Vikings-Chiefs Game Will Be On TV In Kansas City

The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium and the game will indeed be broadcast on TV in Kansas City. The Chiefs say they've met the league's requirements on ticket sales to broadcast the game locally.

If enough tickets aren't sold to meet the league's definition of a sellout then games can't be shown on local TV. Football fans know this as a blackout.

But the game will be on local TV this time -- FOX 4 at 12:00 p.m. (Arrowhead Time). 

The Chiefs ticket sales will be an interesting development to follow throughout the season and one that could affect those in KC quite a bit if we're not hitting sellouts.

The Chiefs had their first blackout in nearly 20 years near the end of the 2009 season, a season in which the team won just four games. And it's not just the bad teams that are in blackout danger. I remember in Week 16 last year Chiefs president Mark Donovan said that the Chiefs were in danger of getting blacked out -- as the team was putting the finishing touches on a division championship.

After this weekend, the Chiefs won't return home until Halloween night when they host the San Diego Chargers and begin a three-game homestand.
