A fan’s guide to Arrowhead Stadium

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City captains are probably hoping this Sunday’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders will be like their last.

It was the only time in about two months when their offense looked normal with a 41-14 loss to longtime AFC West rivals last month.

But the often-rated coach Andy Reid has stuck in a neutral position this season. The Chiefs have topped 22 points only once since mid-October.

“You have to remember, the other team is playing,” Reid said. You don’t do that with air. You have to go out and do it every day.”

The captain (8-4) won five games in a row to take a one-game lead against the Chargers and a two-match lead for the Broncos and Raiders (6-6) as they seek their sixth consecutive AFC West championship. But their winning streak has been fueled by their surprisingly stingy defence, who have held off the last three-quarters of their opponents by less than 10 points.

So how can the Chiefs of Defense shoot back? Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes said it was all the basics.

If you’re planning to join the Chiefs vs. Raiders this Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium, make sure you’ve covered all the basics too. Here’s what fans need to know:

Ticket

If you’re still looking for tickets, there are still plenty of tickets left. You can buy tickets online or on a third-party website like Tickets for Less or SeatGeek.

But be prepared to pay a hefty price. Even the cheapest seats on the third level cost around $150 a ticket on Ticketmaster while those on the lower tier cost $450-500.

All Chiefs games are mobile only. The team encourages fans to add tickets to their mobile wallets for easier gate entry.

In the morning, it will be quite cold, with temperatures around 40s. Remember to take your coat. But for a start, we’ll be entering the low 50s for some good fall football weather.

Into the second half, Kansas City will enter the upper 50s in a fine afternoon. Make sure you don’t miss the amazing sunset on Sunday night.

Go through the gate

All stadium gates open at 10 a.m. Sunday, about two hours before the game begins.

Speaking of things not allowed, things like food, weapons, noise machines, laser pointers, and fireworks are prohibited at Arrowhead.

Fans are still allowed to bring water bottles, blankets, umbrellas, signs and sealed flags. See Full list of prohibited and allowed items.

Masks are not required

Now then Kansas City’s Mask Quest Has Expired, masks are no longer required in indoor spaces at Arrowhead Stadium, like pro shops, club level and more.

The captains are still encouraging those who are not fully vaccinated to wear masks at the stadium. The team also said that unvaccinated staff members will be instructed to wear masks.

No cash allowed

The Chiefs went completely cashless last season, and that will continue into the future.

All franchise counters and retail locations do not accept cash. Traditional credit and debit card options are still available, and payments are also accepted with mobile wallets like Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay.

Chief Spirit

Kansas City native rapper and Tech N9ne will draw lively crowds this week on the GEHA Drum Deck. The Strange Music co-founder has sold more than two million albums, but most fans of Chiefs will certainly recognize his hit “Red Kingdom.”

Country artist Kameron Marlowe will bring a taste of Nashville to Arrowhead when he sings the national anthem on Sunday. The Kansas National Guard will show the colors of the nation, followed by a flyover of four T-38s from Vance Air Force Base in Oklahoma.

This week’s Spiritual Leader Tony DiPardo will be Blue Valley Northwest soccer coach Clint Rider, Eric Driskell High School Coach of the Year.

Then, at halftime, fans can watch high school football celebrations for the Missouri State Champion and Kansas High School.
