Thanks to a recently signed agreement, the Kansas City Chiefs will return to campus for the 10th year of training camp this summer. The Chiefs have held training camp on campus every year since 2010, when the club returned its training camp to Missouri for the first time in 20 years. At that time, the agreement with the state called for the Chiefs to hold their training camp at Missouri Western for a minimum of five years, and in Missouri for a minimum of 10 years.
“Missouri Western State University has continued to deliver outstanding facilities and services for our annual training camp since we moved back to the state of Missouri prior to the 2010 season,” Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. “The University and the city of St. Joseph provide our team the unique ability to go away for camp, while also offering resources and amenities for fans throughout Chiefs Kingdom to have access to their favorite team.”
