The action might have been on the gridiron during Sunday night’s NFL game, but NBC didn’t waste any opportunity to put the spotlight on the Kansas City Chiefs’ most famous fan up in the suites.
NBC cameras caught her in a suite alongside other famous faces, including Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, Hugh Jackman, Sophie Turner and filmmaker Shawn Levy. She was seen celebrating and cheering as the Chiefs scored a touchdown against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium in the first quarter, among other moments.
In addition, NBC aired trailers for her upcoming concert film, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour, which opens Oct. 13, and cut to footage of Times Square, where video highlights of Swift’s Eras Tour was showing on one of the giant screens.
The NFL also got in on the action, posting images of Swift at the game.
A few days before the game, NBC used Swift’s song “Welcome to New York” in a promo for the game. The caption on the X (formerly Twitter) post read: “Taylor Made for Sunday Night.”
Also airing during the game was one of the State Farm ads that Kelce appears in alongside teammate Patrick Mahomes and Jake From State Farm (actor Kevin Miles) — who, incidentally, was seen Sunday’s Philadelphia Eagles game sitting next to Kelce’s mom, Donna, whose other son, Jason Kelce, plays for the Eagles.
Swift also was at last Sunday’s Chiefs game against the Chicago Bears at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, where she was spotted in a suite alongside Kelce’s mom. Unlike last week’s game, where Swift wore red — the color of the Chiefs — the singer arrived Sunday night in a long-sleeved black top, black jacket, denim shorts and black boots.
Swift and Kelce have not confirmed the rumors they are dating. However, Kelce said Swift “looked amazing” on his New Heights With Jason and Travis Kelce podcast last week.
“Everybody was talking about her and in a great light,” he said. “And on top of that, you know, the day went perfect for Chiefs fans. Of course, we script it all, ladies and gentlemen.”
Swift is currently on a break from her Eras Tour, which resumes Nov. 9 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Kelce had tried — unsuccessfully — to give Swift a friendship bracelet when her Eras Tour hit Kansas City. She also performed three concerts at MetLife Stadium in May.
A spokesperson for StubHub, a resale ticket marketplace, said last week that “since Swift’s appearance at the Chiefs game Sunday, the Jets have sold more tickets for their game against the Chiefs in a single day since the season started — by more than double,” according to Town & Country magazine.
Incidentally, Swift, a Philadelphia native, told fans at a Philly concert earlier this year that she is an Eagles fan.
