When the Dallas Texans of the American Football League were relocated to Kansas and renamed the Kansas City Chiefs, they eventually needed a new home stadium. When finding a new location proved to be a struggle Jackson County offered a site on the eastern edge of Kansas City close to the interchange of Interstate 70 and Interstate 435. In 1967, a $102 million bond issue was approved by voters. The original design by  Charles Deaton and Steadman, the first two-stadium design of its kind, outlined the construction of adjacent baseball and football stadiums, with a common roof that would move between them required. Eventually this design was deemed to be too complicated and costly, resulting in the construction of the current two-stadium open-air configuration.

Construction was completed in 1972, and The Chiefs defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 24–14 in the first preseason game of the Arrowhead Stadium.
