Taylor Swift spent Christmas Day cheering on boyfriend Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs. Are her New Year’s Eve plans similar?
Swift was photographed cheering on the Chiefs in the player’s box at Arrowhead Stadium on Dec. 31. She wore a white jacket, emblazoned with the Chiefs logo, that had fans seeing double.
Her jacket appears to match one worn by Kelce last week as he arrived to the home game against the Raiders.
Time’s 2023 Person of the Year has attended four of the last Chiefs games while on a touring break.
Swift resumes her international “Eras Tour” on Feb. 7, kicking off her 2024 run of shows in Tokyo. She’ll play four shows in the capital city, concluding Feb. 10 — the day before the 2024 Super Bowl.
Kickoff for the Chiefs-Bengals game occurred at 4:25 p.m. ET. Both teams are going into the game fighting to clinch their bids for the playoffs, which start Jan. 13.
The Chiefs and Bengals last played during the 2023 AFC championship Jan. 29. A last-minute field goal led the Chiefs to a 23-20 victory, putting the team in the Super Bowl. They went on to also defeat the Philadelphia Eagles by three points, 38-35.
Swift and Kelce started hanging out before the NFL season began, but the singer first attended a Chiefs game on Sept. 24, when the team played the Chicago Bears.
Before Sunday, Swift had attended eight Chiefs games, and the team’s record with Swift in attendance is 5-3. But Kansas City’s recent losses have reversed early murmurings of Swift being Kelce’s good luck charm.
Swift last attended the Christmas Day matchup between the Chiefs and the Las Vegas Raiders alongside her parents, Andrea and Scott Swift, and her brother, Austin, who fittingly dressed up as Santa Claus.
Swift wore all red with a matching Santa Claus hat emblazoned with a giant 87 — Kelce’s jersey number — echoing a headline-making friendship bracelet she wore during the Chiefs-Chargers matchup Oct. 22.
The Raiders defeated the Chiefs 20-14.
