MINNEAPOLIS — Operators of the Minneapolis stadium that hosted Super Bowl LII have some seats to replace, including one taken by a Philadelphia Eagles fan who was spotted with a stolen seat at the airport.
Video of the fan with his purple seat at U.S. Bank Stadium’s coat check had generated about 185,000 views on Facebook as of Wednesday morning. The fan was wearing an Eagles hat and jacket.
A traveler later snapped a photo of the man with his seat souvenir strapped to his carry-on suitcase at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority says its security team is investigating the theft, the Star Tribune reported.
Besides the stolen seat, the agency says a number of damaged seats will be repaired or replaced immediately. Zak Fick, a Vikings fan in attendance, told the Star Tribune he saw Eagles fans breaking three seats following Philadelphia’s Super Bowl victory over New England.
