- Ticket prices were as high as £18,000 for the match, won by Chiefs in overtime
- Mecole Hardman delivered the deciding touchdown to give his side the title
- The fans showed off their play on social media and didn’t appear to get caught
Two NFL fans appeared to sneak into the Super Bowl dressed as Sky Sports staff on Sunday night.
Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl in dramatic fashion in Las Vegas, beating the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 with the game going into overtime and Mecole Hardman delivering the deciding touchdown.
In what is one of the most in-demand sporting events in the calendar year, millions watched on television as Travis Kelce screamed in the face of his head coach Andy Reid, nearly knocking the 65-year-old off his feet and having to be hauled away.
The pair made up in the post-match celebrations, however, and Kelce locked lips with superstar girlfriend Taylor Swift as his side lifted the title in Sin City.
With the demand to catch a glimpse of the game high, the demand for tickets was even higher, sold for anywhere from around £5,500 to over £18,000. For some, however, there were other options.

Man-of-the-moment Travis Kelce celebrated following the end of what was a mixed game for him personally
X user @Smivy, going by the name of Adam Smith, shared a photo on social media that appeared to suggest he and another person had snuck their way into watch the event.
’10k my a**e,’ he posted on the social media platform, accompanied by a photo of two men wearing merchandise plastered with Sky Sports logos.
The first person can be seen earing a dark shirt and jeans, with a jumper tied around their waist, as well as a cap with the broadcaster’s logo on.
The second is seen wearing a similar cap, as well as a jumper with the logo on, and both can be seen posing with their thumbs up inside the 65,000-capacity Allegiant Stadium.
Also notable, meanwhile, is that the pair are wearing what appear to be media passes for Sky Sports workers, as well as Sky Sports lanyards, suggesting they posed as Sky Sports workers to gain entry to the Super Bowl.
‘What a jib. Greatest of all time maybe?’ one X user replied. Another said: ‘Just got out of bed to applaud you sir.’
Kelce and superstar girlfriend Taylor Swift locked lips on the field following the end of the game in Las Vegas
Kelce told reporters he felt ‘on top of the world’ after winning a second straight Super Bowl and celebrating by kissing Taylor Swift on the field. The singer had raced back to Las Vegas from Japan and four straight Eras Tour shows, the last of which was on Saturday night, to cheer him on.
She was joined in VIP suite – that Kelce reportedly paid £792,000 for – by Blake Lively, rapper Ice Spice, parents Andrea and Scott and Kelce’s family.
Afterwards, the 34-year-old threw down the gauntlet for his team to challenge for a three-peat next year – a feat never managed before in the NFL.
