Someone out there asked if the Chiefs had a public relations department.

Well they do and at the end of this article is the number to Josh Looney.

As far as I know he is a seasonal employee, but you might be able to reach him and let them know what you think about the prices at Arrowhead!

Kansas City Chiefs Announce Rescaled Ticket Pricing for 2008
Over 20,000 Seats Decrease in Price

The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Friday that a significant rescaling of Arrowhead stadium ticket prices will take place for the 2008 season. The new pricing structure includes a decrease in ticket prices for the majority of upper-level seating.
The Chiefs also announced a moderate increase in ticket prices for prime seating location, however, the average overall ticket price for the 2008 season will remain flat. There will be no increase in parking prices.
The most inexpensive seat in the stadium will be $39 per game when purchased as a season ticket, compared to $49 in 2007. The number of seats available in this price category will increase to nearly 5,000 seats, compared to last year’s 1,700 seats. Additionally, season ticket holders in the upper reserve area will notice a ticket decrease to $59 per game.
In total for 2008, over 20,000 seats at Arrowhead will go on sale for a lower price than last year. The Chiefs’ decision to build this new pricing model was in response to fan feedback, and sets the stage for the future in the New Arrowhead, which will be completed in 2010.
The Chiefs – as part of a program instituted last season – will continue to provide season ticket holders with more favorable pricing than fans who choose to buy single-game tickets.
The team also formally announced several fan-friendly programs that will be in force for the 2008 season. For seating chart and pricing see www.kcchiefs.com/tickets/seating (http://www.kcchiefs.com/tickets/seating).

Pre-Sale Opportunities
There are plenty of other perks that come with being a season ticket holder. In 2008, those advantages include pre-sale opportunities for the second annual MU/KU Border Showdown on November 29th, the Big 12 Championship Game on December 6th, and the return of the Northwest Missouri State vs. Pittsburg State Fall Classic on October 4th.

Fans Give Back
The Kansas City Chiefs and Ticketmaster are teaming up with Chiefs fans to give back to the community through the donation of tickets to the team’s home games. By donating pre-purchased Chiefs tickets or by purchasing them for the purpose of donating them, ticket holders have an opportunity to pass them along to underprivileged youth from Big Brothers/Big Sisters or to a member of our Armed Forces. The specific charity will issue a receipt for the value of the tickets for tax purposes. For those who receive donated tickets, the Chiefs and the stadium’s concessionaires – including Centerplate and Levy Restaurants – will provide a complimentary small soda and hot dog.

Chiefs TicketExchange
Season Ticket Holders who can’t make the game no longer have to lose out on their investment. Ticketmaster and the Chiefs announced a new service that allows fans to purchase premium Chiefs tickets directly from season ticket holders. Buying at Chiefs TicketExchange is secure and easy.

Fans First
The Chiefs have created a formal customer relations department for 2008 and beyond. Headed by Director of Customer Relations Anita Bailey, this department will “audit” the game day experience with secret shopping programs, supervise regular communication with season ticket holders, conduct fan surveys and run the newly created “fans first” booths to handle game day needs for Chiefs fans.

Season Ticket Holder 2008 “Perfect Attendance” Award
The Chiefs will honor all season ticket holders who utilize their tickets for all 2008 home games with a Perfect Attendance Award. The award will be in the form of a commemorative ball cap remembering Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt. The cap will not be sold in fan stands and will be a limited edition available only to season ticket holders in 2008.

Renovation Kick-off
This year also marks the opening days of the transition to the New Arrowhead, which by 2010 will offer new features and amenities that will be available to everyone, no matter where they sit. Wide-open concourses on all three levels will allow fans quicker and easier access to concessions and seating areas. Plans call for twice as many concession areas. More space means more food, beverage, and merchandise choices. A Hall of Honor worthy of the team’s history will paint a complete picture of the franchise’s proud past for all who visit the New Arrowhead. The new game day experience also will include an upgrade of the in-stadium sound and video systems. Also, a significant increase in the number of restrooms will get fans back to their seats and enjoying the game as quickly as possible.
