LAMAR HUNT ANNOUNCES THE BIRTH OF CHIEFS NATION
Apr 17, 2006, 12:00:01 PM

People may think that Chiefs fans only reside in the areas around Kansas City. However if you bleed Red and Gold you know that the Chiefs Universe extends far beyond metropolitan Kansas City, the grasslands of Western Kansas and the Ozark Mountains. With 48 of 50 states represented by Chiefs season ticket holders, one can truly make the statement that this is indeed a Chiefs Nation. Now, Kansas City football fans from around the globe will be officially united as Chiefs Founder Lamar Hunt announces the birth of Chiefs Nation.

”With the unprecedented breadth of interest in Kansas City football we are now establishing a further Chiefs fans base opportunity for people all across America,” Hunt said on the birthday of Chiefs Nation. “Beginning today, fans may register for an opportunity to establish clear ties to the Chiefs organization which will provide each fan the opportunity to be part of the ‘Arrowhead Experience’ every year.”

This is your chance to become a founding member of the official fan group of the Kansas City Chiefs. By joining this exclusive club you’ll join Chiefs fans from all over the world who share the same passion and allegiance for everything Chiefs. As the unofficial “51st state”, residents of the Chiefs Nation will enjoy benefits unavailable to other fans.

“I’m amazed over the years at the various games how many times I bumped into some one who had traveled a long distance to attend their first Chiefs game,” Hunt added. “Chiefs Nation will provide the opportunity for such pilgrimages in the future.”

A few of the member benefits include…

--Each member is sent a Chiefs Nation citizenship card. You will also receive an electronic membership confirmation with your own PIN/Account number to access your private page on our web site www.kcchiefs.com via the Chiefs Nation page.

--There you will find special stories and content not available to the general public: Insider stories, bios of other fans around the world, interviews, photos, etc.

--You will receive the opportunity to acquire upper level tickets to a 2006 home games; we can’t promise specific games, but we’ll do our best to help you select a date to see the Chiefs play an opponent of your choosing!

--Additionally, when the Chiefs storm their way to the playoffs and capture homefield advantage, you will be offered the opportunity to acquire four upper level tickets to Arrowhead to those elite games, as well.

So join this ever-growing movement and cement your dual citizenship through the Chiefs Nation!

actually 8 bucks per year doesn't sound bad at all to me.

you could get your money back just from the free shipping with online sales.

:shrug:



but if it catches on, you know it will go from $8 to $48 in a heartbeat.

My thoughts exactly. Sounds way too much like the Raider Nation. Chiefs could have come up with a much better/more original name.

But the price is right. And with the additional benefit of ticket purchase opportunities... why not?

Let's see, $8 for inside stories from the organization, or $79.95 for false inside stories from other "premium" sites.... decisions, decisions.

What the hell, I'll get it just for the stupid card that says Chiefs Nation. God knows I've done stupider things with $8 in my lifetime.

You indeed could waste 8 dollars in worse ways, but don't be silly and believe you will get any real insider information from that site. This is an organization led by Carl after all.

Hopefully they will make Ellen Wier and Rufus Dawes articles "insider" only.

As for the $8 fee, it seems like you are just paying for the opportunity to buy $65 tickets.

They probably think this is the best way to get rid of those upper deck corner seats that they have so much trouble selling at the end of the year when the Chiefs are out of the playoffs.

Actually, now that I think about it, and knowing Lamarl, one of the stipulations of signing up to be a member is probably an obligation to buy one of those upper deck corner tickets to a 2006 game.

Well, considering I just spent $100 on the below keyboard, I might do worse with $8.

(keyboard is actually pretty cool, just got it today)

I think sometimes those of you who live close to KC don't realize that these sorts of things could be helpful to those of us that would have to drop a pretty penny just to GET to KC, much less go to a game.

This is something that I will take advantage of. I haven't been to Arrowhead since preseason '96. It's just not within the realm of possibility for me to fly out there or drive, plus the cost of a ticket that I'd have to buy online or through a broker. This at least could guarantee that I'll get tickets at face value (I'm assuming that's what the deal is). Considering I'll probably spend over $200 to see the Chiefs in Pittsburgh this year, I think I can plop down 8 bucks for the possibility of going to 1 game a year. NOt to mention, the deal for playoff tickets is pretty sweet.

Arrowhead is like the great cathedral to my religion and I haven't been to worship in a long time.

Eh, **** it. I started to register and basically you're paying $8 to hold specific tickets for you. I thought it was going to be more of, "If you want to go to a game, now you will have an easier time getting tickets." It's more like, "Pay us $8 for EACH ticket you would like for us to hold that you will buy in the future.

Nevermind.

So, is this the official purpose of the "club"? Is this what everybody is seeing in the fine print?

How many have signed up. What do you really get other than this and free shipping on overpriced merch you can buy in other places cheaper?
