KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs are revamping a longtime game-day tradition at Arrowhead Stadium.

On Thursday, the team announced its new drum deck. A spokesman said it's a permanent location for the team's game-day drum traditions to take place. This includes the drum honoree before kickoff and the Tony DiPardo Spirit Leader.

The drum deck will be located on the west side of the stadium near sections 335 and 336.

A spokesman said the drum deck will allow the team to bring one of its game-day traditions closer to the fans in the upper bowl. Previously, the team wheeled the drum onto the field.
