Lamar Hunt Legacy Seat
To help celebrate the franchise's 60th season in 2019, the Kansas City Chiefs introduced the Lamar Hunt Legacy seat at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. For each home game, the club selects a Season Ticket Member to honor with this special recognition. The two gold seats are located in Section 121 of the lower bowl, symbolically positioned under Lamar Hunt's name in the team's Ring of Honor.
This week's Lamar Hunt Legacy Seat honoree is Tim Harris. Tim is a former U.S. Navy surgeon that is currently working as a general surgeon in Emporia, Kansas, where he performed the first da Vinci robotic surgery. In his 31 years of being a Season Ticket Member, Tim's biggest Chiefs highlight was taking his children to Super Bowl LIV in Miami, Florida.
