KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The world record for loudest outdoor stadium resides once again at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Chiefs reclaimed the record Monday night in the second quarter against the New England Patriots with a decibel reading of 142.2 decibels.
“The fans,” coach Andy Reid said during his postgame media session, “they’re phenomenal. 142.2 decibel levels.
“I never thought I would be fired up (for) decibel levels but I’m fired up for them. My ears are still ringing; I mean it was loud, loud down there. Like incredibly loud.”
Reid wasn’t the only one to appreciate the fan support Monday night during the Chiefs’ blowout 41-14 win over the Patriots.
“This city is great,” cornerback Sean Smith said. “They always stand behind us; they’re the greatest fans in the league right now. It means a lot to go out there and play fast and give the crowd some excitement.”
A representative from the Guinness World Record was present Monday night to confirm the new world record decibel reading.
The Chiefs previously set the record at 137.5 decibels on Oct. 13, 2013 against the Oakland Raiders.
The record stood for just seven weeks before the Seattle Seahawks fans established a then-record reading of 137.6 decibels at CenturyLink Field.
