He has been seen around different soccer events and has visited many NFL teams as well. 

In February 2020, Ramsay visited M&T Bank Stadium. He kicked some field goals with Baltimore Ravens punter Sam Koch. But his alliance seems to be with the Chiefs. After the Chiefs won the division round, Gordon Ramsay congratulated them on Twitter.

It all started back in November 2019. Ramsay was about to open a restaurant in Kansas called ‘Gordon Ramsay Steak’. Before doing so, he paid a visit to the Arrowhead stadium. There he saw the field, met coaches and players, and even visited the Chiefs’ locker room. 

The Chiefs presented Gordon Ramsay with a number 19 jersey with his name on it. He even had a cook-off with one of Kansas City’s offensive tackles. Mitchell Schwartz took on the king of the kitchen. Both of them cooked a steak. Schwartz impressed Ramsay with his knowledge of the kitchen.
