About Arrowhead Stadium
Is it weird that Kansas City is in Missouri? Maybe. Is there anything weird about the venerable Arrowhead Stadium, one of the oldest and biggest venues in the NFL? Nope. It’s a storied stadium, filled with history, and despite its age, it’s still capable of offering a fantastic experience to fans of all ages.
The History of Arrowhead Stadium
Back in the Stone Age (you know, the 1960s), the Kansas City Chiefs were looking for a home of their own. Getting tired of sharing Municipal Stadium with the Kansas City Athletics (and then the Kansas City Royals, the team lobbied for a brand new sports complex to be built on the site of the aging Municipal Stadium. The result? The Truman Sports Complex was built, featuring not one but two stadiums — Kauffman Field for the Royals and Arrowhead Stadium for the Chiefs.
Arrowhead Stadium sports events are largely home games for the Chiefs. That being said, that’s not the only action this venue sees! There’s lots of college football played on Arrowhead Stadium’s gridiron, and it was likewise home to the Kansas City Wizards of Major League Soccer for over a decade.
What makes Arrowhead Stadium events so special?
There is a lot to appreciate about Arrowhead Stadium. This open-air venue has seating for more than 70,000 adoring fans, making it the sixth-largest in the NFL. Despite its age, the stadium is still loaded with modern amenities thanks to the extensive renovations it underwent in 2007.
Even before that, though, Arrowhead Stadium was legendary for another reason: how freaking loud it was. We’re talking crimes-against-humanity levels of volume, certified by the Guinness World Record folks at more than 142 decibels. In other words, Chiefs fans are loud enough to cause permanent hearing damage. It got so bad that John Elway complained to the ref one game, nearly charging the Chiefs with a timeout unless the crowd calmed down.
No matter how you slice it, Arrowhead Stadium events are going to be a blast. Sometimes literally. So grab some tickets and don’t forget the earplugs!
