Kaufman Stadium is located in Kansas City, Missouri. The stadium can seat 37,903 fans with three levels of seating. In 2012, the stadium will be celebrating being the home stadium of the Kansas City Royals for 40 years. The first game played there was in 1973.
In 2009, the stadium underwent a multi million dollar renovation with their Crown vision high definition score board being the center attraction. Along with that, they renovated concessions, added restrooms and built a concourse that allows fans to see the game from all angles. They added seating in left center, complete with fountains, that have become popular in hotter months with the splash effect the fountains give off.
Family friendly, with ticket pricing as low as 11 for the 2011 season, the concourse offers plenty of family entertainment. The Hall of Fame, batting and pitching cages, mini- golf, even a carousel themed after it’s home team. There is even a full service restaurant and specialty shops available.
It is a spectacular stadium from all angles. It is very easy to see why it was chosen as the host of he 2012 All-Star Game even beating out Boston’s Fenway Park on it’s 100th anniversary season.
