There will be some changes in the Arrowhead Stadium parking areas Thursday night for the Kansas City Chiefs exhibition opener.
The Chiefs kick off at 7 p.m. against the Cincinnati Bengals, and fans entering the Truman Sports Complex at Gate 5 better have their parking pass ready — there will be no cash accepted at Gate 5.
Once inside the gates, fans will notice all the cars traveling in one counterclockwise direction. Chiefs president Mark Donovan said he is braced for fans who might have trouble adjusting to the changes, but asks for patience.
The second of two college football games at Arrowhead Stadium this season takes place Saturday. Northwest Missouri and Pittsburg State, two powerhouse NCAA Division II teams with undefeated records, will meet head-to-head. But the future is uncertain for this and other major college games being played at Arrowhead.
There have been no major college games at Arrowhead the last three seasons. That’s since the University of Missouri announced it would be departing for the Southeastern Conference and the University Kansas announced they would refuse to play Mizzou.
