With the 2021 schedule set to be released on Wednesday evening, the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday announced plans for ticket sales at full capacity for the upcoming season.

The move opens up every seat at 76,416-seat GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium one year after the Chiefs limited capacity to roughly 17,000 fans per game in 2020 in order to adhere to safety protocols put in place because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tickets to all home games at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium will go on sale on Thursday and will be available to the general public at at noon. Season ticket holders will have access to an exclusive online presale beginning at 11 a.m.

In addition, in continuation with the team’s long-standing policy, taxpayers of Jackson County Missouri also will have a presale opportunity to purchase single-game tickets from 8-10 a.m. Thursday.

The team also announced on Monday that every ticket used for entry into Arrowhead during the 2021 season will be sent out via mobile delivery and that the ticket office would not be open for any walk-up sales.

Although the specific dates for each game will not be unveiled until Wednesday, the opponents are already known.

As the NFL moves to a 17-game schedule for the first time in league history, the two-time defending AFC champions will host home games against Denver, Las Vegas, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Buffalo, Dallas, Green Bay, the Los Angeles Chargers and the New York Giants.

The Chiefs will go on the road to face the Chargers, Denver, Las Vegas, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Washington, Philadelphia and Tennessee.

The 2021 season also will mark the first year of Kansas City’s home venue being known as GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. As such, fans will see new branding and signage throughout the venue.

The Chiefs will officially release their 2021 schedule on their social media channels — Twitter, Instagram and Facebook — at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday.

The entire NFL schedule for the upcoming season will be revealed on NFL Network beginning at 7 p.m.
