On Sunday, Chiefs Season Ticket Members (STMs) were invited to spend the morning at Chiefs Training Camp presented by Mosaic Life Care.
Fans were greeted by Chiefs Cheerleaders and KC Wolf before heading inside to enjoy breakfast from Chris Cakes, infamous for their delicious pancakes that are tossed straight from the skillet to your plate.
They also had the opportunity to meet Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt and some of the Ambassadors, including Shawn Barber and Anthony Davis.
“It was really exciting being at Chiefs Training Camp and seeing the team up close and personal,” Bill Allen, STM for six years, said. “It was pretty amazing to have a great pancake breakfast, meet some former players and meet Clark Hunt. We always look forward to this time of year and the excitement that surrounds camp.”
A group of fans drove up from Fort Worth, Texas to participate in STM Day and to have the opportunity to meet Clark Hunt and spend the day at camp for the first time.
“We had to come see the Chiefs so, we left on Friday from Texas and made it up to St. Joseph to enjoy training camp,” Lance Coleman, STM for five years, explained. “It’s awesome that Clark Hunt is out here meeting fans and we’re so glad we had the chance to finally come up to training camp and see the team.”
Another fan, who has been visiting Chiefs Training Camp for a number of years, is proud to be a STM and loves the atmosphere at camp.
“It feels like a big family here at camp, it’s great to be surrounded by the other STMs and die-hard Chiefs fans,” Mike Hopkins, STM for nine years, noted. “The Chiefs always do a great job of putting on these incredible events.”
The Chiefs are appreciative of the STMs and their support for the team. On Saturday, there were a record number of fans in attendance at the lower fields and Sunday’s count came very close. It means a lot to the players, the coaches and the organization that the fans show up every day to support their team.
“The start of training camp is always exciting; we appreciate the fans and their commitment to this team and we appreciate it every single year,” Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. “I think more importantly, the coaches said that the players really thrive off of the attention and energy. The way the fans show up is really impactful for our team and that’s really what we appreciate.”
