Who are some of the Kansas City Chiefs’ most famous fans?
The Kansas City Chiefs will face the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 2023, and their superstar fans may make an appearance in Arizona to support them.
The Kansas City Chiefs have been serious Super Bowl contenders for years, and on Sunday, Feb. 12, they will be making their fifth appearance to fight for the Lombardi trophy.
Their continued success has earned them the admiration and loyalty of their supporters. The team has a very solid fan base, with their home Arrowhead Stadium recording the loudest cheers in NFL history.
Some of the Chiefs’ supporters attract as much attention as the team itself when they attend games, because Kansas City counts a lot of celebrities among their fans.
Here are some of the very familiar faces that cheer for the Chiefs.
The Ant-Man actor took up theater at the University of Kansas which explains his loyalty to the Chiefs, and has often been seen on the sidelines cheering for them. Rudd even went on the field to celebrate with Patrick Mahomes when the team won Super Bowl LIV after beating the San Francisco 49ers in Feb. 2020.
The British star of The Witcher became a fan of the NFL when he lived in the United States. The Superman actor then realized he needed to pick a team to cheer for, and he decided on the Chiefs based on a famous role that he played.
Rock star Melissa Etheridge has sung the national anthem at the start of some games at Arrowhead, and makes it a point not miss any Chiefs matchups. She even composed a song in honor of the team.
Brad Pitt is known to be a fan of the New Orleans Saints, but he has also rooted for the Chiefs. His connection to the team is likely connected to his living in Missouri in his early youth.
Emmy nominee John Amos actually signed up with the Kansas City Chiefs when it was still part of the American Football League, but coach Hank Stram reportedly told him that “You’re not a football player, you’re a man who is trying to play football”. He may not have had a chance to make a career on the field with the Chiefs, but he is often seen on the sidelines to cheer for them.
Actor and comedian Rob Riggle has been a lifelong Chiefs fan, and is often seen egging on fans in the stadium. The Saturday Night Live alum has been putting on the same red KC shirt whenever he watches a game for the past seven years.
