Ted Lasso viewers think of Sudeikis as a coach on screens, but in real life he's just another fan! Having grown up near Kansas City, the actor doesn't hide his love for the Chiefs — and the team loves him back. In September 2023, Travis Kelce raved to PEOPLE about his love for Ted Lasso.

"I’ve waited for this day to come for my whole life. You’ve brought me so much joy. It’s been so fun to watch you play every Sunday. Watching you has brought me closer to my family and friends," the Saturday Night Live star captioned a photo of herself on the field holding a Patrick Mahomes jersey.
Richardson may hail from Kentucky, but his Kansas-born wife Kristin has swayed his football preferences.
"I grew up in Kentucky so I didn't have a pro football team to root for so I just started rooting for my favorite players," the Backstreet Boy told KSHB 41, a Kansas City news station. "It started with Terry Bradshaw, then Joe Montana and when he left San Francisco to come to Kansas City, that's when we started dating ... and I've been a fan ever since."
In January 2023, Riggle shared a photo and a video of himself in Chiefs gear to congratulate the team on their successful season.
