If you are planning to attend a Kansas City Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium and don’t yet have tickets, you might be wondering about your options. Can you buy Chiefs tickets at the stadium gate?

Update: Yes, you can buy Chiefs tickets at the stadium, but only as long as supplies last. That said, for reasons we discuss below, many fans choose to buy their tickets online before they go to the game. Tickets can be purchased online through the team’s website as long as supplies last, or through ticket brokers like StubHub or Vivid Seats. I like to use Vivid Seats because they show me what my view from the seats will look like prior to purchase.

If you choose to buy directly from the team, you can do so by downloading the Chiefs Mobile App to your mobile device. The Chiefs Mobile App keeps you connected to the team with news, updated rosters, stats and injury reports. It also gives you access to ticket purchasing. To learn more about the Chiefs Mobile App, click here.  

The main Arrowhead Ticket Office is located on the northeast side of Arrowhead Stadium adjacent to the Founder’s Plaza and Hy-Vee Gate. Many ticket offices have adjusted hours due to the pandemic, and my advice is to contact the Chiefs ticket office to confirm current hours of operation (view contact information).

Buying NFL tickets online can help simplify the process and remove some of the annoyances and risks that come from trying to buy tickets at the stadium. In this article, we discuss how to buy Chiefs tickets at Arrowhead Stadium, and what your other options might be.

Buying Chiefs Tickets at the Stadium

Can You Buy Chiefs Tickets at Arrowhead Stadium?

Yes, as we discussed earlier, you can buy Kansas City Chiefs tickets at the stadium, but only if there are tickets available. The Chiefs Ticket Office is located on the northeast side of Arrowhead Stadium adjacent to the Founder’s Plaza and Hy-Vee Gate (view).

If you choose to buy directly from the team, you can do so by downloading the Chiefs Mobile App to your mobile device. The Chiefs Mobile App keeps you connected to the team with news, updated rosters, stats and injury reports. It also gives you access to ticket purchasing.

It is important to understand, if you are hoping to walkup and buy tickets at Arrowhead Stadium for a game that same day, you likely won’t have any luck. Very rarely are there tickets available at the stadium on game day. 

The Kansas City Chiefs home games sellout frequently. Therefore, if you wait to buy tickets at the game, you will likely miss out. Buying your tickets in advance, if possible, is always best.

If you are hoping to buy tickets for games in the future, you do have the option to search on Vivid Seats or some other online ticket broker. If you want to try to buy through the Chiefs Ticket Office, my advice is to reach out to them via phone or internet.

Many ticket offices have adjusted hours due to the pandemic, and my advice is to contact the Chiefs ticket office to confirm current hours of operation.

Issues with Buying Chiefs Tickets at the Stadium

Here are a few risks and annoyances you will want to consider if you are planning on buying Chiefs tickets at the gate.

  • Sellout – This is the big one. As we mentioned above, Chiefs home games frequently sellout. Walking up and buying tickets at Arrowhead Stadium on game day likely won’t work.
  • Options – You also may find that even if there are tickets left for purchase that you don’t like any of the available seats or prices, especially if you are going to the game with a group of people. Buying online allows you to browse before you go, and find something that works for you. 
  • Ticket Lines – Be prepared, waiting in line is a possibility if you choose to buy at the stadium. The overall wait can obviously fluctuate depending on the specific circumstance, and may be relatively short for some games. But a wait is possible.

Best Online Site for Chiefs Tickets

Buying from the team, if possible, is always the best option. But some fans like to use online ticket brokers like StubHub and Vivid Seats, which give you access to re-sold fan-to-fan tickets.

I like to use Vivid Seats because they show me what my view from the seats will look like prior to purchase. Click here to view Kansas City Chiefs tickets available at VividSeats.com (affiliate link takes you to vividseats.com).

Buying tickets online can be a bit scary when it comes to giving out your information, which is why Vivid Seats has their 100% Buyer Guarantee program. The program is designed to give you security and peace of mind when you are buying tickets online. Here is all that comes with the 100% Buyers Guarantee program:

  • Hassle Free Customer Service
  • Private and Secure transaction (no selling or sharing your information to brokers)
  • Tickets Delivered before the Event Guaranteed or Money Back
  • Valid and Authentic Tickets or money back
  • Accurate Order Guarantee (your tickets will be identical, comparable, or better than your order or money back)
  • Money Back Guarantee for Cancelled Events

Not only do they make sure you are satisfied and your transactions are secure, but they also have a very user-friendly platform. When you go to purchase tickets, they show you exactly where the seats are on the stadium map. They also give you an actual picture view from those seats.

Vivid Seats Loyalty Program

As mentioned, Vivid Seats has a great loyalty program. Depending on how much you spend, you can earn up to 9% cash back on any purchase you make with them. Not only do you get an incredible 9% cash back if you reach “HOF” status, you will also get access to special VIP events and other additional perks. You can see more details here.

Of course, you can always contact the Chiefs and see if they have tickets available, but often times buying through an online ticket broker gives you a wider range of tickets and prices to choose from anyway. If there are no more tickets available through the Chiefs official website, the buying through a ticket broker like Vivid Seats is needed. 

The difference between buying from Vivid Seats versus buying directly from the team is Vivid Seats is a secondary ticket marketplace, meaning fan-to-fan. As mentioned, usually online ticket brokers like Vivid Seats will have a lot more tickets available and options to choose from.

There are, of course, other fan-to-fan ticket sites out there besides Vivid Seats that will also work just fine (like Stubhub). But I like to use Vivid Seats to take advantage of their 100% Buyer Guarantee and loyalty program. Click here to browse through Chiefs tickets on Vivid Seats to see what seats are available, and what prices (affiliate link takes you to VividSeats.com).

The NFL has partnered with Ticketmaster as the preferred primary ticketing partner.  Ticketmaster also has an online platform called Ticket Exchange, which is also a very popular fan-to-fan platform that competes with Vivid Seats.

Arrowhead stadium is known for energetic fans and loud roars.  Arrowhead Stadium currently holds the Guinness Book of World Record for loudest roar inside a sports stadium.
