Tickets for the New York Jets hosting the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night have increased by almost 50 percent after it was announced that Taylor Swift will be there.
On Wednesday night, reports surfaced that Swift will be at MetLife Stadium to watch her rumored boyfriend Travis Kelce play for the Chiefs.
According to TickPick, many more fans now want to be there.
In the 24 hours following news of Swift’s presence, the entry price for tickets on the resale site increased 43%, from $83 to $119.
TickPick also says that last Sunday’s game – where Swift saw Kelce play for the first time, in a 41-10 win over the Chicago Bears – marked the highest number of tickets sold in a single day so far this season for the Chiefs sold.

Swift’s expected rise has now caused ticket prices to increase by approximately 43%
For Sunday’s game in the Big Apple, ticket prices had dropped slightly in recent weeks.
The game was supposed to pit Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers against the Super Bowl champions and Patrick Mahomes, but Rodgers tore his Achilles tendon in the fourth snap of his first game for his new team.
Since then, the Jets have struggled with Zach Wilson at quarterback, losing their last two games.
Kelce, meanwhile, has remained relatively coy about what’s going on with Swift.
On his podcast, which he co-hosts with brother Jason of the Philadelphia Eagles, he said: “Shout out to Taylor for quitting. That was pretty rowdy.
“I just loved that everyone in the suite had only good things to say about her. The friends and family. She looked great, everyone talked about her in a great light.
‘Plus, the day went perfectly for Chiefs fans. We script it all, ladies and gentlemen. It was just impressive.
‘To see the slow motion chest bumps, to see the high fives with mom, to see the Chiefs kingdom all excited that she was there, that s*** was absolutely hysterical, it was definitely a game I will remember, that’s for sure,” Travis added. “And then we ended up just sneaking off in the getaway car…”
“Shout out to Taylor for coming over and seeing me rocking out on stage.”
