After the Chiefs' Super Bowl LIV victory over the San Francisco 49ers in February 2020, there was no private ring ceremony amid the COVID-19 pandemic that year
Star tight end Travis Kelce said Thursday night's event "feels right," even as a "last hurrah" before the team looks ahead to 2023.
"I think everybody in this building is kind of ready to go after 2023 here and put this one in the past," Kelce said. "But it's going to be cool seeing these rings and reminisce for one more time."
Chiefs owner Clark Hunt called the private ceremony a chance to have a huge party to "properly celebrate our Super Bowl victory.
