Facts

  • In 1963, Lamar Hunt moved the Dallas Texans of the old American Football League to Kansas City, and they became the Chiefs.
  • Both the Blues and the Monarchs went out of existence in 1955 when the Philadelphia Athletics became the Kansas City Athletics. The A's stayed through the 1967 season, then moved to Oakland.
  • Official seating capacity was 17,489 when the facility opened in 1923. After numerous renovations the final seating capacity was 49,002 during the last Chiefs game.
  • The existing stadium was completely renovated for the A's in 1955. The upper grandstand was built, which brought the seating capacity to approximately 32,000.
