KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Officials expect 50,000 fans to take over downtown for the Big 12 Championship. The Sprint Center holds more than 19,000 and 8,000 can fill the KC Live! block. That's the same number of trucks that come off the assembly line at the Ford Plant in Claycomo.
In the Power & Light District overall, more than 30,000 fans will fill the streets. That's about the size of the entire populations of Leawood or Liberty.
