Kansas City Chiefs Training Camp in St Joseph

November 17th, 2022 by admin Leave a reply »

The Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL) will be holding their annual preseason training camp in St. Joseph, Missouri between the dates of Thursday July 29, 2010 and Thursday August 19, 2010. After holding their annual training camp in River Falls, Wisconsin for many years this will be the inaugural training camp held in St. Joseph, Missouri.

The city of St. Joseph, Missouri has a population of about 75,000 people and is located approximately one hour north of Arrowhead Stadium where the Kansas City Chiefs play eight home football games a season. St. Joseph and by extension Kansas City are located in the northwestern portion of the state near the Kansas, Nebraska, and to a lesser extent the Iowa border. Kansas City, located on the Missouri River, is about a four hour drive on I-70 from St. Louis Missouri which is located on the east side of the state on the Mississippi river bordering Illinois.

The motivation for the Chiefs to move from River Falls, Wisconsin to St. Joseph, Missouri was is in part due to the closer proximity to loyal fans in the surrounding area. Whereas previous coaching staffs and team administrators had rationalized the Wisconsin location as a more secluded area where the team could perhaps better focus without as many distractions from fans crowding the area the current thought within the organization is that a training camp move closer to home will hopefully translate into a reinvigorated fan base after several losing seasons in which the team failed to make the playoffs.
