THE Kansas City Chiefs are set for their first-ever visit to the White House as Super Bowl champions, with the team setting a June 5 date for their meeting with President Joe Biden

THE Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 on February 12 in Glendale, Arizona for their third Super Bowl title

However, the team did not travel to Washington after their title in the 2019-20 season due to the pandemic. And back when the Chiefs won Super Bowl IV in January 1970, sports champions meeting the president were infrequent

The first NFL championship team to visit the White House was the 1979-80 Pittsburgh Steelers, according to multiple media outlets.

The Los Angeles Rams, who won the Super Bowl in February 2022, did not go to the White House. The only NFL champions to have met Biden were the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, whose July 2021 ceremony was the first for an NFL club since 2017.

On Tuesday, the college football playoff champion’s Georgia program announced that he would not go to the White House because he could not find a viable date. A day earlier, the two defending NCAA basketball champions, LSU women and UConn men, confirmed they would be heading to the White House on May 26.
