Arrowhead Stadium Is No More, As Chiefs Sell Naming Rights

With the recent success of the Kansas City Chiefs, sports fans everywhere have become familiar with Arrowhead Stadium, where Chiefs play home games.

Well, forget all that. It’s Arrowhead no more.

Instead, the Chiefs have sold naming rights to GEHA, which offers medical and dental plans for federal employees and their families.

So what used to be Arrowhead Stadium will now be called GEHA Field.

“We are extremely proud and excited to announce our naming rights agreement with GEHA. When we set out to find a partner for the field at Arrowhead, it was critical to identify a national leader that shares our core values, as well as a deep connection to the local community and respect for Chiefs Kingdom,” Chiefs president Mark Donovan said in a statement.

“Our relationship with GEHA over the last few years has only served to reinforce the alignment between our two organizations and proven their strong, long-standing relationship with the local community. This expanded partnership will continue to build lasting health and wellness programs that support the team, GEHA and our community.”

Fittingly, GEHA has also served as the Chiefs’ health, dental and vision plan partner for several years.

Per KSNT-TV: “The long-term contract (between the Chiefs and GEHA) runs through the end of the current lease agreement with Jackson County Sports Complex Authority.”

Those who are employed by the Chiefs and stadium will begin sporting GEHA Field logos on their company work outfits as soon as they become available.

The Chiefs have been to two consecutive Super Bowls behind the arm of quarterback Patrick Mahomes, losing the most recent game to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-9. At least now if the Chiefs ever get their teeth kicked in at home, they should be in line for some quick dental care.

  1. I don’t understand how all these Health Insurance groups have so much money to throw around on naming sports complexes. If they’re that flush, maybe they should be paying more claims and/or lowering premiums.

  2. Arrowhead Stadium is NOT going away. From Chiefs.com….
    “Beginning with the 2021 NFL season, the home of the Chiefs will be GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.
    GEHA and the Chiefs are committed to ensuring Arrowhead Stadium remains the identity of the stadium.”
