Set Current Location
Cradled in the arms of three major thoroughfares, this 18,000 seat center located downtown is one of the most popular spots to see a show in KC. After it was constructed, Elton John inaugurated the arena with a sold-out concert on October 13th, 2007. Since then, the Sprint Center has continued to host not just concerts, but sports events, Disney on Ice, professional bull riding and even Cirque du Soleil. The center's very own, 'College Basketball Experience' is another highlight. This is the NCAA version of the basketball hall of fame at the collegiate level and it features two-floors of college basketball memorabilia as well as exhibits about its history.
Construction on Arrowhead Stadium finished on August 12, 1972, and since then, the Kansas City Chiefs have had one of the best home records in the NFL. The stadium is equipped to handle nearly 80,000 spectators, and when the seats are that full, you can feel the energy in the air. In fact, the crowds at Arrowhead are among the loudest recorded in any outdoor sports venue - in other words, don't forget the earplugs at home.
This stadium is home to MLB's Royals, a team that entered the league in 1969 and won the World Series in 1985. Since that series, the team has not had much success, but has had several popular players, most notably, George Brett. The stadium opened in 1973 and was named after the team's founder, Ewing Kauffman. The seating capacity holds 27,000 spectators and one of the interesting features that surrounds the outfield is the "Waterfall Spectacular". The water falls from a high 322ft and it is one of the largest artificial waterfalls in the country.
Here at the Kansas Speedway, NASCAR, IHRA and ARCA fans revel in the roar of the motors around this 1.5 mile tri-oval track. It holds more than 72,000 spectators and comes equipped with a state-of-the-art SAFER (steel and foam energy reduction) barrier. This barrier is the longest in the NASCAR circuit and offers impenetrable protection to fans.
