As one would expect, Rihanna was in a VIP suite to take in the big game.
According to Highsnobiety, the singer also made sure her fashion was on point for the occasion with a Louis Vuitton monogram football bag. The limited-edition item was created in commemoration of the 1998 World Cup.
She received a new item for her fashion collection as well. As shown below, a bundled-up RiRi holds up her custom Juventus shirt she was given at the game, giving her plenty to remember from her trip to Allianz.

Rihanna has attended a number of sports events over the years including NBA games and other football matchups. The singer isn’t married just yet as she’s still dating Saudi Arabian businessman Hassan Jameel, so most likely many athletes will continue to “shoot their shot” in attempts to impress the singer.
