To celebrate the franchise’s 60th season in 2019, the Kansas City Chiefs introduced the Lamar Hunt Legacy seat at Arrowhead Stadium’s GEHA Field.

This week’s Lamar Hunt Legacy Seat honoree is Lori Haley. Haley is a breast cancer survivor who worked for the Federal Reserve for nearly 40 years before retiring in October of 2021. Haley has been a lifelong Chiefs fan since the 1960s and has been a Season Ticket member for 33 years.
