Kansas City, Mo.
The fun begins with the Red Friday event in Kansas City and St. Louis on Friday, September 9.
Red Friday usually takes place before the Chiefs’ first home game of the season. Since the Chiefs play first in Arizona, then have a Thursday night game, the committee decided to hold the annual event on the Friday before the team’s first game of the season.
As part of the fun, thousands of special Red Friday flags will be sold to fans.
Flag sales begin at 6 a.m. Friday morning at McDonald’s restaurants in KC, Lawrence and St. Joseph, as well as Kansas City area Hy-Vee stores.
The 2022 design has a red background with a yellow border and “Kingdom Head” and the Arrowhead logo underneath. Each flag will be sold for a $5 donation.
Proceeds raised through the profit of the sale of the flag Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City.
Over the past nine years, Red Friday sales have raised $3.7 million to help Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City continue their mission. This organization works to reduce the burden of childhood illness on sick children and their families.
Fans who live outside the Kansas City metro, or cannot get to the sales location can order it Red Friday flag online for $10, plus shipping.
