The Kansas City Chiefs are a professional American football team based in Kansas City, Missouri. The Chiefs compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league’s American Football Conference (AFC) West division. The team was founded in 1960 as the Dallas Texans by businessman Lamar Hunt and was a charter member of the American Football League (AFL). In 1963, the team relocated to Kansas City and assumed their current name. The Chiefs joined the NFL as a result of the AFL–NFL merger in 1970. The team is valued at over $2 billion. Hunt’s son, Clark, serves as chairman and CEO.

The Chiefs have won three AFL championships, in 1962, 1966, and 1969. They became the second AFL team (after the New York Jets) to defeat an NFL team in an AFL–NFL World Championship Game when they defeated the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV. The team’s victory on February 2, 2020 resulted in their first Super Bowl title in 50 years. The Chiefs were also the second team (after the Green Bay Packers) to appear in more than one Super Bowl and still have never lost while appearing there. They have appeared in four AFC Championship Games since 1992 but have not won since 1994.

From 1959 to 1961, reviving a franchise that had been dormant since 1931, Lamar Hunt owned and operated his own minor league football franchise called the Dallas Texans which played for three seasons safely under the confines of Texas Stadium before joining the AFL for its inaugural season in 1960. In their first season as an official franchiseHunt’s Dallas Texans finished with an 8-6 win-loss record including pre-season and playoffs combined for a total of 9 wins against 6 losses (9-6). After two disappointing seasons with records of 2-12(1960) and 5-9(1961), Hunt decided to move his franchise to Kansas City where he felt it would be able to survive and even thrive due to its central location within North America giving it easy access to both coasts for road games as well being geographically closer to more other teams than any other location at that time which would minimize travel related costs such as flight tickets, lodging and food expenses etc..

Super Bowl I

Super Bowl I, originally known as the AFL-NFL World Championship Game, was played on January 15, 1967, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The National Football League (NFL) champion Green Bay Packers defeated the American Football League (AFL) champion Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 35–10.

Super Bowl IV

Kansas City’s lone Super Bowl victory came in Super Bowl IV, when the Chiefs defeated the Minnesota Vikings 23-7 at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans. It was the Chiefs’ second trip to the Super Bowl; they lost to the Green Bay Packers 35-10 in Super Bowl I.
