Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas expressed his commitment to working with the Chiefs and Royals to develop a more inclusive and effective process to ensure the teams remain in Kansas City for generations to come. The biggest ballot item in Missouri’s general election was the Jackson County Stadium sales tax, but unfortunately, voters rejected Jackson County’s Question 1, which would have imposed a 3/8-cent sales tax on the stadium projects of the Kansas City Chiefs and Kansas City Royals.

GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Chiefs, is the NFL’s third-oldest active stadium, having opened on August 12, 1972. Kauffman Stadium, home to the Royals, is the sixth-oldest active MLB stadium, and its first game was played on April 10, 1973. Chiefs stars Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce were part of an ad urging Jackson County voters to approve the sales tax measure.

Despite this setback for Jackson County residents who supported the measure, there is optimism that a collaborative approach will be adopted by all parties involved in addressing Kansas City’s stadium funding issue.
