Chiefs make Hunt patch permanent part of uniform

Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - The Kansas City Chiefs have been granted approval by the NFL to make the patch remembering owner and founder Lamar Hunt a permanent part of their uniform.


Hunt, who helped create the American Football League in 1960 and was a guiding force behind the merger with the NFL, died on December 13, 2006. The Chiefs wore a patch in tribute for the 2007 season.


"For all of his countless accomplishments in the world of sports, my father's legacy will always be most closely linked to the founding of the American Football League and its subsequent merger with the NFL," said Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt. "The patch is a fitting tribute for his contributions to the league and a permanent reminder of the indelible mark he left on the game."


The patch, which will be affixed to the left chest of both the Chiefs' road and home jerseys, features the initials "LH" imbedded in the football of the AFL logo.


Hunt, who was 74 years old when he died, was the first AFL figure to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1972. He is credited with coining the term "Super Bowl" for what was first known as the NFL-AFL Championship Game.
