A Brief History of Arrowhead Stadium

By | September 22, 2010

Arrowhead Stadium is located in Kansas City, Missouri and is the biggest sports facility in terms of capacity in the State of Missouri. Currently, it is the fourth largest National Football League (NFL) stadium by seating capacity. It is home to the Kansas City Chiefs.

In 1967, voters approved a $102 million bond initiative to build stadiums known as the Truman Sports Complex. The complex consists of Arrowhead Stadium as well as Kauffman Stadium (home of the Kansas City Royals). Construction of Arrowhead Stadium began in 1968 and was completed in time for the 1972 season. During the first game at Arrowhead Stadium, the Chiefs defeated the then named St. Louis Cardinals 24-14.

The stadium has undergone several renovations. The most recent was completed in 2010 and cost approximately $375 million. The current seating capacity for the stadium is 49,451.

The stadium hosts many events, but the primary tenant is the Chiefs franchise. The Kansas City Chiefs are off to a terrific 2-0 start. The remainder of the 2010 season is as follows:
