The noise level at Arrowhead is loud. The height decibels it has reached is 142.2. That was in 2014 against the New England Patriots. In 1990, the crowd was told that further noise would cost the Chiefs a timeout. I can agree with that, as the crowd will get loud. It is supporting the home team.


Wouldn’t having a rolling roof covering the stadium be nice? That would be a great idea so Kansas City could host the Super Bowl 2015.

That roof would be shared with the KC Royals next door.

Two bonds were put in front of the voters, and one passed. That one was for $850 million for both stadiums.

The second one was for the roof, and that didn’t pass. So, no Super Bowl will be played there. The stadium rebuild started in 2007 and ended in 2010 for both stadiums.

Here are some photos I took


This stadium is impressive from the outside and inside, holding nearly 80,000 people. It is loud. The bathrooms could use some upgrades, but that is just my opinion. They had plenty of food options, but I felt it was overpriced. But that is what it is at all sporting events.
