The Kansas City Chiefs are back in the Super Bowl, and this year, they’re taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Here are some of the famous faces that will be cheering on Kansas City along with all the drunk would-be tailgaters (sorry Chiefs fans) when the team heads to Tampa for the big game.
It would seem irresponsible not to start this list with Paul Rudd, who is arguably the celebrity most know as a diehard fan of not only the Kansas City Chiefs, but the city’s baseball team, the Royals, as well. When the Royals clinched a playoff spot in 2014, Rudd, who grew up in Lenexa, Kansas, and attended the University of Kansas, jokingly invited fans to a party at his mother’s house.
The funny man and former Marine grew up just outside Kansas City in Overland Park, Kansas, and was also a fixture during the Royals’ most recent two World Series campaigns. Riggle told a Chiefs team blog that he’s been waiting for the Chiefs to go to the Super Bowl his entire life.
Though younger than Paul Rudd, Sudeikis went to the same high school in Kansas as the superhero actor. He was also a fixture at games during the Royals’ playoff runs and has been a staunch supporter of Kansas City, even wearing a T-shirt of a popular Irish pup in Kansas City’s historic Westport neighborhood in the above photo.
The “Modern Family” actor grew up on livestock farm in Kansas City, Kansas (which is different from Kansas City, Missouri). But if you question his love of Chiefs, just scroll through his Instagram to see photos of him in the locker room and video of him beating the drum during home games.
If Paul Rudd is the actor most famously known to be a Chiefs fan, then Brad Pitt is simply the most famous Chiefs fan. While walking the red carpet at the 2020 SAG Awards, which happened to be the same day the Chiefs punched their ticket to the big game last season, fellow Chiefs fans tossed Pitt a hat to rock on the carpet.
The country rock icon, from Leavenworth, Kanas, is a longtime supporter of the red and yellow. She even sang the national anthem ahead of last season’s AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots.
The Kansas City Chiefs have a Superman, which is fitting, since the comic book character grew up just over the state line in Kansas. Cavill, however, is English from Jersey in the Channel Islands. That however hasn’t stopped him from cheering on the Chiefs via his Instagram.
