Game Day Tips From A Pro!


Well it’s back!

Yes the greatest and loudest NFL stadium in the NFL is truly that once more.

Diehard Chiefs fans who are not just there out of loyalty, but there out of a desire to have the time of their lives.

With a few tips from your Arrowhead Adventurer, your day at Arrowhead can be better than you ever imagined.

1. Get there early. You cannot get to the stadium to early. Get there at 9am. Earlier, you might have to talk you way in. It’s worth it.

2. Tailgating does not have to be complicated. If you had a long drive and woke up early, think about simply picking up some of the best BBQ in the world. Opinions vary, but if it is in KC, its likely to be good. Most places open up at 9am on game day.  Bring two chairs and a small table if you feel like it and your ready for the best tailgating in the world.

3. Stroll around. Introduce yourself. Talk some Chiefs talk with people that want to hear what you have to say. Face it, your lunch crew might be ready for a different topic. These people always welcome it.

4. Bring a football and throw it around if you like to do such things. Play catch with your neighbors. Play catch with your friends. If you don’t or can’t toss a football bring one anyway and watch your fellow tailgaters play catch with it.

5. Bring rain gear. No matter how slim the chance of rain is, at least bring one of those little cheap dollar ponchos. They are priceless when that unpredicted shower finds you, and they work surprisingly well.

6. Walk around the inside an hour or so before the game. Even if you don’t have a lower level seat, you can still wander down to the field before the game starts. Act like you belong there and you will.

7. Introduce yourself to your Arrowhead neighbors when you find your seat and resume the Chiefs talk you left on the parking lot.

8. Put your hand over your heart during the National Anthem. Watch for a possible fly over during. Sing along and say home of the “CHIEEEFS” at the appropriate time.

9. Keep your eyes on the jumbo tron and be ready to scream and yell and wave should you appear.

10. Enjoy the game, but do not leave early. Don’t. You don’t leave church early and you don’t leave a Kansas City Chiefs game early.

That’s what I have today. We have almost a month layoff before Arrowhead opens her gates again, plenty of time to plan.

See you there!

    That just got me pumped! Im driving up from Ft Worth TX for the Colts game. Ive been 2 other times, both victories against Denver and SF!! My gf has no idea how awesome Arrowhead is…..even though ive beat it(not physically) into her head. And whats awesome is that my best friend is trying to come too, because he wants to experience the LOUDEST OUTDOOR STADIUM IN THE WORLD and hes a Redskins fan, and huge fan!! So if anyone else on here will be there, it would be cool to put some faces to the conversation we have on this awesome site. GO CHIEFS ! And thank you Arrowhead for being so AWESOME!

    • Aaron Martin

      I’ll be at that game to. Driving from Nashville, TN. I didn’t make it last year so I am ready to hear the fire back in that stadium.

      Jarad- Nice to see that I am not the only Chiefs fan that lives in FW! Do you know if there are any Chiefs bars down here where Chiefs fans gather to watch the games?

      • Jarad

        Dont know of any in Ft Worth. I think there is one in Dallas ,but id have to double check. My best friend bartends at Bostons off 35 and Western Center and he will always have the Chiefs on. Ive been trying to get more fans in there.

    10. Enjoy the game, but do not leave early. Don’t. You don’t leave church early and you don’t leave a Kansas City Chiefs game early.

    You made me laugh at this one. I have never left early even when they loose. Drive 4 hours and spend all that money just to leave early? If you are gonna do that stay at home imho. I do usually jump in the car and wait in line. The last time we were so far out it was pointless so we sat around for another hour chatting it up with our neighbors in the parking lot. Good times.

      Ha, an important lesson I learned from my tailgating bud Jeff .

  • Justin R Groth

    Do not under any circumstance go to the restroom if there is food on the BBQ. Especially if EVERYONE else in the group says hey we should pull the food and eat…

  • Justin R Groth

    Don’t play the kid with the washer game that looks like he is 12 and kicking all the drunk peoples buts taking all their money

  • Justin R Groth

    remember everyone in chief gear= friend but not all friends are in chief gear :(

    • Randy5k

      excellent additions!

    Number 10 is by far the most important part, I was there in house when the decibel record was broken, and the upper level was half full. Imagine what it could have been? 150 decibels? Ask the people that left and missed the pick 6.
