Fly Eagles Fly! Fans send their beloved Birds off to Super Bowl LVII with unrivaled support
PHILADELPHIA - The Super Bowl countdown is officially on! Just one week from today, the Eagles will be stepping onto the field - and excitement is at an all-time high across the Philadelphia area.
Fans geared up for the Big Game as they filled Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday before the Eagles take flight to Arizona.
"We’ve had season tickets in the family for over 60 years and this is just great to go to the Super Bowl," said Dan Pasciullo.
The Birds will be taking on former head coach Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs on February 12.
- Philadelphia bars, restaurants slammed with reservations ahead of Super Bowl
- Eagles center Jason Kelce and his pregnant wife are bringing her OB-GYN to the Super Bowl
- New Jersey school district grants 2-hour delayed opening Monday following Super Bowl
Lines formed early for the sold out send-off featuring special on-field performances by the Eagles cheerleaders, Drumline and D.J. Diamond Kuts.
"To show them spirit and give them confidence, so we can win the Super Bowl," said Carlina Pasciullo. "We got to boost them up!"
The crowd roared during the lively celebration when coaches and players took the stage, including Jalen Hurts, Jason Kelce, Fletcher Cox and Lane Johnson.
"If you’re going to Arizona, be loud like you always are – Go Birds!" shouted Head Coach Nick Sirianni.
Eagles fever is already through the roof, but with a week to go it's safe to say there will be no shortage of celebrations leading up to kickoff - and hopefully long after!
Pajuah Jones is trying to make it to the Super Bowl, and said it’s going to cost her group tens of thousands of dollars.
"The flight, three nights stay plus the tickets is going to cost us ten grand per person," Jones said. "I think it’s worth it because we don’t always win Super Bowls, and to be part of history… What is money?"
