Travis Kelce has joked about the cost of bringing his family and friends to Super Bowl LVIII, admitting he’s “losing all this money” ahead of Sunday’s game in Las Vegas.
Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs are preparing for their fourth Super Bowl appearance in five years on Sunday, where they will look to become the first team to retain him in nearly 20 years.
The Chiefs tight end will be cheered at Allegiant Stadium by an army of friends and family, including his brother Jason, his mother Donna and, of course, his girlfriend Taylor Swift.
However, Donna recently claimed she won’t be in one of the venue’s VIP suites this weekend as they cost “multi-million dollars,” with Swift and other celebrities expected to pay up to $2.5 million for the luxury. in Sin City.
Travis Kelce joked about the cost of taking his family and friends to Super Bowl LVIII.
Kelce’s mother, Donna, said he won’t be in a VIP suite with his girlfriend Taylor Swift because they cost “multi-million dollars.”
But Travis told his brother Jason this week that he’s still spending a fortune to get game tickets for his inner circle.
But on the latest episode of his and Jason’s New Heights podcast, Travis still joked that he’s spending a fortune to make sure his inner circle at least has a ticket to Sunday’s game.
“I’m not really doing much more than just counting how much money I’m spending on this damn Super Bowl for my family and friends to come,” he said.
“Just making sure I’m on top of those finances and losing all this money.”
Unlike when he watched his son play at Arrowhead countless times in the past, Donna thinks she’ll mingle with fans in Las Vegas for Super Bowl LVIII instead of taking a seat in a VIP suite next to Swift.
Speaking on the TODAY show, mother of the Kelce family said the cost of the VIP suites is too much and she has a regular ticket to the game.
‘“You can understand that the boxes in Las Vegas are worth several million dollars, so I have the feeling that I am not in a box, but in the stands,” he said.
“As far as I know, I’m in the stands with everyone else because it’s an expensive Super Bowl.”
Kelce and the Chiefs try to make history in Las Vegas on Sunday, with no team winning back-to-back Super Bowls since the New England Patriots in 2005.
However, as they seek a first championship in nearly 30 years, Travis believes all the pressure is on the 49ers this weekend.
Kelce and the Chiefs look to become the first back-to-back Super Bowl champions since 2005 this weekend.
But he believes the pressure is on the 49ers as they look to end a 29-year Super Bowl drought.
“I feel like until you win you just feel the pressure and the desire and the desire,” the Chiefs tight end told his brother Jason on his New Heights podcast before Sunday’s game.
‘Don’t get me wrong, I think I want this one more than the first one. So I feel like it’s how you build it in your mind.
‘For me, it’s not so much pressure, it’s just exciting because of the challenge at hand. I’ve been to some of these big games and there’s no other game out there, and there’s no other feeling than being on the field and making plays in the Super Bowl. There’s just no better feeling than going out there and finding a way to win with your guys.
“I’m more excited about the challenge than feeling the pressure of trying to turn back, although I want to be at the level of NFL players and teams that have done it.”
