Local chiefs fans already buzzing for Sunday's game

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Monday night in Old Town looked a lot like the calm in between Chiefs playoffs games. But don’t let the quiet bars fool you, Chiefs fans are still pretty excited.

“Their offense has no choke in it,” said Matthew Jones, Assistant General Manager of Pumphouse. “I had a friend that got online at noon, when tickets went on sale. And there were 2,000 people in cue just for tickets, just to look for seats at the stadium.”

The cheapest tickets were still available on Chiefs.com for $260 Monday evening. And anyone headed to the game is likely looking for as much cold logo’d gear they can find.

“I heard it’s gonna snow,” said Brande Branine with Academy Sports and Outdoors. “The hoodies, they’re going pretty good.”

Retailers like Academy are stocked with those hoodies, beanies, lanyards, tshirts and other items – and they expect the demand to get higher the closer to Sunday’s game.

With a team so good, business owners don’t just cater to fans, they cheer with them, too.

“Our team members are fans, too,” Branine said. “So they’re super excited as well.”

And some are already making bold predictions.

“I have a feeling we’re gonna see them in the Super Bowl this year,” Jones said.
