History and League Title Success
The team was a 1960 charter member of the American Football League as the Dallas Texans; despite being more successful on-field than the Dallas Cowboys (which were also founded in 1960) the Dallas area could not support two professional football franchises, and the Texans relocated to Kansas City in 1964.
The team was named as such as an homage to former Kansas City mayor H. Roe Bartle, who was nicknamed "The Chief" due to his position in the Tribe of Mic-O-Say (which is a secret society he and some local politicians founded), an organization affiliated with the Boy Scouts. The naming also fit other KC area teams, such as the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro League, the Kansas City Kings of the NBA (now the Sacramento Kings), and later the Kansas City Royals of MLB.
The Chiefs have played in three Super Bowls, winning two (Super Bowl IV in 1969 and Super Bowl LIV in 2019) and losing one (the inaugural game in 1966).
