Chiefs fans line up to purchase gear following Super Bowl win
As soon as the Kansas City Chiefs cemented their place in history Sunday, fans rushed to stores hoping to get their hands on gear to celebrate the Super Bowl LIV champions.
Academy Sports allowed 10 to 20 customers in at a time to find Chiefs t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies. The gear was being stored in boxes the store said would only be opened Sunday night -- after the Chiefs won.
Our own Natalie Davis was 4th in line to get her t-shirt.
M-V-PAT: “The Chiefs fans are amazing. I’m happy we get to get this trophy, bring it to Kansas City, and enjoy it with everybody.” 🏆🏈❤️️💛https://bit.ly/2UmooQa #chiefskingdom #kwch12
Chiefs fans said they've been waiting decades for this moment.
They packed bars in Wichita to see the historic game, and in Kansas fans flocked to the Power and Light District. Some arrived as early as 5 a.m. to get their spot in the standing-room-only entertainment district.
Those who didn't get to celebrate in Miami won't have to wait too much longer for their team's return. The Kansas City Chiefs say they will hold a Super Bowl parade on Wednesday at 11:30 a.m.
