A month after Seattle Seahawks fans set a world record for the loudest sports crowd, fans at Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium have taken that title away.
A representative for the Guinness World Records was in Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday when fans of the Kansas City Chiefs (who are 6-0 on the season) hit 137.5 decibels, breaking Seattle’s record of 136.6 decibels, set on Sept. 15. The record-breaking moment came during a routine defensive play against the Oakland Raiders.
Neither stadium is good for your eardrums. According to research at Purdue University, 130 decibels is roughly the noise level of a jet taking off from an aircraft carrier from 50 feet away.
