Chiefs unveil Super Bowl championship rings as team receives them during private ceremony

The Super Bowl champions received their championship rings Thursday night. In a private ceremony at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, the Chiefs received their individual jewelry for defeating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.

Kansas City won its second consecutive championship in overtime, 25-22, on a three-yard touchdown pass from Patrick Mahomes to Mecole Hardman.

The ring ceremony came two weeks after the Chiefs visited the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl title and presented President Joe Biden with a team helmet and jersey.

Revealed to the public after players and coaches received their jewelry, the championship rings not only celebrate the Super Bowl LVIII victory but also the history of the franchise.

As team owner Clark Hunt mentioned During the red carpet media festivities, the ring design includes the team logo, four Lombardi Trophies to represent the four championships the franchise has won, each player’s name and jersey number, and the year of every Chiefs Super Bowl victory.

Similar to last year’s ring, the piece includes a removable top that reveals a miniature football field, individualized details for each player (like how many Super Bowls he won with the team) and a playbook diagram of the pass that won the team. Super Bowl. Bowl, called “Tom & Jerry”.

The inside of the ring includes the score of each playoff game Kansas City won on its way to this championship and the initials “NKH” in honor of Norma Hunt, Clark Hunt’s mother and widow of team founder Lamar Hunt. who died last year. (Lamar Hunt’s initials are on the bottom outside of the ring.)

A detailed diagram explaining each of the ring’s features and what they symbolize for the franchise can be seen at chiefs official website.

The media was not allowed to attend the ring ceremony, but the Chiefs did hold festivities on the red carpet in front of Nelson-Atkins for reporters (who waited in 95 degree heat) when players and coaches arrived.

The champions did not disappoint with their fashion choices when they arrived on the scene. Coach Andy Reid set the bar high with his red sneakers.

Reid wasn’t the only one showing off the main color of the Chiefs as a whole. Tight end Travis Kelce and Mahomes’ wife, Brittany, sported red (or fuchsia) on their uniforms, as did receiver Márquez Valdés-Scantling, now with the Buffalo Bills.

Like last year, the Chiefs did not publicly reveal the 2024 championship rings before Thursday’s ceremony, presumably saving them for players to see first. But once the design was unveiled, the team shared the rich, numerous and very specific details of those championship rings for all to see.

Reid met with reporters after the team’s final minicamp practice and said it was nice to celebrate once again with the ring ceremony. But players and coaches are already looking ahead to the 2024-25 season and seeking a third straight Super Bowl title.

“It goes by quickly. Once you finish that parade, you’re on your way and heading into the new season.” Reid said, via KMBC-TV. “It’s a night, I don’t want to belittle this night, because there’s a lot that goes into it and a lot of work has gone into it and this is kind of a reward for it. But I think the guys know it. It’ll be good to get the ring, but they’ve moved on.” .
