The Kansas City Chiefs ended a championship drought of more than 50 years when they defeated the San Francisco 49ers at Super Bowl LIV.
And, as a result, they get the honor of being invited to the White House to meet with President Trump.
This is something Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, superstar Travis Kelce, and several other players are excited for.
During a post-game presser after the big game, Reid expressed he would absolutely be visiting the White House.
As the Western Journal reports, he told reporters that it would be “an honor” to him and the team to be invited.
“I mean, I’ll be there,” Reid added. “I’ll be there. If they’re inviting us, I’ll be here.”
As the visit nears, Kelce expressed this week that he had grown up his whole life watching other teams take the prestigious journey to the White House—but now it was his time.
“NFL tight end Travis Kelce spoke out this week as yet another member of the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs excited by the team’s upcoming White House visit,” the Western Journal reports.
Taking to Twitter, the superstar wrote: “Grew up my whole life watching teams win championships and then go to the White House and get recognized for their greatness.”
“Regardless of who is in office I think it’s a unique opportunity to experience our nation’s capital,” he added.
