KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One lucky Chiefs fan was surprised Tuesday with the ultimate football prize as Hall of Fame offensive guard Will Shields and members of the NFL Extra Points Credit Card team showed up to her office with two tickets to Super Bowl LIV.

Haley Johnston won the contest as a card holder from the company's pool of Chiefs fans. She was awarded two tickets to see the Chiefs play the San Francisco 49ers on Feb. 2, round-trip airfare from Kansas City and a three-night hotel stay in Miami.

Shields and company visited Johnston's office Tuesday in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, to surprise her with the news.

Following the announcement, Johnston told 41 Action News that winning the prize filled her with overwhelming joy.

“It’s indescribable. It’s everything,” she said. “Now I need to get a tan and tell my boss I’m not coming to work for a few days.”

Johnston has been a Chiefs season ticket holder for the last 10 years and said she has only missed two games in that time.

With her favorite team now in the Super Bowl, she said being able to cheer them on in person would be a special experience.

“This has been my dream,” she said. “My friends and I were going to go down and come home Saturday night and watch the game in Kansas City. I can’t afford a Super Bowl ticket. It’s my whole life savings.”

According to an NFL Extra Points Credit Card spokesperson, Johnston was selected from a random pool of card members who are also Chiefs fans.
