Outside the stadium, fans are greeted with the Founder’s Plaza, an area honoring Lamar Hunt, the franchise’s founder. The area features a statue of Hunt and serves as a tribute to the original AFL teams. Personalized bricks are installed in the walkways to honor the Chiefs’ most loyal fans.
Not far from the Founder’s Plaza was a tent featuring a six feet by seven feet Arrowhead Stadium cake assembled by ultimate cake artist Mike Elder. Fans were able to watch Mike put the finishing touches on his masterpiece before devouring it prior to kickoff.
