Facts

  • Seating capacity is 41,000.
  • Officially named Royals Stadium on April 10, 1973.
  • April 10, 1973 - Royals Stadium is inaugurated with 39,464 fans for a 12-1 win over Texas.
  • At 8,900 square feet, the Royals' new DXD is the largest high-definition video screen built to date. It surpasses the scoreboard at Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium, which previously exceeded the Miami Dolphins' NFL scoreboard in square footage.
  • The water spectacular is the largest privately funded fountain in the world.
  • In August 2008, one of the first elements of the renovated stadium -- the Dimension X Design (DXD) scoreboard -- was completed at a cost of $8.5 million.
  • Although this is one of major league baseball's oldest stadiums, Glass says he has no interest in a proposal to build a baseball facility in Downtown Kansas City, Mo.
  • Kauffman Stadium features a 322-foot wide water spectacular.
  • The 105-foot tall, 85-foot wide DXD will be called "Crown Vision Board" to keep alive the tradition of the 35-year-old "low-tech" scoreboard that was state-of-the-art when it debuted.
  • Royals owner and Wal-Mart executive David Glass says he has no interest in having the proposed rolling roof at Arrowhead Stadium built for use at his adjacent Kauffman Stadium. He's a "purest" who believes baseball should be play outdoors.
  • The total renovation of Kauffman Stadium was completed on April 3, 2009, a week ahead of the Royals home opening game April 10, 2009 and a year ahead of the contract deadline for completion.
  • The facility was officially re-named in honor of Ewing M. Kauffman in a ceremony at the stadium on July 2, 1993.
  • Glass is negotiating with Jackson County Sports Complex officials on a bond package for renovation which could be submitted to county voters in April 2006.
