KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Arrowhead Stadium, the home of the Kansas City Chiefs, has room for 76,416 fans.

Millions more watch games on TV or online.

But even if you choose to watch at home, there are all kinds of ways to engage.

Chiefs app

Chiefs fans at home have lots of options to get involved besides just watching games on TV.

One option is the Kansas City Chiefs app. It launched 6 years ago, but has been significantly updated in the past year.

Fans can get gameday information ahead of time, game stats and real-time play information during the game.

You can read, watch, listen and view. You can even scroll through fan options like downloading your very own Chiefs wallpaper for your phone.

Fan clubs

Another way to engage is with Chiefs fan clubs on facebook.

Most are run by die-hard Chiefs fans. Most also require you to answer a few questions while you wait to see if you're accepted into the group.

Questions like:

What former player had #58?

And who's the Chiefs all-time leading rusher?

Once in, you'll be in a group of like-minded fans who share things like Chiefs collections, Chiefs home decor, sign inspirations and jokes

Twitter

Perhaps the best place to be digitally during games is on Twitter.

Conversations happen in real time as plays happen on television screens.

People respond to what happens in the game, they digress and reminisce.

For instance, last week, by far the most talked about event was when Patrick Mahomes' didn't get up off the pile. the Twitterverse exploded with digital gasps, speculation and video analysis of what happened.

And then, when backup quarterback Matt Moore had a beautiful touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill, people on twitter were having the conversations a lot of people at home and in the stands were having... feeling like the Chiefs might actually be okay with the magical Mahomes out of the game.

Instagram

The Chiefs are on Instagram, too, although that's more general sharing instead of real-time, like Twitter.

Here are some suggestions on who to follow on Twitter:
