According to the newspaper, "Arrowhead Stadium is known around the league as being one of the loudest and most intense places to play. Before game action, the stadium's surrounding parking lots host wild tailgating parties, where Kansas City BBQ is always on the menu. Fans wear red and pack into the stadium's 70,000+ seats. Sell-outs are the norm."
The Kansas City Chiefs and St. Louis Cardinals played the inaugural game at Arrowhead Stadium on August 12, 1972.
At the time of its dedication in ’72, the legendary founder of the Chicago Bears, George Halas called Arrowhead, “the most revolutionary, futuristic, sports complex I have ever seen.” Hal Lebovitz, Sports Editor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer added, “It took courage to sell the citizens of Kansas City on the twin park plan. But they bought it because they want the best.”
