Overview

The Kingdome was a domed multi-purpose sports arena that first opened in 1976.  It served as home field to several professional Seattle sports teams, including the Mariners of Major League Baseball, the Seahawks of the NFL, and the Sounders of the North American Soccer League.
 
The stadium was demolished by implosion on March 26, 2000 after the city of Seattle and King County followed through on plans to replace the aging facility with a pair of new stadiums.  Qwest Field, home of the Seahawks and the Sounders of MLS was constructed on the former site of the Kingdome itself, while the baseball stadium Safeco Field was constructed nearby.  The decision to replace the Kingdome came about following an incident in which pieces of the concrete ceiling broke loose and fell to the surface below.
