Hey Chiefs Fans (Joel and Chris),
First off I would like to give a little bit of information so this post is not interpreted as an advertisement. I am in no way affiliated with anything to do with making money off of this fan club (CHIEFS FANS IN STL), the Kansas City Chiefs, NFL or the establishment we meet at. This is a post to make fans aware of the Chiefs meet up that I started 3 years ago. I have been trying to grow the fan base on my own with the help of other people I have acquired via Chiefs websites (including my favorite, Arrowhead Pride) to try and get an entire bar full of Chiefs fans every time they play! I do not work for the place we meet up and do not make money off of our gathering. I along with the other founders of CHIEFS FANS in STL, are just honest, hardworking diehard Chiefs fans who miss and enjoy the Arrowhead Atmosphere and Community that goes along with being in KC for games.
I have met some really creative and energetic Chiefs Fans who also live in St. Louis. The place where we meet is very accommodating to Chiefs Fans. Believe it or not, we have tailgates before the game (in the parking lot) until noon and then go inside to watch the game together and patronize the business. We also get the sound on the loudspeakers for the game (even over Rams). This does not happen much anywhere in STL. (strength in numbers). There are also specials for food and drink just for Chiefs fans that we work out with the establishment. They even let us play the "Hey" song after Touchdowns. It may sound cheesy, but it's as close of taste as a lot of us get on a regular basis outside of the one or two trips we can make to the stadium a year.
We have been working hard this offseason to step up our game as far as attracting new fans. This has included the creation of new pages online to help raise awareness. Typically our attendance averages between 20-50 Chiefs Fans. We are hoping to grow that number this year, as it has been my dream to create more buzz about the CHIEFS!!! in STL than the Rams (it's working). The goal is to pack the place out with over 100 chiefs fans and really take it to the next level.
In saying all of that, I would like to extend an invitation to any Chiefs fan living in the STL area that is craving to be plugged in with other passionate fans who breathe and bleed CHIEFS football. I started this club with the hope that I could find as many people like me, who for whatever reasons, are stuck in STL for CHIEFS games, but want to watch every game (with sound), with people just as excited, to connect with and build our own Chiefs meet up/community to be the biggest CHIEFS party in STL week in and week out. So far, so good. I would appreciate any repost, or telling people by mouth to help us grow as a community. Thank you for your time. GO CHIEFS!!
I can't wait to see what this year will bring for our CHIEFS! So much positive buzz around us!
We are even going to the CHIEFS/RAMS preseason game AUG 18th (and tailgating by Laclede's Landing again) in order to try to recruit more fans for our club! (Yes, I'm serious, and I'm that passionate about being able to recreate that atmosphere (if only a taste) here in STL.

Here is our first official meet up page (created by the Official Kansas City Chiefs, and promoted on Arrowhead Pride), This is by no means an advertisement for the establishment, just the place we choose to meet Meet up.
