Sports matches often feature surprise celebrity guests, whether they’re tennis champions or musicians. However, the sight of Kim Kardashian attending a football match brought a unique twist to the scene.
During Arsenal’s Europa League last-16 second leg clash against Sporting CP, one of the world’s most prominent social media influencers made an appearance. She shared a snapshot on her Instagram story, causing quite a stir on Twitter, as she mentioned she was present to film a documentary at the Emirates Stadium.
Inside the stadium, she documented her support for the team and their merchandise through a series of Instagram Stories. Unexpectedly, she also posted a picture of her son Saint wearing Arsenal’s third kit.
Kim Kardashian’s love for Arsenal is no secret; she’s previously been spotted wearing the club’s home shirt at her son Saint’s birthday party in January. Yet, her presence at the Europa League game added an intriguing element, with Twitter humorously dubbing it a ‘Kardashian curse’ following the team’s unfortunate defeat.
Amid the frenzy around the ‘Kardashian curse,’ the 41-year-old reality TV star was thrilled to be there for her son’s special outing. She captured various emotions displayed by Saint throughout the game: enthusiastic cheers when Arsenal took the lead with Granit Xhaka’s goal and moments of dismay as the match led to a tense penalty shootout.
