 Road trip, anyone?

Don’t fret, there may actually be a chance for you to see the Las Vegas Raiders play live in the 2020 season.

All it will require is a flight to Kansas City (or a drive, because, the Raider Nation is everywhere) and good fortune of finding a ticket. The defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs announced on Monday they are planning to play in front of 22% capacity at Arrowhead Stadium this season. That means about 16,700 fans will be able to attend games there.

It isn’t much, but with many teams (including all Raiders’ games at new Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas) planning to play without any fans all season this is encouraging news during the coronavirus pandemic. Of course, things can change because everything is always fluid during these uncertain times.

The Raiders visit Arrowhead Stadium on Oct. 11. Tickets in Kansas City are always a hard get, and they will be even more difficult to come by this year, but it’s comforting to know, there is a least a chance for some Raiders’ fans to see the team play live in 2020.
