The Kansas City Chiefs came into existence as a charter member of the American Football League in 1960. In fact, original Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt was one of the businessmen who first came up with the idea for the upstart league. The Chiefs’ franchise originated in Dallas playing under the ‘Texans’ nickname. After three seasons, Hunt decided that being the second pro football team in the Dallas market wasn’t going to be viable and relocated to Kansas City. The Chiefs would call Municipal Stadium home until 1972 when they would move to their current venue, Arrowhead Stadium.
Kansas City would become a successful and consistent winner in the AFL and continuing after the merger with the NFL. They were the second AFL team after the New York Jets to win a Super Bowl game against the NFC (Super Bowl IV). While that was their last Super Bowl appearance, the Chiefs have made the NFL playoffs on thirteen other occasions including six divisional titles. The team has enjoyed a stable ownership throughout their existence. Original owner Lamar Hunt would remain in charge of day to day operations until his death in 2006. The Chiefs franchise remains under Hunt family control with Lamar’s son Clark Hunt overseeing operations.
The Chiefs’ fanbase ranks among the most loyal and passionate in the NFL. The Kansas City metro area is the sixth smallest of any National Football League team, but the Chiefs have consistently ranked near the top in attendance. The Kansas City fans have a reputation as being especially loud and rowdy, and Arrowhead Stadium is considered an especially miserable place for opposing teams to play. The Chiefs enjoy surprisingly wide support from fans around the country and around the world. For some reason, the team is especially popular in the United Kingdom, and there is even a dedicated fan run website specifically for UK Chiefs’ fans. They don’t have a regional rival, but the Chiefs’ most hated opponent has always been the Oakland Raiders. The source of the great animosity between the teams is unclear, but only the San Diego Chargers have such a venomous rivalry with ‘Raider Nation’.
Kansas City has plenty of fan support nationally and internationally but like every other team in the league are subject to the stipulations of the NFL broadcasting policies. Due to their popularity It’s not difficult to watch Chiefs football game live on television and the NFL’s broadcast partners love to carry the team. Finding a KC Chiefs live stream is a different matter. The league’s broadcast partners provide little if any live game streaming. You can watch Chiefs video highlights on the NFL’s official website, but that’s about it. A Chiefs radio live stream is easier to come by via the website of flagship station KCFX 101 FM. Fans who don’t mind spending a few hundred dollars can subscribe to the NFL Sunday Ticket premium cable package and access every regular season game on live TV. The package has also added a streaming platform at an additional cost, but it has a reputation for a buggy interface and substandard performance.
