Chiefs gear "flying off the shelves" amid historic playoff run

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Kansas City Chiefs fans are celebrating a historic playoff win Saturday over the Indianapolis Colts, 31-13. For some, that means sporting some fresh Chiefs red.

"It’s flying off the shelves,” Lacie Fike, store manager of Rally House in Topeka said. “We can't keep it in stock."

David Petefish has been a Chiefs season ticket holder for 15 years and went to Rally House on Sunday to stock up on apparel for his family.

"My daughter needs a sweatshirt,” Petefish said. “We realized the dog didn't have any Chiefs gear to wear, so we're out getting him a little Chiefs shirt."

Petefish had tickets to Saturday’s game against the Colts, but sold them to pay for tickets to the AFC Championship.

"I had enough faith in them,” Petefish said of the Chiefs. “I was hoping that I could sell my tickets. I did sell them, and I made enough so that way, I can go to the next game on the house."

Fike said her store is helping fans like Petefish prepare for another chilly day at Arrowhead.

"Everyone's in after coats, sweatshirts, scarves, beanies, things like that to keep them warm,” Fike said. "We've been trying to stock up on all the heavy-weight gear with the upcoming cold game, it sounds like again."

Weather aside, fans are ready to rock their newest gear as the Chiefs move one step closer to the ultimate goal.

"We just haven't had this big of a win, and we're ready to go, and hopefully go all the way to the Super Bowl,” Petefish said.

The Chiefs will face the New England Patriots at Arrowhead in the AFC Championship on Sunday, Jan. 20. at 5:40 p.m.

The winner of that game punches their ticket to the Super Bowl.
