MIAMI — The Kansas City Chiefs Cheerleaders are in Miami to cheer the team on to victory in Super Bowl LIV.

Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers will serve as four of the cheerleaders’ first away game and also their last.

“It’s a dream I always had but never really imagined it would actually, really happen," said Ashley.

Each cheerleader has her own story as to why she auditioned for the team, but for Ashley, Lindsay, Claire and Caroline, they're all ending their careers the same way after six seasons.

“I’d be lying if I said it was an easy decision,” Lindsay said. “It was probably one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make. I love this team and this organization.”

One of their favorite memories was breaking the world record at Arrowhead Stadium.

“When we broke the world record in 2014, that was my rookie season against the Patriots,” Ashley said. “So the roar of the crowd that day was absolutely magnificent.”

This season, the squad said, was different. Since March, the team has been preparing for the Super Bowl and have big predictions for Sunday's game.

“Everyone be excited, wear your red and Chiefs by 100," Claire said.
