The city of Philadelphia is taking no chances with their insane fanbase ahead of Sunday’s NFC Championship Game.
With the Eagles on the precipice of a Super Bowl appearance, the Philadelphia Police Dept. said it will grease traffic and light poles as part of its safety precautions across the city.
In a statement, Mayor Jim Kenney said that Philadelphians are encouraged to celebrate “safely and responsibly.”
“As the Mayor of this great city it is always a joy to see all Philadelphians united behind our beloved sports teams,” Kenney said. “We encourage fans to cheer on safely and responsibly and wish the Eagles good luck in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game.”
The mayor’s office said that the Philadelphia Police Department “will institute the practice of ‘greasing poles’ as a deterrent for climbing poles and light fixtures.”
The city will also have barricades placed in “key locations” to help control crowds.
It’s a tall task to control Eagles fans but it seems like the city is doing everything they can to try.
The Eagles will square off against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at 3 p.m. on FOX.
