The University of Kansas is still underway with construction renovations for the David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium, as a result, the KU football team will be heading to GEHA Feild and Children’s Mercy Park for their home games.

The Kansas Jayhawks will attend all six home games at both professional sports stadiums for their 2024 season. Four games will be played at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium and another two will be at Sporting Kansas City’s Children’s Mercy Park.

University of Kansas commencement ceremonies for 2024 and 2025 will still be held in Lawrence at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium, according to a release.

Its first game of the season will begin at Children’s Mercy Park where the Jayhawks will compete against Lindenwood University on Aug. 29. Following an away game, KU football will then face off against the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on Sept. 14.

KU’s first game at Arrowhead will see the Jayhawks against Texas Christian University on Sept. 28; the University of Houston on Oct. 19; Iowa State University on Nov. 9 followed by their last game at the Kanas City field against the University of Colorado, Boulder on Nov. 23.

“While we are disappointed we can’t play in Lawrence, ultimately, we want to create the best possible experience for all involved, and playing two games at Children’s Mercy Park and four games at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium allows us to do that,” Kansas Director of Athletics Travis Goff said in the release. “It has been a thrill to see construction begin in earnest in Lawrence on the Gateway District and David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium, and this decision allows that construction to continue on a necessary timeline while also benefiting the overall budget of the project and the 2024 fan experience.”

KU football fans can purchase a full six-game 2024 season ticket package beginning at $275 or a family zone opportunity for $200 per ticket.

“I’m confident our fans will be able to create a ‘home field’ that our players will be energized to play in,” Kansas Head Football Coach Lance Leipold said.
