KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs received one of their Super Bowl LIV championship spoils on Saturday when the team hoisted the banner in front of a few thousand fans during practice at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Chiefs will repeat the ceremony on September 10 in front of 16,000 fans when they open the NFL season against the Houston Texans.
“The championship banner will be special,” said quarterback Patrick Mahomes. “It will be something you will remember for the rest of your life. I’m glad we have a lot of the same guys on the team who were with me on this trip.
“We’re going to enjoy this together and then we’re going to start playing again and try to find a way to get another one. ”
Coach Andy Reid was not so excited about the ceremony.
“Texans are coming to town,” he said. “We have to understand that. We have to make sure we’re ready for one hell of a football team. We know how good they are. We’ve played them enough and been back and forth with these guys.”
The banner, which was raised by President Clark Hunt and another co-owner and brother Lamar, joined the Chiefs’ Super Bowl IV banner. It represents the only other Super Bowl championship in franchise history.
