoff Pack” which will include tickets for all three potential Chiefs home games for the playoffs. The will be a pay-as-we-play payment option, where season ticket holders won’t be charged until games are confirmed.
- Tickets will be sold to season ticket holders in order of tenure, using their specific password-protected accounts. Keep an eye on your email associated with your account if you’re a season ticket holder.
- After presale for season ticket members, all remaining tickets will be released as single-game tickets on Friday, Dec. 11. It’ll first be released to Jackson County residents at 8 a.m. CT and then the general public beginning at Noon CT.
- Tickets continue to be sold in seated groups of pods. You can purchase up to six seats in a pod.
All policies related to COVID-19 will still be in effect and enforced during the playoffs. If you need a refresher on those policies, please visit www.chiefs.com/stadium/covid for more details.
