Birds hold big pep rally for Philadelphia Eagles fans in London. Sharrie Williams reports during Action News at 4pm on October 25, 2018.

The pep rally featured a drumline, mascot Swoop, the Eagles Cheerleaders and beloved former players like Brent Celek and Jon Dorenbos.

"Eagles fans, they travel so well. My flight was packed, and I think every flight over the past week going from Philly to London has been all Eagles fans," Celek said.

"As cool as it is, I'm not shocked. This is how Philly rolls! I would be disappointed if it was anything less!" said Dorenbos. "It's not just in London, it's anywhere the Eagles are."

The turnout was massive. The local pub was filled completely with energized fans from all over.
