Super Bowl LVII is one week away, and to celebrate the team’s trip to Arizona, the Eagles hosted a send-off party. Players and fans packed into Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday morning commemorating the team’s success.
AN EARLY START TO SUPER BOWL CELEBRATIONS
Donning their best Eagles’ attire, fans began celebrating on Sunday morning at 9 AM. The party included performances by Eagles cheerleaders, drumline, and DJ Diamond Kuts.
The celebration comes one day after Philadelphia celebrated the five-year anniversary of their first Super Bowl win in 2018.
Philadelphia’s captains took the stage, and when quarterback Jalen Hurts was introduced (in his vintage Eagles’ jacket), the crowd erupted. Head coach Nick Sirianni joined the group with a departing message for fans.
“We’ll keep this quick because we have a plane to catch, but we appreciate everyone’s support, everyone being here out here. If you’re going to Arizona, be loud like you always are. Go Birds.”
With the party ending in an Eagles’ chant, fans watched as six large buses headed to Philadelphia International Airport.
A PHILLY TAKEOVER IN ARIZONA
As the players head to Glendale, traveling fans are also preparing for their Super Bowl adventure.
According to TickPick, 24% of all Super Bowl LVII tickets sold thus far have been purchased from those living in Pennsylvania. On the contrary, only 7% of purchases have come from Missouri and Kansas combined.
With State Farm Stadium sure to be vibrant in green come next week, the Lombardi Trophy was delivered today by former Eagles’ tight end Zach Ertz. Ertz caught seven passes for 67 yards and one touchdown during Philadelphia’s victory. His touchdown was scored in the fourth quarter, putting the Eagles ahead 38-33, before they made their final field-goal to end the game, 41-33.
The Eagles will be joined by the Kansas City Chiefs who last won a Super Bowl in 2020. The Chiefs have reportedly already set a date for their victory parade, spending $750,000. Clearly, they don’t know the [under] dog fight they’re up against.
Both teams will battle it out for the win next Sunday, February 12 at 6:30 PM ET.
