GEHA stands for Government Employees Health Association at Arrowhead Stadium. They have been the naming rights partner for the Chief from 2021 to 2031.

The home field of the Kansas City Chiefs was renamed back in 2021 which marked the franchise's 50th season at Arrowhead Stadium. With GEHA buying the naming rights, it was officially renamed as the GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chief's lease expires with the owner of the stadium, the Jackson County Sports Complex Authority in January 2031, and the deal between GEHA and the Chiefs will also end simultaneously.

Selling the stadium's naming rights has become some sort of a trend in recent years with many professional teams doing so. It is a great way of doing business since many big businesses will be willing to pay the sum for buying the naming rights and to be associated with a sports team.

The Arrowhead Stadium has been one of the best if not the best stadiums in the country and also holds the record for being the noisiest stadium when it hit 142.2 decibels back on September 29, 2014.

The health and dental insurance industry in Lee's Summit has made the best decision to associate with the Chiefs and vice-versa as both parties have a deep connection with the local community and understand each other.

The Government Employees Health Association (GEHA) is a not-for-profit association. More than 2 million people are provided benefits through GEHA.

The self-insured association provides medical and dental plans to federal employees and retirees along with their families through a program called the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB). They also have another program named the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP).

The GEHA is responsible for providing the required benefits to more than two million people not just in the United States but worldwide. It was founded by Railway Mail clerks in 1937 in Kansas City, Missouri.

GEHA and the Kansas City Chiefs have had a history since 2019 when the association became the Chiefs' Exclusive Health, Dental, and Vision Plan Partner. Their partnership went up a notch when it was announced on March 4, 2021, that GEHA would become the naming rights partner for Arrowhead Stadium.

Beginning with the 2021 NFL season, the Arrowhead Stadium is officially named the GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium and is pronounced as G.E.H.A. 

Capacity Of Kansas City Chiefs Stadium

Kansas City Chiefs Stadium named the GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium has a capacity of 76,416. The stadium is the 24th largest stadium in the United States.

The Arrowhead Stadium broke ground on July 11, 1968, and was officially opened on August 12, 1972. It cost $43 million for the entire construction which would be equivalent to around $377 million in 2023.

When it comes to NFL Stadiums, GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium is the fourth-largest NFL Stadium and the largest in terms of capacity in Missouri.

Designed by Kivett and Myers, the stadium was also home to the Kansas City Wizards of the MLS from 1996-2007. The Arrowhead Stadium will also be one of the venues that will host matches of the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

The Chiefs are set to play their next home game against the Chicago Bears on September 24 on Sunday. Most of the tickets as expected are sold out since many fans are season ticket holders and others have bought it in time.

Out of the remaining tickets that are available, the pricing on Ticketmaster is quite high for the home game at Arrowhead Stadium.

  • Section 322, Row 30 - $225 
  • Section 329, Row 28 - $250
  • Section 346, Row 19 - $400
  • Section 118, Row 27 - $750
  • Section 101, Row 8 - $855
  • Section 119, Row 5 - $1,700

There are hardly any bad seats when you visit any football stadium and when it comes to the home field of the Chiefs, there is not a single seat that would not give the fans a good view of the game.

The prices of the tickets are determined by where you will be seated. The closer your seat is to the pitch, the higher the prices. The 50-yard line is one of the most sought-after tickets and therefore comes at a high price such as Section 119.

The view from right behind the field goal is another great seat and gives a good view of the action such as Section 128, Row 7 which is priced at $420.

The stadium was renovated back in 2010 which cost $375 million and added 7,000 club seats and 162 luxury suites. The stadium is expected to go under renovation once again for the hosting of the World Cup in 2026.

Who Sponsors Arrowhead Stadium

The Kansas City Chiefs sold the naming rights for the stadium to GEHA in 2021 and renamed the stadium as part of the deal. The deal will end in January 2031.

This is the first time Arrowhead Stadium has had a sponsor, and of all other potential partners, the Chiefs chose GEHA as the best option since they share the Chiefs' core values.

The franchise had been looking for a naming rights partner for more than a decade and finally found one in GEHA. The 10-year deal does involve monetary value as GEHA will be paying a sum for buying and becoming the naming rights sponsors for the Chiefs' stadium.

Wanting to be associated with professional sports teams is not limited to only businesses but any organization can do so and becoming a naming rights partner is one of the best ways possible. The sponsorship deal works out for the best for both parties involved.

Although the Chiefs sold the naming rights, the franchise had made it clear in the past that the Arrowhead Stadium is to remain an identity and would not let go of its stadium name and identity completely.

The stadium has been one of the best stadiums in the United States and has witnessed many amazing contests being held at the venue. The reigning champions have not made the best start to their campaign this year after suffering a loss in the season opener.
