NFL fans invade Super Bowl LVIII field during 49ers-Chiefs game

Typically, 22 people are on the field during a football game, but on one play, 24 people were on the field.

In the third quarter of Super Bowl LVIII, unruly fans invaded the stadium. The fans appeared to be shirtless, but they also didn’t seem to get very far.

On the San Francisco side of the field, at least one of the men was captured on video being quickly surrounded by a large crowd of venue staff, with no light at the end of the tunnel.

He threw himself down and slid onto the grass, then was piled on top of several staff members.

Another man was also detained.

The delay came just before Harrison Butker set a record for the longest field goal in Super Bowl history with a 57-yarder to cut the lead over the Chiefs to 10-6.

Butker broke the record of 55 yards actually set in the second quarter by San Francisco’s Jake Moody. The previous record entering Sunday was 54 yards, set by Steve Christie of the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVIII 30 years ago.

The fans were subdued relatively quickly and the match proceeded with little hesitation.

The 49ers had a good run, but they thwarted a punt in the bottom of the third and the Chiefs responded with their first touchdown to take a 13-10 lead.
