Arrowhead Stadium Reimagined | Renovation Concepts | Kansas City Chiefs -

For more than 50 years, Arrowhead Stadium has stood as an architectural masterpiece, serving as the epicenter of Chiefs Kingdom, the heartbeat of an entire fanbase. When it was built in 1972, the aesthetic footprint of mid-America was elevated with its construction. Its tradition of design and ingenuity have made it a cultural icon in the region and a destination for sports and entertainment fans worldwide.

It underwent a massive renovation in 2010 while many of its decades-old stadium counterparts were being deemed obsolete. The revitalization not only maintained the beautiful architectural styling of the original design, but also introduced new opportunities and avenues for the organization to offer programs that engage the community year-round.

As Jackson County voters are preparing to vote in the April 2 special election, the Chiefs are preparing to renovate Arrowhead Stadium into the future once again. This extensive renovation will ensure that the home of the four-time Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs – and the world-class fan experience the stadium offers – maintains its position for decades to come as one of the preeminent sports and entertainment destinations around the globe.

Starting with the grounds of the Truman Sports Complex, renovations will help elevate Kansas City's unique tailgating culture with improved parking and activation areas, while inside the stadium, there will be improvements across all three levels, offering an enhanced experience for every fan that walks into the stadium. The work ahead will propel the stadium into the future, while maintaining the history and mystique that is so special to so many.
