Chiefs’ success big reason why fans will be at Super Bowl

There will be about 25,000 fans inside Raymond James Stadium for the Super Bowl on Sunday. One reason the Buccaneers and Chiefs won’t be playing before oceans of empty seats is Kansas City helped to prove it was possible to have folks in the stands. The Chiefs hosted the Texans in the kickoff to the season. They had a plan from the start for about 22% of capacity — about 17,000 fans — for each game at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs never experienced an outbreak traced back to their fans. Chiefs president Mark Donovan says they are proud having been the first team to host fans safely.
