Chiefs quickly shut down report of naming rights deal for Arrowhead field

According to a report from Terry Lefton of the Sports Business Journal and Pro Football Talk, the Chiefs were close to selling the naming rights to the field at Arrowhead Stadium to GEHA – the Government Employees Health Association.

The Chiefs quickly put out a statement that denied that report and stated that no field naming rights deal will be in place in 2020.

Last summer, GEHA signed a partnership with the Chiefs and quarterback Patrick Mahomes. They also sponsored “The Franchise” series, which took fans behind the scenes of the 2019 season and run to Super Bowl LIV.

The Chiefs are one of just four teams in the NFL who play in a stadium with no sponsor, along with the Chicago Bears (Soldier Field), Green Bay Packers (Lambeau Field), and Cincinnati Bengals (Paul Brown Stadium).
