The Kansas City Chiefs' Arrowhead Stadium was nominated for Sports Facility of the Year a few months ago but they learned on Wednesday night they would not be the winners.

Instead, Street & Smith's Sports Business Journal and Sports Business Daily announced at the 2011 Sports Business Awards that the top stadium award goes to the Twinkies' Target Field in Minnesota.

The other candidates were Amway Arena (home of the Orlando Magic), Consol Energy Center (home of the Pittsburgh Penguins), New Meadowlands Stadium (home of the New York Giants/Jets) and Red Bull Arena (home of the New York Red Bulls).

What I find interesting is that the rest of the candidates are new, unlike Arrowhead, which just got a facelift. I also noticed while attending the 2011 Hall of Fame ceremony in Dallas that other folks around the league are impressed with Arrowhead's in-house Hall of Fame.
