With New Arrowhead Complete, Chiefs Owner Says Kansas City Would Pursue Super Bowl

On Friday morning Chiefs owner Clark Hunt took me and a slew of media on a tour of the New Arrowhead Stadium showing off all the amenities and additions to the new digs.

Standing in the Penthouse Suite, he answered a few questions including one about a cold-weather Super Bowl, a quote which landed in Peter King's Monday Morning Quarterback.

"The first step on that is to see how the cold-weather Super Bowl goes in an outdoor stadium. If the league has a good experience in New York, then there will undoubtedly be many communities to come back and ask for a cold-weather Super Bowl, and we would certainly be on that list.''

Hunt was then asked how he voted in the New York Super Bowl bid.

Laughing, he said, "We don't disclose out votes but, let's just say, I think it was a very smart decision for the league."

After the league awarded New York the 2014 Super Bowl, we reached out to Clark Hunt regarding his interest in pursuing a Super Bowl and he expressed similar sentiments.

"We would certainly be interested in hosting a Super Bowl at Arrowhead. What a tremendous opportunity to showcase Kansas City, and celebrate my father's special association with the game. Kansas City would be a terrific host community for the NFL's premiere event."

The league may want to see how things go in New York in 2014 before awarding another cold-weather Super Bowl so we're likely a decade away from any possible Kansas City Super Bowl.

Maybe the league could award it to Kansas City in 2018, the same year Kansas City is angling to host the World Cup. That would solve the age old question: Is a Super Bowl party better than a World Cup party?
