Officials From Missouri Western, Chiefs Comment On Training Camp In St. Joe

In a segment on KMBC 9 News Tuesday morning, Missouri State Western University officials and Chiefs president Denny Thum commented on the upcoming training camp in St. Joe, MO.

For the first time in nearly two decades, the Chiefs won't be in River Falls, WI for training camp. There are two new practice fields at Missouri Western as well as an indoor practice facility. Officials are expecting up to 10,000 people on certain activity-filled days. There's an area for kids while practice is going on.

There will be 24 practices in 22 days.

Comments are after the jump.

Chiefs President Denny Thum:

"A big part was the number of season ticket holders that were in St. Joe. Our fans talk about the caravan on Sunday afternoons of our fans driving down I-29 to Arrowhead. It was important to us that we were in an area and a community where we would have great support."

Director of athletic facilities Mike Halloran:

"We can't wait for camp to get here. We're excited to showcase our university and city."

University President Dr. Robert Vartabadian;

"It certainly can [translate to more money for the University]. I think the kinds of crowds we're going to get, an the kinds of activities will effect recruitment. I think it will translate, eventually, to some money."
