Cologne The Kansas City Chiefs were enthusiastically received in their home country after winning the Super Bowl. Despite freezing temperatures, tens of thousands of people came to the mandatory victory parade. However, not everything went smoothly.
At sub-zero temperatures, Kansas City celebrated its Super Bowl heroes in a big parade. Tens of thousands of people lined the streets of the city on Wednesday, the championship team of the Football League NFL led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes celebrated on open buses and proudly presented the Vince Lombardi trophy. Important accessories for the players were mirrored ski goggles, thick bobble hats – and of course cold drinks.
According to US media reports, many schools in the city of Missouri, with a population of 500,000, were closed due to the parade, and the city council also adjourned a scheduled meeting. Master trainer Andy Reid promised the crowd that the celebrations would be repeated soon: “We’ll meet here again next year.”
However, apparently not everything went smoothly. Local media reported that a car broke a barrier in the morning and went on the parade route. Unconfirmed reports indicate that two people have been arrested.
Kansas won the 54th Miami Super Bowl 31:20 against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. It was the Chiefs’ second triumph after 1970.
