Chiefs to Add Hall of Fame to Stadium Renovations

^AP-KSM--Arrowhead Makeover,<

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The home of the Kansas City Chiefs is
getting a 375 million dollar facelift.
HOK Sports is designing the renovation, and the company says the
stadium will have a Chiefs Hall of Fame open 365 days a year.
The stadium will expand by about 500,000 square feet, with about
50 percent more concessions locations and 80 percent more
bathrooms.
Construction will take about three years and include a new
training facility with a 100-yard indoor field and a separate
building for coaches and front office executives.
Voters in Jackson County passed a sales tax 15 months ago to pay
for renovation at Arrowhead and the Kansas City Royals' Kauffman
Stadium.
Arrowhead seats 79,541 and is perpetually sold out. It's the
third-largest stadium in the NFL and in the fifth-smallest market.
----
To meet requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act,
Arrowhead will lose about 2,400 seats with the renovation.
