The San Francisco 49ers faced off against the Kansas City Chiefs this year, with the Chiefs successfully defending their title after an exhilarating overtime period. The match was held at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, a venue hosting up to 65,000 fans, though two fans brought unwanted attention onto themselves.

During the game, two young men stripped their shirts off and began running on the pitch, dodging the attempts of the venue staff and security guards to capture them. Ultimately, their antics ended as they were overpowered and brought back down to pitch level.

While their mischief was not broadcasted, their aim was achieved as photos and videos of their escapade quickly inundated social media. Annotations scrawled on their chests and backs were visible in some of this footage, with some interruptions being hashtags or related to Instagram.

It remains uncertain if the men faced charges or what potential consequences they may suffer for storming the field. However, circulating videos online show the shirtless fans being escorted from the stadium in handcuffs.
