Kansas City Chiefs adding new 'Drum Deck' to Arrowhead Stadium in 2019

Chiefs Kingdom is getting an upgrade in 2019.

The Kansas City Chiefs team Twitter account announced a new addition to Arrowhead Stadium on Thursday morning. The new feature is a special section in the upper deck called the "Drum Deck." The "Drum Deck" will be located around section 335 and will house the famous drum that is brought to the field for the Chiefs' pregame pump-up ceremonies at Arrowhead.

Some notable Kansas City stars have pounded the Chiefs' drum for pregame ceremonies in years past. Former Chiefs RB Christian Okoye banged the drum before K.C.'s 41-14 win over the New England Patriots on "Monday Night Football" in 2014, and current Kansas City Royals standouts Salvador Perez and Alex Gordon have taken their turns pounding the drum as well.

The creation of the "Drum Deck" comes just as the Chiefs are celebrating their 60th season, starting with their Dallas Texans days in the American Football League in the early 1960s.



The previous element was an advertisement.
