What Does The “NKH” Patch on Chiefs’ Jerseys Mean?
At this moment, all eyes are on the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers, gearing up for an intense showdown in Las Vegas. The ultimate prize at stake is the revered Lombardi Trophy.
Many anticipate that Super Bowl 58 will break records as the most-watched football game in history. A surge of casual fans is expected to tune in not only for the game itself but also for the anticipated commercials, Taylor's appearance, and Usher's halftime show. Many of these first-time viewers are wondering about the significance behind the "NKH" patch displayed on the Chiefs' jerseys.
Birth of the Kansas City Chiefs
The Dallas Texans, founded by Lamar Hunt in 1959, played a pivotal role as one of the original members of the American Football League (AFL).
Lamar's journey with the team intertwined with his personal life, as he met and married his wife during this period. In a significant move in 1963, the couple relocated the team to Kansas City and changed its name to Chiefs.

Norma Hunt's influence extended beyond the team's relocation, playing a key role in renaming the "Big Game." Her story of purchasing "Super-Balls" for her kids and using the toy's name as inspiration for a name change was shared during today's pregame coverage.
Norma passed away last June. In remembrance, the Chiefs honor her legacy with an NKH patch on their jerseys.
"My family and I are so proud to honor our mother's life and legacy this season," Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. "My mom loved football, and she loved the Chiefs."
