Kansas City – Arrowhead Stadium is without a doubt one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL.
The Chiefs fans will probably make a lot of noise again in the championship game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday (from 8:45 p.m. live on ProSieben and in the live stream on ran.de).
Bengals practice with fan noise off the assembly line
Former German NFL professional Sebastian Vollmer said on the #ranNFL playoff web show “Champion Check”: “When I had to play at Arrowhead Stadium, I couldn’t hear my opponent right next to me anymore.” But how do you prepare for that as an away team?
Bengals coach Zac Taylor trained at the Bengals stadium last week and then played the fan noise over loudspeakers there. “We’ve played in a noisy environment before, but of course I know the situation there will be different and there will be another level of fan noise,” said the Bengals coach.
Taylor speaks of “stress test for our communication”
Taylor added: “This method using the loudspeakers in the stadium was very effective and gave us a good week of training, but also a stress test for our communication.” You will be ready for Sunday, said the head coach of Joe Burrow and Co.
Sunday evening will show whether the unusual preparation will actually lead to success.
