    Kauffman Stadium is located in Kansas City, Missouri and is home to Major League Baseball’s Kansas City Royals. The Stadium opened in 1973 and together with Arrowhead Stadium, home of the NFL’s Chiefs, it is part of the Truman Sports Complex. The stadium is named after Royals’ founding owner, Ewing Kauffman. The stadium was built specifically for baseball, in an era when multi-use stadiums were commonplace (stadiums in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Cincinnati featured a cookie-cutter designs that housed both MLB and NFL teams). Kauffman Stadium features a fountain and water display behind the right field fence. From 1973 to 1995 the playing surface was Astro Turf, before natural grass was installed.

    History

    Plans for a new Kansas City Chiefs football stadium and Kansas City Athletics baseball stadium were drawn in 1967 after fans approved bonds for the project. But prior to the 1968 season, A’s owner Charles Finley moved the team to Oakland. After the move, Missouri Senator Stuart Symington pressured baseball for an expansion team in Kansas City. Baseball obliged, granting Kansas City a new franchise in 1969. The newly named Royals played in old Municipal Stadium until brand new Royals Stadium opened in 1973. It was renamed Kauffman Stadium in 1993.
