Everything you need to know as Kansas City’s training camp approaches.
It’s almost here!
One week from Tuesday — on July 27 — every member of the Kansas City Chiefs’ 90-man roster should be at training camp at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri.
For the first time this offseason, we’ll get a sustained look at how the Chiefs are lining up their players for the coming season — and see how the team’s newest players perform under something fairly close to playing conditions.
Quarterbacks and rookies will report to St. Joseph on Friday, when we expect to hear from Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes. QBs and rookies will participate in closed practices through the weekend. Reporters will be allowed to observe those practices — and we expect to hear from the Chiefs again on both Saturday and Sunday.
The veteran non-quarterbacks will report on Monday. We do not expect reporters to observe their arrival, but we do expect some of them to be available virtually. The first training camp practice will be on Wednesday — but it will be open only to Chiefs season ticket members. The first public practice will be on Thursday.
Unlike in past seasons, tickets for Chiefs training camp practices must be reserved ahead of time through ChiefsKingdomRewards.com. Except for the practices on Friday, July 30, Saturday, July 31 and Sunday, August 8, there is no charge for these tickets — but Missouri Western will charge $5 for parking on all public practice days.
