If you had to guess where the New Arrowhead Stadium should rank among the NFL’s 31 stadiums? Fifth? Maybe eighth? Most Kansas City Chiefs fans would agree it shouldn’t fall out of the top 10. Well, according to NFP, there are twelve stadiums that are better than Arrowhead.
13. New Arrowhead Stadium (Kansas City Chiefs)
Seating Capacity: 81,425
Playing Surface: Grass
Chiefs fans, I’m going to be honest with you. I’ve never been to a game at Arrowhead and know very little about the stadium. I put you guys in the 13 spot because you just dumped $375 million into renovations and you’re regarded as some of the best fans in the league.
Had I actually been to a game at Arrowhead, I have a feeling I’d be rating this place a lot higher.
Yes, if you go to a game next season, there is no doubt in my mind that Arrowhead will jump at least five spots. The more important note here should be that anyone making a list this extensive should have had to at least seen half the stadiums, not 13 (only 10 for actual NFL games).
Especially when you factor in that the Chiefs basically have a new stadium that was able to hold onto the old school feel and still owns the best tailgating in the country, it’s hard to stamp Arrowhead with anything but a top 10 grade.
