Arrowhead Stadium cleared of snow for tailgaters

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The gates at Arrowhead Stadium opened at eight Sunday morning ahead of the showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Indianapolis colts.

The grills were fired up and the fans were out throughout the parking lots at the stadium, on the ground there was barely any sign of any snow.

It couldn't have been done without a small army of workers.

More than 200 people worked overnight to clear the snow, many of those people were crews from the Martz Brothers Snow Removal Company.

They started working Saturday afternoon. They first treated the parking lots then plowed once the snow started around 9:30 Saturday night.

The company brought in twice the amount of equipment to complete this task.

More than 350 tons of ice melt and 30 trucks were used to push and get rid of the snow.

All of it was to get it ready for the thousands of tailgaters.

"You can't be a fair weathered tailgater. You gotta do it right," Blake Berwald, a tailgater said.

Sunday's game marked the last home game of the regular season.

"Well we got a big ol' bus here--took a bunch of people down and just ready to enjoy the game," Chris Perry, another tailgater said.
