PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The one Philadelphia bar that usually welcomes Kansas City Chiefs fans will not be opening on Super Bowl Sunday after all.
Big Charlie's Saloon, located on the 1900 block of South 11th Street in South Philadelphia, says it made the decision to close after realizing it would not be able to accommodate all the fans looking to watch the game there.
"It saddens me to say we will not be hosting the Super Bowl this year, we sold tickets very fast and had to turn our patrons away. So we don't want to do that, we can't accommodate everyone so we will just close for the night. I'm sorry again. Go Chiefs!" the bar posted on Twitter.
It was just days ago when Action News visited Big Charlie's as the bar was getting ready for the Super Bowl.
There were conflicted patrons who root for both the Chiefs and the Eagles and were preparing to watch the Super Bowl at the bar. They will now have to find another place to see the game.
The owner's love for the team started in 1970 when his dad bet on the Chiefs and they won the Super Bowl.
