|Explore stadiums of Sporting Kansas City and the Kansas City Chiefs during 50 Plus day trip|
Go behind the scenes at two premier sporting venues during a mid-March day trip being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
This trip, called Stadium Tours, will start with Sporting Park, home of the Sporting Kansas City soccer team. Participants can explore locker rooms, VIP spaces, and areas not generally open to the public. Find out about the technology that makes this spectacular stadium like none other. Head over to the Legends shopping area for lunch at Johnny Carino’s Italian Restaurant. Then take a guided tour of Arrowhead Stadium, longtime home of the Kansas City Chiefs. Visit the press box, club level, locker room, field, and the Chiefs Hall of Honor. As both stadiums are large, be sure to wear comfortable shoes for walking on the tours.
