Eagles fans begin rioting in Philadelphia chanting “f*** the Chiefs” after narrow Super Bowl LVII loss

The Philadelphia Eagles fans are known to be one of the most passionate fan bases in the NFL, if not the best, and their expression, manifestation, and preparation before the Super Bowl game were surely appreciative.

With passion comes exaggeration—the word is a perfect reflection of Eagles fans’ celebration this season. In every qualification, they topped their previous wins. The best example is the NFC championship victory celebration.

However, there is the dark side of wild parties: the vandalism, and the Eagles fans showed their dark side last night when they lost the Super Bowl to the Kansas City Chiefs.

What did the Philadelphia Eagles fans do last night?

The city of Philadelphia was prepared to contain the football fans by stationing riot police on every major road and avenue. Around 10:30 p.m. local time, the police radio scanner started annunciating several clashes between police and the enraged fans.

Eagles fans began their vandalism in downtown Philadelphia by smashing storefront windows, lampposts, and beer bottles. The police were stationed nearby, yet they struggled to control the fans.

The armed swat team has faced small explosives and fireworks and has had to respond with tear gas and rubber bullets. On social media, there were several videos of fans engaging in a street brawl with one another.

Whatever the scene all over the city, there were specific chants being uttered from Eagles fans: “f*** the Chiefs.” There were reports of multiple wounded fans as well as law enforcement officers.

Previously, when the MLB team Phillies lost in the World Series, the city witnessed such mischievous behavior by fans. This is nothing new to the Philadelphia police, as they had taken precautions last night knowing they would face a wild mob of enraged hooligans.

According to the most recent update, multiple shots were fired around 1 a.m. local time, but no major casualties have been reported. Philadelphia city planner Todd Sartini said, “Whether the fans desecrate city property to celebrate or to grieve the Eagles’ fates, my fellow municipal employees and I are prepared for the worst.”
