For the third time in less than a month, Taylor Swift became the Kansas City Chiefs’ good luck charm, as they celebrated a triumphant win over the Denver Broncos, emerging victorious with a score of 19 to 8 on Thursday night.
Despite dealing with an ankle injury that initially raised doubts about his availability, Travis Kelce, the Chiefs’ star player, took to the field and made an impact. By halftime, Kelce had already accumulated 109 receiving yards, concluding the game with an impressive 124 yards.
Swift’s presence at Arrowhead Stadium was a notable highlight of the evening. Throughout the game, she enjoyed the company of Kelce’s inner circle, including his parents Donna and Ed Kelce and Brittany Mahomes, the wife of his close friend and teammate, quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
This isn’t the first time Taylor Swift has been spotted at Arrowhead Stadium to support Travis Kelce. Their burgeoning romance has garnered significant attention from sports fans and Swifties alike. The pair was first seen together on September 24, leaving a game in Kelce’s car. On that night, Swift watched the game from Kelce’s suite alongside his mother, with video footage capturing their shared moments of laughter and camaraderie. The singer’s appearance followed an invitation from Kelce, who expressed his desire for her to witness him on the football field during The Pat McAfee Show podcast.
Following Swift’s appearance at the game, Kelce shared his feelings for the Grammy-winning artist on his podcast, “New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce Presented by Wave Sports + Entertainment.” He expressed his amusement at seeing the slow-motion chest bumps, high fives with his mom, and the joy among Chiefs fans at Swift’s presence. He acknowledged that it was a memorable game and appreciated the positive comments made about Swift by friends and family.
The NFL also embraced Taylor Swift’s connection to the Chiefs, with NFL social media accounts filled with Swift-themed references. The league even featured a Swift-themed ad for the Chiefs’ game against the New York Jets, using her hit song “Welcome to New York.” The artist’s attendance at Chiefs games has brought a sense of excitement and success, with the team achieving a 2-0 record when Swift is present.

While the NFL’s emphasis on the Kelce-Swift connection has sparked discussions about overdoing it, Jason Kelce, Travis’s brother and a fellow NFL player, acknowledged that they are merely trying to have fun with it. He humorously admitted that his personal life was no longer so personal due to the attention generated by their high-profile connection.
Swift’s presence at Chiefs games has become a delightful storyline in the world of sports, creating a unique blend of star power and football action that fans have grown to enjoy. It seems that Taylor Swift has truly become a fortunate charm for the Chiefs, enhancing the excitement and energy surrounding their games.
