The Chiefs are in their final year of the five-year deal of having training camp at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph. From 1991 to 2009, the Chiefs held training camp in River Falls, Wisconsin. Since then, the Chiefs have moved closer to home and made it easier for Chiefs fans from Kansas City to see them in camp.
From the public's perspective, there has never been anything negative between the Chiefs and MWSU. However, Randy Covitz of The Kansas City Star reports that the Chiefs will decide by the end of the calendar year where they will hold future training camps.
The Chiefs certainly will take the opportunity to explore their options, and money is a big factor in situations like this. Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt spoke positively about the city and facility at MWSU. It's an affordable day trip (or two-day trip) for Chiefs fans in the Kansas City area, unlike River Falls.
The next-best option would be to have training camp at William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri. The Chiefs originally held training camp at this location from 1963, the franchise's first year in Kansas City, all the way through 1990. Going back could be an option, and it would be even closer for fans as it's within the Kansas City suburbs.
