The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl LVIII. Although over three months have passed since then, their celebration is far from over. Collegiate and Professional champion teams are invited to the White House every year. The squad will soon meet the current US President, Joe Biden.

The Chiefs have been invited to the White House. Last season, they became the eighth team to have defended their championship. They visited the President’s residence in 2023 as well. The whole squad is expected to make the trip. But there are two players whose presence is doubtful.

Are Harrison Butker and Rashee Rice going to the White House?

Chiefs WR Rashee Rice was involved in a multi-vehicle accident in March. He has 8 charges against him for overspeeding. The Chiefs wide receiver was reported to be following unsafe driving norms. The NFL is investigating before they hand him a suspension. 

Harrison Butker, the Chiefs kicker, too, has found himself in the middle of a controversy. His speech at Benedictine College wasn’t received well on the internet. He had shared his views on women, the LGBTQ community, and the US president. 

Rice and Butker have been in the spotlight for the wrong reasons. But, the Chiefs stars are expected to visit the White House. There may be some last-minute alterations to the lineup. Not many would like to miss the opportunity to get honored by the US President.

Chiefs’ Super Bowl LIX Dream
