Chiefs giving free beer to fans making trip to London

Friday October 23rd, 2015

The NFL is broadcasting games from London for the next two weeks with the Bills and Jaguars facing off at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, and the Chiefs taking on the Lions the following week.

Kansas City is a long way from London, so to thank fans for their support the Chiefs have rented out a bar and will be giving away free beer on the Friday afternoon before the game for a few hours, team president Mark Donovan told ESPN.

"The idea is if you’re coming to London, whether you came in on a train from Manchester where you live or whether you came over on a flight or whether you came in from Germany because it’s easier to get to London than Kansas City, you came to support the Chiefs and we want to buy you a beer."

NFL fans in London can head to The Admiralty in Trafalgar Square with their game tickets to grab a drink on the Chiefs, 

Many Kansas City season ticket holders were upset when they discovered that the team would be losing a home game to travel abroad, but the Chiefs say they expect about 800 fans to make the trip across the pond for the game.
