Kansas City Chiefs partner with Hallmark for upcoming holiday movie

There's more romance brewing among the Kansas City Chiefs, and no, it's not about singer Taylor Swift and her tight-end boyfriend, Travis Kelce. 

Hallmark Media announced it is teaming up with the NFL team and Skydance Sports for an upcoming holiday movie titled, "Holiday Touchdown: A Chiefs Love Story."

The network announced the movie will begin production in July and will be filmed in Kansas City, Missouri, including famous landmarks such as the GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, which would be the first time the stadium has been used as a filming location in a Hallmark movie.

The movie will tell the story of a woman's quest to win the team's "Fan of the Year" contest, but she falls in love with the man in charge of evaluating contestants. She then runs into trouble when her grandfather's Chief's good-luck hat goes missing, leaving her to hope for some Christmas magic.
