(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Cross a big Chiefs training camp to-do off the list.

The Missouri Western State University Board of Governors formally approved a contract Tuesday with the Kansas City Chiefs to keep the team's training camp in St. Joe this year.

Western and the Chiefs reached an agreement in January that will bring camp back to St. Joe for a ninth year. The deal also includes an option for a one year extension for 2019.

"We are quite proud of our relationship with the Chiefs, and we're pleased to welcome them back this summer, and we hope for many years to come," said Missouri Western President Dr. Robert Vartabedian.

The Chiefs have held training camp at Western since 2010.

"We are pleased that the Missouri Western Board of Governors approved the contract agreement that we reached early in 2018," Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. "The entire Missouri Western community and the city of St. Joseph have fully embraced Chiefs training camp and have provided our team with tremendous facilities and service for almost a full decade. We are very excited for the upcoming season and know our fans are going to enjoy getting their first glimpse of the 2018 team on the campus of Missouri Western this summer."

The Chiefs expect to announce this year's training camp schedule next month.
