KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Even Jefferson City will be dressed in red to celebrate the Chiefs heading to the Super Bowl.

Gov. Mike Parson announced Wednesday that the Missouri State Capitol dome will shine red on Friday evening in celebration of the Chiefs.

“As long-time fans and season ticket holders, Teresa and I couldn’t be more excited for the Chiefs. This is well-deserved for a team that has played an important role in Kansas City and the State of Missouri for many years,” Parson said in the release. “Sports are a big part of Missouri’s heritage, and we’re proud to have the Kansas City Chiefs represent our great state in the Super Bowl this year.”

The governor also said that he hopes the Chiefs are able to bring the trophy home to Missouri.
