They weren’t too shabby on the field either. The national media is obsessed with box office sales for the latest movie openings. Yet most of those grosses are dwarfed by entertainment sales for things like, oh, THE CHIEFS!
This past Sunday for example, the reported attendance was 76,416. You do the math.
Ticket prices ranged from $76 to $91. So let’s say the average price was $83. At that rate Chiefs ticket sales may have amounted to as much as $6,342,500.-.
Now let’s look at the parking.
If Arrowhead’s 19,000-plus parking spaces filled up at $27 a pop, that could make for another income stream of around half a million bucks.
At an average per person sale of $7 – and I suspect that’s way low – that’s at least another half a million dollars.
So let’s see, that comes to about $7,342,500.
Then of course there’s the hefty network TV money flowing into those Dallas based coffers of the Hunt Family.
To my thinking, the Chiefs probably grossed as much—OR MORE—than the DON JON movie did for its entire three day national opening weekend on 2,422 north American screens.
Namely $9 million.
Of course those are estimated grosses and both entities have huge expenses against them.
Nevertheless all I can say is Hail to the Hunt$ — and their Chief$.
