The resellers are asking for sky-high prices that rival the ones at the Chiefs’ own Arrowhead Stadium. Even Olympic gold medalist finds themselves waiting in line to secure highly sought-after live NFL tickets.

The game, which was announced on May 10, 2023, as one of two 2023 NFL Germany Games, will be held on Sunday, November 5 at Frankfurt Stadium, the home of Eintracht Frankfurt. Fans are incredibly excited to witness a highly anticipated showdown between the Super Bowl champions and the up-and-coming AFC contenders.

NFL reporter Ari Meirov shed light on the league’s efforts to expand internationally, saying: “They’re making international growth a major point of emphasis. A lot of work being done there behind the scenes.”

One of the disappointed fans who missed out on the tickets was none other than Samantha Quek, the Olympic Gold medalist, and avid Chiefs supporter. She took to Twitter to share her frustration with the long line and the sold-out game: “Last month my fella promised me a weekend in Germany to watch the Chiefs in Frankfurt……only to join the ticketing queue online this morning and find himself with more than 1.4 MILLION people in front of him.”

This enthusiasm was evident as all the tickets for the event were sold out in just 15 minutes after they became available at noon local time on June 27, 2023. But its not it. The Germans have one more opportunity.
