They actually mutually support one another.

Without the KS sides $$$ for seats, corporate sponsorships etc. KCMO would have a tough time supporting it's various venues.

The only reason there haven't been blackouts of Chiefs games in recent years is that Sprint steps up and buys up the loose tickets and gives them out to their workers for free. Since I have friends that work there this is how I get to see a free Chiefs game every year.

Then there is the SPRINT Center and so on and so forth.
