KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) --- A day after Kansas City won a bid as a host city for the 2026 World Cup, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas said there will be $50 million worth of improvements to Arrowhead Stadium.

Arrowhead Stadium will be the host stadium for all of the games in the city.

“Only actual cost right now is $50M of improvements to Arrowhead Stadium,” Lucas said in a tweet. “Look for an ask to the state on that in addition to private fundraising to fund that step. That is unless the future of the stadiums chat progresses further.”

In the same tweet thread, Lucas said additional costs will be needed for “increased transit between the stadiums and population centers in the city and the airport.”
