Arhcitecure.

For example, the lower bowl of Arrowhead stadium is designed to keep the sound in the stadium swirling and not escape. Kind of like a dome. It was light years ahead of its time. I'm sure other stadiums enjoy the same luxury. Also, fans bang the seats, jump up and down, etc.

I've been to 12 different NFL stadlums and they ARE NOT all the same.

Perhaps, but the effect of architecture is slight in comparison with the effect of team performance.

Falcons Fan

As a falcon fan, I have been to Georgia Dome a few times. And evey time it was loud. Probably cause we won all of the games, nail biting games. I have been to a browns game and the same noise level. They too won that game. It was against the falcons of course. Nor did I recieve any flack from the other fans.

Eagle from Frankfurt

I was a year as an exchange in the USA and went to the match Washington against Dallas Cowboys. There was 90.000 just watching fans, online chants every 5mins something.

Here I listed you some videos of fans!, which support their team 90 Minutes in a row and organize great choreographies. This is atmosphere, watch it!

Fact: The loudest recorded volume in a stadium was Reliant Stadium in September 2002 for the Texans inaugural game against the Cowboys. It was said it was after the first touchdown and the fans went crazy. Probably would have been quite interesting to have been there. I couldn't find a DB rating but that's what they all say. Here's a video, it's a bit hard with the audio but you get the idea.

Let me rephrase: any stadium hosting its city's first NFL game in 8 years, whose team scores a touchdown on it's first drive in team history, would be just as loud. Too bad Reliant Stadium has sounded like a morgue ever since that game six years ago.

in general you cant say the exact number in db, but maybe that is ne decibel record in the usa.

that is the coordination of the sides in our stadium! seemes to be the world record.

qwest field is the loudest stadium in the nfl GO HAWKS

Hans Steiniger

Hey, I've been to 26 of the 31 Stadiums in the National Football League including the notroiously loud such as SEA, KC, BUF, MIN, OAK, CLE, PIT. I would have to agree that the decible level in each stadium is different. It's pretty clear that crowd noise does indeed have an affect on that game. Just look at the number of false start penalties for the opposing offense. You'll find that Seattle tops the list with Minnesota second. These are the two loudest stadiums in the league. Check out my site for more information.

kraigk

ok you are all feeble arrowhead has the record (yes their is a record)with 116 Decimals the equivalent to a 747 jumbo airplane landing so stick that in your pipe and smoke it Seattle

ryan fitzgerald

arrowhead stadium has been measured to be about 120 decibles average loudness.

Other things around 120 decibles: jet taking off, live rock music, extemely close thunder clap, steel mills

When the Chiefs are having a bad season, they're tough to beat at Arrowhead. When they're having a good season, they're unbeatable. With the scent of barbecue in the air and a sea of red in the stands, Kansas City is the best football atmosphere in the country. From SI.com

Domes will always be louder than open air stadiums. I've heard that Arrowhead is the loudest outdoor, while the old RCA Dome for the Colts was the loudest indoor. The Patriots even complained that the Colts were piping in sound because it was so loud. I've been to punk concerts that were quieter.

cj mcgrew

my nose doesnt bleed in the upper decks of arrowhead stadium, my ears do, no doubt the loudest in the nfl.

Brian206

Dear Kraig K. As far a putting anything in our pipes and smoking it goes, a decimal is part of a math equation. A decibel is a measurement of sound. And 116 at Arrowhead is less than the 137db that Fox Sports recorded at the 2005 NFC Championship game in Seattle. So as you say, put that in your pipe and smoke it.

MIKEC

ARROWHEAD STADIUM IN KANSAS CITY MISSOURI WITHOUT A DOUBT. YOU NOT ONLY HEAR IT, YOU FEEL IT THERE!!

Shaboi

brian206 were talkin average not one single game. So your not comparing apples to apples. Aslo, Arrowhead doesn't cheat and pump sound in so its the best.

RamonGustav

I think you are not quite right and you should still studying the matter.

Rebecca McGlinn

Arrowhead may very well hold the record at 116db, however Qwest field has been recorded at 112db and Arrowhead can hold 12,000 more fans!!!
Take out 12,000 voices and I wonder what it would be?

Ryan

for you feeble KC Chiefs fans claiming some whimpy 112 db level is the loudest recorded, or even 120 db by one other fellow, their have been college games recorded louder than that.... for your 112 claim as a record? go check the Fox Sports recorded 137 db in the 05 NFC Championship game at Qwest, trust me, not only could you feel it, you could feel it and hear it on the all through Down town, over the freeway traffic, over the hustle and bustle of people, and I know your stadium is in the boonies, so top that... and FYI, league investigated us, never found pumping of crowd noise, they just couldn't believe how loud we are...

Katie

Fool can't even read. He thinks a 6 is a 2! Poor little guy. I'm not surprised to see another ignoramus unable to tell what "the boonies" is, probably never been out of Seattle. Hands down, Arrowhead Stadium. It's an experience unlike any other and I'm not the only one who thinks so, obviously.

Mike Walters

i lived in kc for half my life and was (and still am) a season ticket holder. I was forced to move to seattle 3 years ago for my job. I hate the seahawks but i have to say the 2 games i was forced to go to with friends quest is unfortunately much loader then arrowhead. That being said go Chiefs!

Kory

looking at FACTS. Fox Sports did indeed record 137db at Seattle in 2005. that is the record for loudest db ever recorded at one nfl stadium. it's not about arrowhead having the capacity for 10,000 or so more seats. it's if those seats are filled with people making noise. I heard on sportscenter(I can't find it online) that arrowhead (chiefs) averaged a few more dicibals per game, with Qwest (seahawks)in second and RCA (colts) in third. but the record was set in seattle in 2005 with 137 db. thanks for playing.

Bubba

I literally saw three people's heads explode from the noise at Quest. Hard to top that.

the virus

Qwest field crowd noise was measurable on the richter scale. TRUE STORY. name another fan base that caused an earthquake? That's why we're called the 12th man!

Joe Rainier

It's hard for audio to capture what it is like inside most NFL stadiums, but here is one from Seattle's Qwest field that does justice to what it is like there during a playoff game.

FutebolFanatic

Qwest field has capacity for 67,000 spectators and has a reported record of 137 decibels.

BJK Inonu Stadium in Istanbul has capacity for a mere 32, 086 spectators and set the record for loudest football (soccer) stadium in Oct. 2007 @ 132 decibels in a Champions League match vs. Liverpool. I can only IMAGINE what BJK would sound like with an additional 30,000 spectators to level the playing field with NFL stadiums...they would SHATTER any NFL or American sports decibel record!!

Tia

JUST BECAUSE THE CHEIFS SUCK DOESN'T MEAN THAT WE ARE NOT ONE OF THE LOUDEST STADIUMS IN THE NFL WHEN WE WIN WE ARE LOUDER THAN LOUD WHEN WE LOSE WE ARE STILL LOUD JUST BECAUSE WE LOSE DOESN'T MEAN THAT WE ARE NOT ONE OF THE LOUDEST STADIUMS I HAVE BEEN TO A FEW GAMES IN MY LIFE SOME WE LOOSE SOME WE WIN BUT EAITHER WAY WE STILL BRING IT AND WE STILL CAN FEEL THE LOUDNESS IN THE STADIUM!!!!!!! (DIE HEART FAN NO MATTER WHAT)!!!!!

Micah L.

I don't know about that, but Chiefs fans definitely know how to use their caps lock button for loud comments.
