If you don’t live in Kansas City

If you do not live in the Kansas City market, or anywhere nearby, the best bet is NFL Sunday Ticket, which is the premium add-on the NFL offers to out-of-market fans.

do chiefs fans need sunday ticket?

If you’re out-of-market and want all the games guaranteed, yes. However, with the rise of Mahomes, the Chiefs have been on national TV and hybrid national regional games more regularly. Sunday Ticket is probably more important for east coast Chiefs fans than west coast fans, who will get a good number of Chiefs games even out-of-market.

We haven’t met, but I know you. You are a big NFL fan. You talk and text about upcoming games…

How to watch the Chiefs FAQ

Which regions are in-market for Chiefs games?

The Chiefs are the featured team in Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, and parts of the mountain west. TV coverage for most NFL regular season games is regional. Local fans in Kansas City will get most Chiefs games on their CBS affiliate, KCTV CBS 5, as will some fans in markets close to Kansas City. For NFL fans in parts of Iowa for example, a state without an NFL franchise, the Chiefs will be their local NFL team. For a guarantee of tuning into Chief’s games, east and west coast fans will need to buy NFL Sunday Ticket, which is the NFL’s premium out-of-market product.

Which radio stations carry Chiefs games?

106.5 “The Wolf” is the official radio home of the Kansas City Chiefs, and the play by play audio can be live streamed here.
