The Chiefs have threatened that the team could leave Kansas City if a sales tax extension for the renovated Arrowhead Stadium is not passed earlier this month. But that did not happen, creating uncertainty about the team's future in the city.

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson He jumped everywhere Kansas City's dilemma, as he uses it for political gain Recruiting bosses.

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas responded on social media recently, declaring that the Chiefs aren't going anywhere.

“I'm hearing rumors, including from the mayor of Dallas,” Lucas wrote. “Kansas City, don't believe the hype. We're committed to keeping our teams at a much lower expense — think building the necessary infrastructure — than even commuting within the metro. Both teams will be at KCMO in 2040 and long after.”

The Chiefs' lease at Arrowhead Stadium expires after the 2030 season.

Chiefs owner Clark Hunt lives in Dallas, and the franchise was founded by his father, Lamar, in Dallas in 1959. The Texans played three seasons in Dallas in the NFL, winning the championship in 1962, before moving to Kansas City.

But the Cowboys have played in the suburbs since 1971, because Dallas did not pay public money to help build a stadium for the team. And the Cotton Bowl is not fit to be a permanent NFL stadium even with millions in renovations.
