The Kansas City Chiefs will have one more night practice before training camp ends.
Except it will be in Kansas City at the New Arrowhead.
On Wednesday, Aug. 25, the New Arrowhead will open its doors to the public at 6:15 p.m. for the 7:15 p.m. practice.
For many of you who couldn't make it up to St. Joe, this is an opportunity to see the team practicing before you see them on TV during the regular season.
For those who made it up to St. Joe, this is an opportunity to once again see the team.
For everyone, this is an opportunity to see the New Arrowhead in all its glory (if you didn't see it at the Manchester United game). Many of you have seen pictures I took while touring the New Arrowhead a few weeks ago. Now you can see it in person.
The Chiefs will also open the Hall of Honor in a private ceremony -- no fans -- but I'll be there to give you the lowdown.
(ICTChief posted many of the details here.)
For a reminder, here are a few posts we've done on the renovated stadium:
So the first few photos here are from the suite I sat in at that game. The next set of photos come from what the Chiefs are calling their signature suites appropriately named for players like Len Dawson, Jan Stenerud and Bobby Bell. I've also got a shot of the penthouse suite in there.
Some of the pictures are from the lower level (like the one above), some are from club level and others are from upper level. There's now an outdoor standing area on the upper deck. It's pretty cool. There's a bar and an open area where you can see the field.
Yes, even the walls are interesting.
Along one of the lower level concourses, the Chiefs take you on a tour of history with famous players, coaches and moments throughout the history of the club.
I snapped a bunch of photos of the walls after the jump. My favorite? DT sacking Steve Young.
Some of the renovations were to fancy up those suites I'll never sit in and some were for the rest of us like more concessions, bathrooms, bigger concourses and the Hall of Honor.
Chiefs owner Clark Hunt was our tour guide and you could tell he was proud because, as he said, "Lamar would have loved it."
