The passing of Norma Hunt in June left a gaping hole in the hearts of Kansas City Chiefs fans across the country, and the team has decided to wear a jersey patch to commemorate her legacy during the 2023 season.
All season long, we’re celebrating the life of Norma Hunt with this patch on our jerseys.
The football shape is identical to the one in Lamar Hunt’s patch, reminding us of their devotion to each other & their shared passion for the Kansas City Chiefs ❤️ pic.twitter.com/aNuAY2pGsP

The white football-shaped patch has a red outline and bears Hunt’s initials “NKH”. The shape of the patch is of particular note, as it is the same as the one Kansas City wore in remembrance of Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt in the mid-2000s.
Clearly, Norma Hunt’s legacy is something to be celebrated, and the team’s decision to tastefully remember her impact on its organization with this gesture is certainly laudable.
The patch is set to make its debut against the Detroit Lions on Thursday night at 7:20 p.m. when Kansas City will get its 2023 Super Bowl championship defense campaign underway at Arrowhead Stadium in the first game of the new NFL season.
