The NFL announced Thursday that the Chiefs’ Nov. 1 game in London against the Detroit Lions will be a 8:30 a.m. kickoff.
Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt told The Star in November that he hopes his team’s decision to surrender their home-field advantage against Detroit will take care of that obligation for the next four or five years as it pursues a Super Bowl bid.
“Let me just say directly — I understand why our fans are frustrated,” Hunt said in November. “Frankly, I don’t expect them to be happy about it ... they’re so passionate, and they want to spend their Sunday afternoons cheering the team on.
Never miss a local story.
“We’re going to talk about ideas about things that we can do for them to help compensate.”
