ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt says the team prefers to renovate Arrowhead Stadium rather than build a new stadium.

But that will depend on a number of studies that are examining the structural integrity of a building celebrating its opening 50 years ago this season.

The future of Arrowhead will be determined just as the Chicago Bears decide whether to leave Soldier Field, which opened in 1924 and is the NFL’s oldest stadium.

The franchise signed a purchase agreement last year for the 326-acre site of the old Arlington Park horse racing track, which is about 30 miles northwest of its current stadium.
