Posted: Updated:

The Kansas City Chiefs and Missouri Western State have agreed to keep Chiefs training camp in St. Joseph, Missouri this upcoming summer. The agreement also has an option for an additional one-year extension for 2019.

“We are quite proud of the recent success of the Kansas City Chiefs and are looking forward to continuing our relationship with them,” said Dr. Robert Vartabedian, Missouri Western’s president. “Our campus and the St. Joseph community take great pride in hosting the Chiefs, and I'm pleased they will return in 2018.”

“We have been engaged in positive, constructive discussions with Missouri Western State University representatives for months and are pleased to reach this agreement to keep Chiefs Training Camp in St. Joseph,” Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. “When we moved training camp back to the state of Missouri in 2010, we could not have imagined the reception and support that Missouri Western and the entire community have provided us. It’s an exciting time in Chiefs Kingdom and we look forward to returning to St. Joseph next summer.”

The Chiefs have held training camp in St. Joe since 2010, the third-longest at any one location.
