The ESPN network will feature Kansas City Chiefs fans, October 2, during the Monday Night Football Countdown in a special tailgating hour.
Kansas City Chiefs fans are not only the loudest fans in the country, but some of the best tailgaters a sports team has to offer. For that, their love for the players and the game, Kansas City is getting recognition. ESPN will host a tailgating hour just before kick off during its Monday Night Countdown, October 2.
The Chiefs are scheduled to play the Washington Red Skins and as fans tailgate for the game, personalities from ESPN will also be in attendance.
So we decided that as great as the atmosphere is inside of Arrowhead, when we go on the air and its 5 o’clock local time and the game doesn’t kick off until 7:30, let’s be where a little more of the action is to start the show and do some special stuff around that and get some of the Kansas City fans involved instead of being inside an empty stadium,” Seth Markman, ESPN’s Senior Coordinating Producer
Details as to what will actually take place during the special hour have not been finalize. However, if you want to be part of the action, the sports network will set up in Lot D with five of its hosts interacting with Chiefs fans in the parking lot.
This tailgating hour is just one of four ESPN will host during the NFL season. The Kansas City Chiefs will be featured twice, October 2 and Oct 30, with Green Bay and Seattle’s fans getting their tailgating hour later in the year.
Kick off for Monday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Washington Red Skins will be at 7:30 p.m., CDT.
Currently, the Kansas City Chiefs hold a 3-0 record, defeating the Los Angeles Chargers last Sunday 24-10.
