A Guide for Guests with Disabilities or Needing Special Assistance
Welcome to the New Arrowhead Stadium!
2010 marks the completion of the renovations and improvements to Arrowhead, making it one of the most exciting and fan-friendly stadiums to enjoy a great game day experience. As part of the renovation process, we have made it a priority to address the concerns of our guests who have disabilities or who need special assistance. Below is a list of services and amenities designed to address the requirements of these fans. If for any reason you require additional assistance or have any questions regarding the listed services and amenities, please do not hesitate to call 816-920-4237.
PARKING & TRANSPORTATION - Click here to view/download ADA Map (PDF)
Parking is available in the front of Lots B, C, D, F, G, H, and M. The appropriate state-issued hang tag or license plate is required and strictly enforced. If you have a hang tag we ask that you display it in a visible location to help the parking staff direct you to the designated parking areas. In addition, the person to whom the disabled tag was issued must be in the vehicle and may be asked to present a state disabled registration card. Accessible parking cannot be purchased in advance and guests will pay the cash parking rate. These areas will be filled on a first-come, first- served basis.
The Chiefs have provided several passenger carts that tour the parking lots and offer assistance to the stadium gates on a first-come, first-served basis. Carts are also available at the bus drop off located at the southeast corner of Kauffman Stadium. Cart assistance begins 2 rd quarter and continues for 30 minutes after the game concludes. Call 816-920-4237 for assistance.
Kincaid Coach offers the safest, most affordable transportation to and from Arrowhead Stadium for all Chiefs' home games. Drop your car at one of our (12) convenient locations and hop aboard. We'll take you quickly and safely to Arrowhead Stadium and bring you back shortly after the game.
If you are unable to walk long distances or cannot park in an accessible parking space, traffic personnel will assist you in being dropped off as close to the stadium as possible.
