Paul Rudd, Hulk Hogan and More: Here Are All the Celebrity Fans of the 2021 Super Bowl Teams
The Kansas City Chiefs will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, Feb. 7, in Tampa, Florida
Chiefs: Paul Rudd
Paul Rudd has deep roots in Kansas City and has long supported the city’s sports teams. In fact, he was named a spirit leader for the Chiefs ahead of the 2020 AFC Championship game at Arrowhead Stadium.
Chiefs: John Amos
Actor John Amos once aspired to a career in football, and actually tried out for the Kansas City Chiefs twice, according to the Kansas City Star.
Chiefs: Eric Stonestreet
Like Rudd, Eric Stonestreet was also on hand to celebrate during the 2020 AFC Championship game at Arrowhead Stadium. He joined the team in the locker room after the game.
Chiefs: Melissa Etheridge
Melissa Etheridge is a local, and has been a presence at many games — including in 2019 when she performed at the Chiefs' AFC Championship game.
Chiefs: Rob Riggle
Rob Riggle's connection to the Chiefs goes back decades: he grew up in Kansas, eventually attending University of Kansas. He and some of the team's other superstar fans (namely, Rudd) frequently appear in media for the team.
Chiefs: Henry Cavill
Though actor Henry Cavill is a Brit, he’s become quite the Kansas City fan. He explained on radio program The Rich Eisen Show that he “realized I had to choose a team” as he began to spend more time in America. “I figured Superman’s from Kansas. I was playing Superman at the time. It just kind of made sense to me,” he explained, according to 247 Sports.
Chiefs: Jason Sudeikis
Another Kansas native, Jason Suedikis has been a longtime fan of nearby Missouri's pro sports team.
Buccaneers: Nick Carter
The former Backstreet Boy spent part of his childhood growing up near Tampa, and is a superfan of the Buccaneers. "We did it," he wrote on social media after the team secured a Super Bowl spot.
Buccaneers: Dick Vitale
ESPN host Dick Vitale, who has a home in Florida, is a longtime fan of the Buccaneers, and has been celebrating ever since the team won the NFC Championship. "Trust me ... the Bucs will win the Super Bowl," he assured in a Twitter video.
Buccaneers: Hulk Hogan
Hulk Hogan is such a big Buccaneers fan that he visited the team's training camp back in 2018, meeting and posing for pictures with players.
Buccaneers: Gisele Bündchen
The supermodel's new Buccaneers fandom is obvious: she's married to the quarterback! Tom Brady left the New England Patriots after two decades last year, joining the Buccaneers and moving Bündchen and their family to Tampa.
