Complete now. I will update if/when there are changes due to Corona or the new CBA.

Updated with schedule.

I like the bye week in week 10 (Ideal timing in my opinion) and the two home games against not necessarily the strongest teams to close out the season. I don't like 5 games kicking off late  .. because that means I'll have virtually no chance to watch over here in good old Europe.

Yep. We probably need to get used to that, but i'll take that if we keep on rolling. It just bothers me, that i probably can't watch the opening game. :(

It's weird times to have to cancel a bunch of events from this list knowing they didn't (or will not) take place. Trying to keep the calendar updated to the best of my knowledge, but if you know something else, please let me know. I think I somewhere read about the dates of Chiefs' Training Camp, but can't find it anymore.
