KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs fans will sit in new seats in the upper deck and enjoy better pictures from the end zone scoreboard after off-season stadium upgrades.

The team announced the improvements in Monday night on their website.

"It's been a decade since our last major renovation to Arrowhead Stadium was completed and we've been taking an extensive look at areas we can address as we move towards future seasons," said Chiefs President Mark Donovan in the release. "We are excited about these projects and look forward to the work beginning in the coming days and weeks.''

Fans with tickets in the upper deck will enjoy new seating throughout the section.

Those new seats also will have cup holders, a first for the upper deck, according to the story.

Before those new seats can be added, the team will remove the old ones and lay down a new waterproof coating in the upper deck.

The waterproofing will protect suites on the Club Level and help with structural integrity of the concrete, according to the story.

The football-shaped Arrowvision scoreboard will feature better video for fans to watch the action on the field and other game day features.

The stadium improvements come as the football team tries to improve on the exciting 2018 season that saw quarterback Patrick Mahomes become a superstar and the team win a home playoff game.
