Chiefs Upgrade a Tradition

Chiefs give their Drum Deck Tradition a facelift.

The KC Chiefs have given their Drum tradition a big boost this year, creating a permanent spot for the Drum prominently among the people. Love the long-standing tradition and the showcase of the long history in the video. While a lot of teams have been creating these traditions in recent years, the Chiefs have one that dates back to the 1970’s.

Ahead of every game, the Chiefs have a drum ceremony as the fans find their seats. It’s a way to get the crowd loud and engaged in the game. Typically the Chiefs bring in celebrities, members of the community or former players to pound on the drum. Before last season’s AFC championship game, they even had Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt out to lead the pregame ritual.

Typically the drum was placed on the field level, but with the new upgrades it will permanently have a place in the upper deck.

Fans who sit in the upper deck will get to see the pregame ritual up close and personal instead of having to watch it take place on the field below. Having a permanent location for the drum, directly beneath the towering video board, should also help bring some attention to the pregame ritual. (From ChiefsWire)

Of course you once you upgrade you need to keep filling the celebrity spot with stars, like the across-the-parking-lot star Whit Merrifield from the Royals.
