Arrowhead Stadium has been the home of the Kansas City Chiefs professional football team since it opened in 1972. It is adjacent to Kauffman Stadium, where the Kansas City Royals professional baseball team plays. (In fact, there is even a private underground service tunnel between the two.)

Football fans can tour the roughly 80,000-seat Arrowhead Stadium in a number of ways. Public, guided tours last 90 minutes and take visitors through the press box, the CommunityAmerica Club Level, the locker room, the field and the Chiefs Hall of Honor Presented by Spectrum. Public tours are offered on Fridays at 2 or 4 p.m. and on Saturdays at 11 a.m. or 1 p.m., and tickets cost $30 for adults and $25 for kids. If you’re looking for a more exclusive experience, consider a private guided tour (which visits the same areas of the stadium, but in a one-on-one setting) or a game day tour, which includes a 60-minute walk through the press box and the Chiefs Hall of Honor Presented by Spectrum, followed by 20 minutes on the sidelines of the field during the pregame activities. To schedule a tour, visit the Chiefs website.    

Whether they took a tour or simply attended a Kansas City Chiefs game, recent visitors of the stadium gave it mostly high praise. Some noted that children were especially thrilled to see behind-the-scenes areas of the stadium, but adults said they had a great time as well. If you plan to visit the stadium for a game, past patrons warn it is best to arrive early since parking fills up early and can become chaotic, and traffic getting into the stadium can get heavy. Those watching a game should also note that the stadium accepts only clear handbags and very small clutches, so be sure to take these restrictions into account before you head out.
