NFL Saddened with Kansas city Chiefs News


The Kansas City Chiefs and the NFL at large recently suffered a monumental loss when the club announced on Sunday night that team matriarch Norma Hunt had passed away.


Hunt, who was married to Kansas City and league legend Lamar Hunt, was the only woman to attend every Super Bowl in person. She was responsible for a tremendous amount of behind-the-scenes efforts within the Chiefs organization and a ton of positive league advancement efforts as well. Hunt’s legacy will last for years to come, and the things she was able to accomplish for the team and for women aspiring to be impactful in sports won’t be forgotten.

Our family is deeply saddened by the passing of our mother, Norma. She was a wonderful mother and an extraordinary woman who will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Kind, generous and unfailingly positive, mom was one of a kind. Her joy and zeal for life were infectious. She loved caring for others, and she always had an encouraging word. She was a loyal friend, the consummate hostess and she had a rare ability to make everyone she encountered feel valued and at ease.

Mom was steadfastly devoted to her family and fiercely passionate about her family’s sports teams. She was by our father Lamar’s side every step of the way – from the merger of the AFL and the NFL to the formation of Major League Soccer, World Championship Tennis, the North American Soccer League, and their founding investment in the Chicago Bulls. She was the only person we knew who rivaled his love of sports. The two of them found such joy together, whether at home, or in stadium stands around the world.

This February, she attended her 57th and final Super Bowl and watched her beloved Chiefs hoist the Lombardi Trophy for the third time. It was a fitting conclusion to her streak as the only woman to attend every Super Bowl.

Her quiet yet deep faith sustained her throughout her life, and we take great comfort knowing that she is home with the Lord. She will be greatly missed by our family, the extended Chiefs and FC Dallas families, and by everyone who knew her.

On Sunday night and Monday morning, the football world has taken to Twitter to honor the life and legacy of Norma Hunt. Those tweets, embedded below, come from official NFL team accounts, current and former Chiefs players, pillars of the NFL ecosystem and media members.
