Kansas City Chiefs fans break record for loudest crowd


The Kansas City Chiefs fan came into the game today trying to break the world record for the loudest crowd. The record was just set four weeks ago by Seattle Seahawks fans at CenturyLink Field with 136.6 decibels. Arrowhead Stadium can hold 10,000 more fans than CenturyLink, so they came in with an advantage.

“It’s tough to imagine that, man,” Chiefs safety Eric Berry said, via the Washington Post. “Just the games I’ve been a part of it, it’s already hard to get our calls. I can be standing right next to (cornerback Brandon) Flowers trying to get a call to him and he can’t hear me. I’m screaming at the top of my lungs. So imagining it getting even louder is unimaginable.”

“I hope we do break the record with the noise level,” Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson said, “but if we don’t, I know it’s going to be loud. I can barely hear when I’m out there. So as long as our crowd keeps that up, we’ll be just fine.”

The Chiefs fans didn’t let their team down either by breaking the record by almost a full decibel.

Before the Seahawks beat the record, it was 131.9 decibels and held by Galatasaray, a Turkish soccer team.
