It's been announced that the Kansas City Chiefs are hosting the Detroit Lions in London next year. The game will be played in Week 8 on the 2015 schedule. Fans based internationally seem to like it (obviously) while those based around Kansas City do not (obviously).
Let's take a peek at some of the reactions I've come across since the announcement came down.
YES!!!! Cannot believe the Chiefs have given up a home game however but fuck it, I'm there.— David (@DavieC82) November 6, 2014
When are tickets available for the NFL next year at wembley. Can't wait to see the @KCChiefs— Gemma Whitehead (@gem10whitehead) November 6, 2014
Imagine if Seahawks gave up a home game to go to London...it would be a riot. Feel bad for Chiefs fans..— Sea2Sky Sports (@Seahawk604) November 6, 2014
@ArrowheadPride why does this cost us a home game? Why can't it can't as a road game for both teams and they still get 8 at home? Any idea?— Lendsey Thomson (@LendseyT) November 6, 2014
@ArrowheadPride Nothing cool about the London game. Marketing ploy for the NFL; fans lose out on a home game. Gimmick.— Bert (@RASKC05) November 6, 2014
@ArrowheadPride they better fly me to London then or I'm canceling ST— Sheldon Wilkening (@Swilk15) November 6, 2014
If the Chiefs raise ticket prices to make up for losing a home game next year I am done— Jeff Hirst (@JHirst941) November 6, 2014
Another thing: taxpayers put what, $250 million into Arrowhead renovations? So they coughed up money so the Chiefs could give up home game?— Adam Teicher (@adamteicher) November 6, 2014
