A Luxury 3 Floor Suite Inside Arrowhead Stadium. No, really!
Happy Red Friday, Kansas City! We hope you’re ready to watch the Chiefs take on the Las Vegas Raiders tomorrow! This game was originally scheduled for Sunday but was flexed to tomorrow, so don’t miss it.
I recently had the incredible opportunity to go on a private tour of Arrowhead Stadium. To say it was an awesome experience would be an understatement. It’s not every day you get to walk through the amazing history of the Chiefs…or see Patrick Mahomes’ jersey waiting for him.
Speaking of history, the Chiefs organization was founded in 1959 by Lamar Hunt, but under the name Dallas Texans. An original member of the American Football League (AFL), the team relocated to Kansas City in 1963, and that’s when they changed their name to Kansas City Chiefs. They won their first Super Bowl in 1970, defeating the Minnesota Vikings 23-7.
Arrowhead Stadium opened in 1972, and has a seating capacity of 76,416. The stadium is named after the Arrowhead water company, which was founded by, you guessed it…Lamar Hunt. Arrowhead Stadium is known for its loud crowd and, as of 2014, holds the record for the loudest stadium in the world at an impressive 142.2 decibels. The stadium has undergone several renovations and upgrades over the years, including the installation of a high-definition video board in 2010 and the addition of a 360-degree ribbon board in 2018.
One of the possibly least-talked about renovations over the years is the Hunt Family’s home away from home. Did you know they have a three-floor suite that overlooks the field below? That’s right…a three-floor suite! Inside Arrowhead! This luxurious space is complete with hardwoods, brick and marble finishes, beautiful wood trim and accents, and arched doorways throughout. I can’t imagine anything better than watching the Chiefs win in such comfort, but still within the incredible atmosphere that is Arrowhead Stadium!
So, who do you have winning tomorrow?! The Chiefs are currently sitting at 13-3, while the Raiders are 6-10. We have a lot of key players listed as Questionable which isn’t ideal. Leave your score predictions in the comments, then tune in to ABC or ESPN to watch the game Saturday at 3:30 CST! Go Chiefs!
