The Philadelphia Eagles have made it to the Super Bowl. A pair of blowout wins over the Giants and 49ers paved the way for a potential NFL championship in 2023.

While that news is welcomed among the Philly faithful, not everyone is so eager to see the Eagles in the big game. Particularly those working in hospitality roles in the Super Bowl’s host city.

SBLVII will be played at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. One local restaurant owner is already preparing his staff for “some of the most obnoxious, rude fans in the country.”

The owner has gone viral after he sent a memo to his staff members warning them of the invasion of Philadelphia fans that’s sure to come in just two short weeks. Here’s what it said.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The first team for the Super Bowl has just been decided. The Philadelphia Eagles and their fans will be in town to represent their city. 

With that being said, if any of you are from Philly, please don’t take this the wrong way, but Philly fans are some of the most obnoxious, rude fans in the country.

Blue collar, hardworking people. 

They are very passionate and love their sports and teams and will be here to bask in the moment.

As hospitality professionals, we need to make sure we show them a great time and make sure we prepare ourselves with their brashness. They will probably be challenging, but we will show them a great time. 

-Bob Mayo

Many around the NFL would agree with Bob, here.

Those Philly folks are known to get rowdy, most recently being seen egging 49ers fans and harassing Nick Bosa’s family ahead of the NFC Championship game.

But while they can be brutal to opposing fanbases, they also know how to have a good time.

The City of Brotherly Love became a party on Sunday night as thousands gathered outside the stadium to celebrate the win over San Francisco. While not all of the celebrations were safe, there’s no denying that Eagles fans know how to keep the party going.

Fans online were quick to comment on the now viral memo. Here’s what they were saying on social media.

One fan wrote, “He’s not wrong,” while another said, “Solid input from Mr. Mayo, here.”

This Eagles fan commented, “No one likes us, and we don’t care!”

Those Philly supporters will have a week off before their team takes on the Chiefs. The outcome of that game could largely determine those fans’ behavior on Super Bowl Sunday.
