To help celebrate the franchise’s 60th season in 2019, the Kansas City Chiefs presented the Lamar Hunt Legacy seat at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. For each home game, the club selected a winner who embodied the spirit of Lamar Hunt and represents the four pillars of the chefs’ mission: to win with character, to unite our community, to inspire our fans and to honor tradition. After being forced to skip recognition due to reduced capacity in 2020, the club are now using the Lamar Hunt Legacy seat to specifically honor a member of the Chiefs’ season ticket at every home game. The two golden seats are located in section 121 of the lower bowl, symbolically positioned as Lamar Hunt’s name in the team’s ring of honor.
This week’s Lamar Hunt Legacy seat winner is Season Ticket Member Steve Lopez. Lopez recently moved from California to Kansas City for the Chiefs and is now a member for second-year season tickets.
