Chiefs to play Dolphins in Germany during 2023 NFL International Series
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - The Kansas City Chiefs have an opponent set for their trip to Germany this coming fall.
On Wednesday, the National Football League and the Chiefs announced that Kansas City would take on the Miami Dolphins on November 5. The game is scheduled to be played in Frankfurt at Waldstadion, aka Deutsche Bank Park, and is one of five international games this season. It will kick off at 8:30 a.m. CT during Week 9 of the 2023 NFL season.
“We are thrilled to be headed to Frankfurt this fall to play the Dolphins,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. “The Chiefs have a long history of helping to grow the game of football around the world, and we have been eagerly anticipating our chance to play in Germany.

We look forward to bringing Chiefs Kingdom to Germany and to sharing the game with our fans in Europe.”
It will be the first Chiefs game in Europe since Kansas City defeated the Detroit Lions, 45-10 on Nov. 1, 2015. In 2019, the Chiefs defeated the Los Angeles Chargers, 24-17 in Mexico City a year after a game with the Los Angeles Rams was moved back to the U.S. due to poor field conditions.
