Chiefs Unveil Renderings For $800 Million Renovation Of Arrowhead Stadium

The Kansas City Chiefs unveiled renderings of their newly planned renovations to Arrowhead Stadium on Wednesday.

The team held a press conference Wednesday as they presented their initial renovation concepts for the stadium.

The Chiefs’ vision includes a “fan activation zone.” That will be a covered entertainment space where Kauffman currently stands. There will also be new suites in the end zone; new, larger video boards; completion of the upper concourse with a connecting bridge; and other enhancements.

“For more than five decades, Arrowhead Stadium has been the home of the Chiefs, and a home for so many of our fans,” Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said. “This is where generations of Chiefs fans fell in love with the game. History has been written here, legends have been born here, and lifelong memories have been made within these walls. The stadium has become part of the fabric of our community. Today we are excited to share our plans to extend the life of Arrowhead for future generations of Chiefs fans.”


According to the Kansas City Star, the team estimates the full cost of the renovations will be $800 million. The Chiefs will cover $300 million plus any overruns, while the rest would largely come from taxpayers in Jackson County.
