For the third consecutive year, Chiefs Season Ticket Members (STMs) gathered at The University of Kansas Hospital Training Complex on Thursday evening to celebrate the NFL Draft.
This sold out event featured exclusive draft coverage, a photo op with the Super Bowl IV trophy and Chiefs Cheerleaders, a meet and greet with former Chiefs players and a chance to hear from coaches and players.
“Our organization embraces our Season Ticket Members,” Bill Chapin, Chiefs Senior VP of Business Operations, said. “Three years ago we committed to creating the best Draft Day Party for our STMs, which included unique and compelling experiences. This is an important party for our STM’s because draft day is an important and exciting day in the NFL and for the Kansas City Chiefs. We want to open up our home to share the passion for the Chiefs with the best fans in the NFL.”
The event was hosted by Voice of the Chiefs Mitch Holthus and Sports Radio 810 WHB’s Steven St. John. During the event, fans heard from Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt, Head Coach Andy Reid, General Manager John Dorsey, coaches, players and Ambassadors.
“Watching the draft with fellow Chiefs fans, plus, all of the coaches, players and John Dorsey is just awesome,” Greg Taylor, STM since 2002, said. “Hearing from Coach Reid and John Dorsey right before the draft was great. I bleed Red and Gold so I think this is an incredible event.”
STMs were able to bid on experiences, such as meeting some of the Chiefs players backstage.
“I bid on this opportunity to meet some of the players through ChiefsKingdomPass.com and was so excited that I won,” Afton Graham, STM from 2009, said. “It’s so cool to be backstage and meet the players. We got photos and autographs and it was just an overall amazing experience.”
Some STMs received a private lounge area to enjoy the party, while other STMs had the opportunity to meet General Manager John Dorsey and Head Coach Andy Reid.
“This is such a cool experience,” Lindsey Rolf, STM noted. “It was so exciting meeting Coach Reid. I’m a huge Chiefs fan so this is a dream come true, it’s awesome.”Thank you to all of our fans who celebrated draft day with us.
