Kansas City Chiefs Football Team


The Kansas City Chiefs football team and Arrowhead Stadium consistently rank in the top five of the best tailgating stadiums in the country. The fans at Arrowhead Stadium are known to be the nicest and loudest fans in the NFL, and with all the meat packing plants, breweries and great Kansas City BBQ, you are bound to have fun tailgating here.

Although every home game is celebrated, two rivals bring out the best in the fans of the Chiefs. When the Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos visit Arrowhead, the tailgating parties are over the top even for this stadium.


You have a choice of 26,000 parking spaces at the Kansas City Chiefs football team stadium and it will cost you $27 for a car and $65 for RV, Limo and bus. On your way to the stadium, you can reduce your wait time and the long traffic by taking Manchester via I-70 or Stadium Drive via I-435 instead of waiting on I-70 and taking Exit #9. The gates open three and a half hours before kick off and closes 90 minutes after the game. Once you arrive at the lot, the traffic staff will direct you to your designated lot.

  • Lot A, L and N are Cash Lots
  • Lot B, C, D, F, G and J are the Red Lots
  • Lot E, H and M are Gold Reserve Lots

Grass parking is available on a first come first served basis so if you want these spots you have to come very, very early. As is the case, at every home game, the stadium lot will be full and you can find parking outside of the stadium perimeter on street parking, private lots and homeowners. People that live in the area charge anywhere between five to 10 dollars.

Lot Rules

If you follow the rules set by the Kansas City Chiefs football team regarding tailgating on their lots you will have a great time.

  • A parking pass does not guarantee a specific spot.
  • Parking spaces are for vehicles only and one vehicle per space.
  • If you have a trailer, you must pay for an additional space and you must park in the grass.
  • Tailgating is only allowed in front and back of your vehicle and you must keep roadways, aisles and any empty space clear.
  • If you violate any of these rules, stadium personnel will ask you to leave and you can lose your season parking pass privileges.

Arrowhead Stadium encourages tailgating and the large crowds consistently follow the rules and keep the party atmosphere.

Red Friday

During the regular season, the Chief fans celebrate Red Friday. Throughout the city, work places hold events, which are essentially tailgate parties, on Fridays before the games. They hold contests to determine which office has the best team spirit for revving up the fans for the game on Sunday.

One of the reasons the stadium of Kansas City Chiefs football team is voted one of the best tailgating stadiums repeatedly is the food. During the preseason, the Chief fans bring regular fare such as burgers, hot dogs and other sausages but when the regular season arrives, they make some of the best tailgate foods anywhere, such as:

  • The best Kansas City BBQ
  • Ribs, brisket
  • Individual rubs, spices and sauces which is what differentiates Arrowhead tailgaters
  • Lobster and salmon

This is just a small sampling available at the stadium. Another specialty is a chicken rollup made with flattened chicken breast stuffed with seasonings, jalapenos and cheese wrapped in bacon. As with all tailgating parties make sure you have the essentials before you head to the stadium such as a cooler with ice, drinks, condiments and utensils.


Games are part of the fun at Kansas City Chiefs football team tailgating until the game begins. Some of the favorite games to pass the time until kickoff include:

  • Ladder toss
  • Cornhole
  • Washer pitch
  • Football toss
  • Beer pong
  • Dizzy bat

When you play your games make sure to not throw balls or other items that can land in someone’s BBQ and always respect your tailgaters especially if you are wearing the jersey of the other team.
