Superbowls

The Kansas City Chiefs have won the Superbowl a total of two times. They won their first Superbowl in 1970 and their second one in 2019.

Won Superbowl IV in 1970

Super Bowl IV, the fourth AFL-NFL World Championship Game in professional American football, was played on January 11, 1970, at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana. The American Football League (AFL) champion Kansas City Chiefs defeated the National Football League (NFL) champion Minnesota Vikings by the score of 23–7. This victory by the AFL signified the eventual merging of the two leagues.

It was also the final game in both Kansas City’s and Minnesota’s respective histories until the Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV 54 years later in 2020. Despite the common perception that all Super Bowl games are conducted on a neutral field, this game was actually played at Tulane Stadium, home field of NFL expansion team New Orleans Saints; it would be 25 years before another Super Bowl would be played in a venue not serving as an NFL home stadium (Super Bowl XXII at San Diego’s Jack Murphy Stadium). Since Tulane Stadium had been open for only two seasons, this game also marked one of only two times (the other being Super Bowl XII four years later) that the same stadium hosted consecutive Super Bowls; both times it was Tulane Stadium hosting Super Bowls IV and XII.

Won Superbowl LIV in 2020

The Kansas City Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV, the franchise’s second Super Bowl title and first in 50 years, by defeating the San Francisco 49ers 31–20 on February 2, 2020. The game was play at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
