With the NFL’s change to a 17-game regular season in 2021, each team’s preseason schedule has been cut from four games to three.
Unlike in previous seasons, all NFL teams knew their preseason opponents and locations when the final regular-season schedule was released on May 12. The Chiefs were set to play the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals on the road, completing the preseason with a home game against the Minnesota Vikings.
But until now, we didn’t have all the preseason information — including specific dates, times and television broadcasts. Here’s the complete exhibition schedule.
2021 Preseason Schedule
|@49ers||Levi's Stadium |
Santa Clara, California
|@Cardinals||State Farm Stadium |
|Vikings||GEHA Field at Arrowhead |
All times are Arrowhead Time.
This information is also available on our Chiefs schedule page, which you can access under the Resources tab on any Arrowhead Pride page.
Under the protocol the league has established for the additional regular-season game, all AFC teams (including the Kansas City Chiefs) will have an extra home game this year. So that each team will still have 10 home games on their schedule, AFC teams will play two of their preseason games on the road and one at home. After 2021, the conferences will alternate; in 2022, NFC teams will have the ninth regular-season home game and just one preseason game at home.
