The Kansas City Chiefs will open the Chiefs Hall of Honor at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium to the public on Thursday, September 1 for fans to view a tribute commemorating the life and legacy of Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback, broadcaster and Kansas City icon, Len Dawson.
"We believe it's important to provide Chiefs Kingdom and the Kansas City community an opportunity to honor the life and legacy of Len Dawson. My family and I would like to invite fans to celebrate Len's many contributions to the Chiefs and the game of professional football, as well as his unwavering commitment to his adopted hometown of Kansas City," Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. "There is no more revered place inside GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium than the new Hall of Honor, and we believe this will offer a fitting tribute for our great fans to remember one of the true legends of the game."
The tribute inside the Chiefs Hall of Honor will be open to the public – free of charge – from 1 to 9 p.m. on Thursday. Guests should park in Lots F and G and enter into the CommunityAmerica Credit Union Gate. Once inside the gate, visitors will be directed down the spiral ramp and will proceed to the Hall of Honor. After exiting the Hall of Honor, guests will have the opportunity to view a tribute on the stadium's video boards before exiting the stadium at Tower Gate East.
Due to the number of anticipated guests, all movement through the stadium and the Hall of Honor will be queued. All guests wishing to view the tribute will have to pass through security screening at the CommunityAmerica Credit Union Gate. The NFL's clear bag policy (www.chiefs.com/stadium/clearbag) will be in effect for Thursday.
