According to the Kansas City Star, the earlier report that a naming rights deal was imminent is false.

The Kansas City Chiefs indicated the report in question was inaccurate and that "nothing is imminent."

A chiefs spokeswoman indicated that the team has engaged in naming rights discussions as beginning in 2006 but no deal has been finalized and no announcement is planned.

In a second article the Star reports Chiefs president Mark Donovan reasserted the report was false.

"There’s no basis in fact," Donovan said. "Not sure where the blogger is getting his information, but there is no announcement planned."

Though the team has participated in naming rights discussions with a few companies since 2006 none of them have made it past the preliminary stage.

Kansas City is possibly through the preliminary stages of a deal at present and it was looking so positive someone on the inside let something slip? Chances are we won't know until they want us to know.

It appears no name change is likely to take place this month. We still shouldn't be Surprised if one day that our beloved Arrowhead Stadium is something like KG&E Field at Arrowhead.
