The Kansas City Chiefs are opening the Arrowhead gates earlier than usual. The Chiefs say that the parking lots for the game will open at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, January 15 for the Chiefs Divisional round game at 12:05 p.m. (Arrowhead Time).
The Chiefs sent out this release today:
Parking lots for the game will open at 6:30 a.m.
During the first hour of parking from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m., fans will be able to “open park,” allowing them to park in their preferred spot in any approved grass areas or Lots C, D, F, G and the perimeter of Lot N, as long as it matches the parking pass they have purchased. Once open park ends at 7:30 a.m., cars will be directed to the next available spot as they are for all Chiefs games.
Chiefs Kingdom Rewards members who arrive early can collect a special triple-point early arrival reward, earning 2,400 CKR points instead of 800 points by scanning their prepaid parking pass at the tollgates by 8 a.m.
As was announced on Monday after the AFC Divisional Game was confirmed Sunday night, fans can visit www.chiefs.com/parking to secure their parking passes in advance and plan their trip to Arrowhead Stadium.
Parking passes bought in advance are $35 plus fees. It will cost a brutal $60 (!!) to park if you buy your pass at the gates. Someone is going to show up 30 minutes before the game, pay $60 and be very angry about getting to their seat in the second quarter.
