Chiefs bring familiar restaurants, breweries to Arrowhead
Published: 10 Sep 2017
Kansas City Chiefs fans attending a game at Arrowhead Stadium this season will find several new food and beverage partners, including many based in the Kansas City area.
The Chiefs heavily revamped their concessions offerings this season and the list includes local barbecue restaurants such as Smoke Brewing Co. of Lee's Summit, Bue Springs-based Plowboys Barbecue and Belton's The Little Pig BBQ. Dickey's Barbecue Pit, which is a national chain based in Dallas, will be another familiar offering in Section 301, since it has five locations in the Kansas City area.
BRGR Kitchen + Bar set up shop in Section 102, featuring four burgers and other fare familiar to fans who have visited their locations in Prairie Village and Kansas City's Power & Light District.
Another new restaurant teaming up with the Chiefs this season is Chickie's & Pete's, a Philadelphia icon that serves crabfries, cheesesteak sandwiches and boneless chicken wings.
Arrowhead also added 13 new bar locations that will serve mixed drinks, wines, and draft and packaged beers, including some local craft beers that will be familiar to Kansas City fans.New areas to hang out inside the Arrowhead include The Huddle, which is an area sponsored by CommunityAmerica Credit Union in Section 123. There is also the new Locker Room Club which is an amenity for Field Box-ticket holders. It offers those fans access to the stadium's lower level where they can see the players enter and exit the locker room and conduct the postgame press conference.
Aside from food and beverage, Arrowhead has a new sound system that uses six RCF Dual 24-inch subwoofers to give fans a more balanced sound.
The Chiefs also will offer new technology called FreeD video, which gives fans a new way to watch video and replays through the Chiefs' mobile app. It shows volumetric images, which calibrate a series of 38 in-stadium cameras so the pixels are lined up in each space with each other, enabling fans to rotate their perspective. The Chiefs first home game is on Sept. 17 at noon against the Philadelphia Eagles. The team starts its 2017 season on the road at 7:30 p.m. Thursday against the New England Patriots.
