The Kansas City Chiefs are somewhat heading back to the norm as they prepare for the upcoming season with training camp. Last season was the first in a while that the camp was not held in St. Joseph on the Missouri Western State University campus. Instead, the camp was held back at home.
Not only that but fans will be allowed back at training camp as well. This is huge for the Chiefs; after a year of uncertainty in 2020, they will now get an entire offseason once again.
Last year, the then defending champs could revisit the super bowl even in a crazy season where there was little to no offseason or preparation. I want to say imagine what they can do now, but there are other teams with the same excuse.
So why is the return to Missouri Western State University so crucial for the Chiefs? Well, for a few reasons, but mainly for the chemistry. As head coach Andy Reid has said before, the players and staff look forward to training camp. There is something different about staying in the dorms for four weeks. And with no players holding out and no real distractions this year, they can get after it even more.
For the fans, they will be allowed to attend every practice unless noted otherwise. Training camp will be held from July 28th to August 18th with varying dates and times. For more information on the schedule, click here for the full schedule and extra details.
Chiefs fans should take advantage of this time and attend practices as much as possible, as it will only help the Kingdom even more. And think of this fans, after this training camp, it’s onto real football against the Browns in week one.
