These cup holders seem to be a different spot than fans might be accustomed to seeing at a stadium.

The Chiefs are having new seats installed in the upper deck at Arrowhead Stadium, and a few photos have been shared on Twitter. It shows the cup holders are on the upper right of the seatbacks.

New seats are part of a $10 million update at Arrowhead Stadium that will include a re-application of waterproofing measures to the entire upper deck and an update to the Arrowvision scoreboard.

The Chiefs are paying for the work, Jim Rowland, the executive director of the Jackson County Sports Complex Authority told The Star in January. However, the Chiefs can request to be reimbursed by the sports authority at a future date.

Here is a look at the new seats:

Carroll Seating, which is based in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, made the seats. The company tweeted: “There are cup holders on the new seats! The first row will have them mounted to the armrest and the rest of the seats have them on the back of the seat. No more kicked over drinks!!!”
