Kansas City Chiefs fans will attempt to break Seattle Seahawks noise record?

You may recall earlier this season, the Seattle Seahawks attempted to break Guinness world record for loudest crowd roar in an outdoor sports stadium against the San Francisco 49ers.

They were successful, but now they may have competition as according to the Miami Herald, a group of Kansas City Chiefs fans are attempting to break the record set by Seattle fans just a few weeks back.

The group of fans have also been given assistance from the Chiefs organization, who has paid $7,500 dollars to fly-in a Guinness adjudicator.

While fans paid the $700 fee to expedite approval of the record attempt, a team spokesman confirmed that the franchise paid for an adjudicator from Guinness World Records to fly to Kansas City for the game. Rowton said that cost $7,500.

“We got a late start compared to Seattle. They had a four-month jump on us,” Rowton told The Associated Press. “But we’ve got support on all levels, even the players are behind this.”

Seahawks faithful were able to break the two year old record which was previously held by Turkish soccer club Galatasaray S.K, pushing the noise level to 136.6, similar to that of a sustained 737 jet engine.

Arrowhead Stadium is routinely named as one of the most difficult venues to play in, partly because of it’s ability to amplify noise, so it’s possible Chiefs fans may give the record a good run.

We’ll find out this weekend as the Chiefs host the Oakland Raiders.
