Arrowhead Stadium placed 10th in USA Today's 10 Best Readers' Choice for Best NFL Stadium contest. Ranking No. 1 on the list, released on December 20, is Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wis.

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.”

  • On October 13, 2013, at a home game against the Oakland Raiders, Chiefs fans broke the Guinness World Record for loudest crowd roar at an outdoor stadium with 137.5 decibels.

That record was broken by the Seattle Seahawks fans at CenturyLink Field on December 2, 2013, at a home game against the New Orleans Saints with a roar of 137.6 decibels
