Kansas City Chiefs visit White House for first time after Super Bowl LVII victory

Jun. 5—The Kansas City Chiefs attended the White House for the first time to celebrate their Super Bowl victory on Monday, a visit that also made up for the 2020 season when they missed out on a visit because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"It's been a long wait to stand before you," Chiefs' head coach Andy Reid said. "Again, we are fired up. We missed the first one due to COVID-19, but we are here strong, Kansas City strong."
