KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Travis Kelce put the ball in Taylor Swift’s court and she ended up bringing it to Arrowhead Stadium.
The 12-time Grammy Award winner took advantage of an invitation from the All-Pro tight end to watch the Kansas City Chiefs play the Chicago Bears at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday. Swift was dressed in red and white as he watched from one of the glass-enclosed suites with Kelce’s mother, Donna, on a sun-filled afternoon in Kansas City.
She also got quite a show. Kelce caught a 3-yard TD pass in the third quarter, and the reigning Super Bowl champions posted a 41-10 victory.
Kelce didn’t speak to reporters afterward, but he was seen leaving Arrowhead with Swift by his side.

“He told me at the last minute” that Swift would be coming to the game, said Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who threw for 272 yards and three scores. “Some things with Trav, he says it and you don’t know if it’s true or not, he says it so calmly.”
Swift is on a break from her Eras Tour, which resumes on November 9 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Swift has always been reluctant to discuss her personal life in public, but rumors have swirled about the pop superstar and the footballer. They started when Kelce said on his “New Heights” podcast that he was disappointed he didn’t get the chance to meet Swift and gift her a friendship bracelet during her stop in Kansas City on her Eras Tour.
Then, during an appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show,” Kelce said, “I threw the ball in her court and told her, ‘I saw you rock the stage at Arrowhead. Maybe you should come see me rocking the stage at Arrowhead and see which one is a little more lit.’”
Just about everyone has been trying to figure out Swift and Kelce, even pestering his brother and Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce for details. He was asked about the possible relationship on 94.1 WIP in Philadelphia.
“I don’t really know what’s going on in Travis’ love life. I try to kind of keep his business his business and stay out of that world,” Jason Kelce said. “But having said that, I think he’s doing a great job and I think it’s all 100% true.”
Just about everyone in the Kansas City locker room made fun of their tight end and their latest celebrity fan Sunday, including coach Andy Reid, who joked, “I set them up.”
“I’m not a big Swifty,” Chiefs offensive lineman Trey Smith said. ‘But maybe she’s a good luck charm. Why not?”
