Chiefs supporters in Indiana donate $1,600 to charity as they celebrate Super Bowl 58



Indianapolis, Indiana – After the Kansas City Chiefs prevailed in a close overtime game on Sunday, supporters rejoiced for their team’s second straight Super Bowl victory.

In a game that almost went into double overtime, Chiefs supporters were glued to their seats as Patrick Mahomes guided the club to a 25-22 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers.

These supporters have faith in Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and the Chiefs’ ability to win in the closing seconds.

“The season’s been a little crazy you know. It looked like we weren’t gonna do much. We lost six games this year which is the most Mahomes has lost before,” J.R. Dover, a group organizer with Kansas City Chiefs Fans in Indiana. “But they pulled it off in the playoffs and it has been a lot of fun having the Swifties join in the Chiefs Kingdom and it’s kinda grown into this bigger and bigger thing and it’s nationwide now.”

The Chiefs fans in Indiana were passionate about more than just football during this game.

Throughout the season, the team raised funds for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, and they had raised $1,100 of their $1,500 target going into the season’s last game.

“We’re supporting Pancreatic Cancer Action Network for the second year in a row. We’re trying to top our goal from last year,” Dover said. “We raised $1,000 during the season last year.”

In addition to surpassing their target and shattering their record, the organization raised an additional $500 during the Super Bowl alone.

Taylor Swift was present for the match. In observance of the custom of exchanging friendship bracelets during the pop singer’s Eras Tour, Chiefs supporters in Indianapolis exchanged them at the watch party.
Swift sat with famous members of the Kelce family, including brother Jason and mother Donna Kelce.
Swift was joined at the event by rapper Ice Spice and actress Blake Lively.

The Chiefs have won four Super Bowls, making them the seventh team to do it. They join the likes of the New England Patriots, who are the second club to win the Super Bowl six times, and the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are the first team to win it six times.

The Chiefs join the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants in the four-win club, while the 49ers and Dallas Cowboys have five victories each.
