Lamar Hunt Jr. - Loretto Sports Ventures
Born into a sports dynasty, Lamar Hunt Jr. started his own venture, Loretto Sports, when he purchased the ECHL Missouri Mavericks (now the Kansas City Mavericks) in January 2015, and then the Topeka RoadRunners (now the Topeka Pilots) in April 2018.
Lamar Hunt Jr. is the son of renowned sports promoter Lamar Hunt — known to KC locals as the founder and longtime owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, as well as the man who coined the term "Super Bowl." His father’s interest in sports went far beyond the Chiefs, as he was also instrumental in starting Major League Soccer in the United States.
Over the years, Lamar Hunt's children have carried on his legacy in their numerous ways. Today, Hunt Jr. enjoys a beneficial interest as part of the founding family of the Kansas City Chiefs and serves on the advisory board. However, he has also embraced his love of ice hockey with his dedication to the Mavericks, the Pilots, and their fans.
