Arrowhead Stadium


Today, after over three decades of existence, Arrowhead Stadium remains one of the finest stadiums in the NFL. After spending several years playing at an aging Municipal Stadium it was time for a new stadium for both the Chiefs and the Kansas City Royals (MLB). Originally, in the mid 1960’s officials planned on building a single, multipurpose stadium. However the idea was scrapped. Kansas City officials then decided to build two stadiums, one for the Royals and one for the Chiefs. This idea also called for the world's first rolling stadium roof. In 1967 voters approved a plan to build two stadiums. Construction on the stadiums began soon after. However, the rolling roof for the stadiums was scrapped because of project delays.

After more than three years of construction, the stadium was completed in time for the start of the 1972 season. The facility was named Arrowhead Stadium. The Kansas City Chiefs played their first game at Arrowhead Stadium on August 12, 1972 against the St. Louis Cardinals. When the stadium opened it was way ahead of its time.

In other cities across the country, multipurpose facilities were being constructed. Over 70,000 red and gold seats in three tiers, enclosed the entire Astroturf playing surface in 1972. Since its opening, Arrowhead Stadium has underwent numerous improvements. In 1984, officials discussed adding a dome to Arrowhead Stadium. However, the idea was scrapped because of project costs. In 1991 a JumboTron was added above the upper deck rim past the south endzone. In 1994, the Astroturf was removed and replaced with grass, giving Arrowhead Stadium its modern day look. Arrowhead Stadium has several amenities, including the Arrowhead Club, over 10,000 club seats, and 80 luxury suites. Arrowhead Stadium continues to sell out every game, and is one of the NFL’s loudest stadiums. Currently, the Chiefs are trying to lobby to get funds approved for numerous upgrades at Arrowhead Stadium.
