The man of the moment, Travis Kelce, celebrated after the end of what was a mixed game for him personally.
X user @Smivy, named Adam Smith, shared a photo on social media that seemed to suggest he and another person had snuck in to watch the event.
’10k my a**e’, he posted on the social media platform, accompanied by a photo of two men wearing products covered in Sky Sports logos.
The first person can be seen wearing a dark shirt and jeans, with a sweater tied around his waist, as well as a cap with the station’s logo.
The latter is seen wearing a similar cap, as well as a logo jersey, and both can be seen posing with a thumbs up inside the 65,000-seat Allegiant Stadium.
Meanwhile, it’s also notable that the pair are wearing what appear to be press 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.

In the VIP suite, which Kelce reportedly paid £792,000 for, she was joined by Blake Lively, rapper Ice Spice, parents Andrea and Scott and Kelce’s family.
The 34-year-old subsequently issued the challenge for his team to challenge for a third title next year, a feat never before achieved in the NFL.
