Chiefs’ ticket sales rise

March 9, 2013


— The Kansas City Chiefs have a new coach, a new general manager — and plenty of new season-ticket holders.

New season sales are up 112 percent over this time last year, according to figures provided to The Associated Press on Friday. Season renewals are also up 5 percent over last year, and the Chiefs are on pace to have their best renewal since coming off their 2010 playoff season.

The Chiefs finished 2-14 last season.

Invoices were sent out Jan. 7, three days after coach Andy Reid was hired to replace Romeo Crennel, and five days before John Dorsey was hired to replace Scott Pioli as GM.

Already, they’ve made a series of moves, trading for quarterback Alex Smith, signing long-term deals with wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and punter Dustin Colquitt, and making left tackle Branden Albert their franchise player.

Happy to see folks are happy with the next phase of the Chiefs program. I, however, was perfectly happy to give up my season tickets after 21 years. Let's see 210 regular season games (I count the two exhibition games since the costs are the same) and two playoff wins when Joe Montana was our QB. I have made some crappy investment choices in the past but this was probably the worst. There were fun times of course, these past years have almost made me want to start rooting for professional baseball again. Nah, that's not going to happen either.
