This should be an easy Christmas present.
The NFL has advised the Chiefs to prepare for the playoffs by selling postseason tickets for a potential AFC Wild Card or Divisional round game.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Dec. 23 and can be bought online at Chiefs.com.
They can also be purchased by phone at 800-745-3000 or at the Arrowhead Stadium ticket office on the northwest side of the stadium.
Residents of Jackson County will have a priority presale to buy tickets beginning at 10 a.m. on Dec. 21. Those tickets must be purchased in person at the Arrowhead ticket office and fans must have a form of identification that includes a photo and a paid personal 2015 Jackson County property tax receipt.
Spouses residing at the same address will be allowed to buy tickets, even if the property tax receipt is in the other spouse’s name.
No phone orders will be taken for the presale event.
Delivery of tickets to all playoff home games will be available only electronically using the Chiefs’ ready-to-print policy, which will be reduced from 30 days before the game to one week before any playoff game.
All tickets will reflect AFC Divisional round pricing. If the Chiefs are host to a Wild Card game instead, the difference in ticket price will be refunded back to the method of payment. If no game is played at Arrowhead, fans will be refunded.
The Chiefs will be in the Divisional round if they’re one of the top two seeds in the AFC playoffs. They’ll be in the Wild Card round if they’re seeded 3 through 6.
The Wild Card round is Jan. 7-8, 2017. The Divisional round is Jan. 14-15. The date and kickoff times are established a week in advance.
The Chiefs last played host to a playoff game on Jan. 9, 2011 when they lost 30-7 to the Baltimore Ravens.
