The Kansas City Chiefs, led by Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce, unfortunately couldn't secure victory in their efforts to renovate the Arrowhead Stadium. Prior to the start of voting in Jackson County, there were concerns that the Chiefs might have to relocate from Kansas City. Interestingly, it seems that Dallas could potentially become the new home for Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce.

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson Offers To Be The New Home To Chiefs 

The voters of Jackson County have rejected the proposal to extend the sales tax for 25 more years and use the funding to renovate the Arrowhead Stadium and get a new arena for MLB's Royals. The Chiefs and Royals presented a combined proposal in late March, and it was rejected on April 5.

The Chiefs had already brought forward the consequences of rejected votes, i.e., the team finding another home. It looks like Dallas is ready to be the home of the Chiefs once again. The Chiefs were originally founded by Lamar Hunt as the Dallas Texans in 1959. It was four years later that the team shifted to Kansas City.

The Mayor of Dallas, Eric Johnson, has recently come forward, expressing his interest in welcoming the Chiefs to their new home. "As I have said previously, our market is big enough, growing enough, and loves football more than enough to support a second NFL team," Eric Johnson said in his statement, as per MARCA.

Adding further, Eric highlighted the fact that the Chiefs already have deep roots in the city. Therefore, welcoming a team, "Especially a franchise with deep roots here," could be an advantageous deal for Dallas. The Chiefs have won three Super Bowls in the last five years.

The team is currently experiencing a remarkable winning streak, and it would be fantastic for Dallas if it became the new home for the Chiefs. When renowned players like Patrick Mahomes or the popular Travis Kelce move to Dallas, they will undoubtedly attract a massive fanbase that could potentially shift from Kansas City to Dallas. Do you believe Kansas City would allow such a scenario to unfold?
