Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift made their public debut on September 24 during the Chiefs vs. Chicago Bears game. Swift has attended a total of 12 games, with the Chiefs winning nine and losing three.


When the Super Bowl is over and the 2023 NFL season is consigned to the history books, it is hard to conclude that Taylor Swift’s name won’t feature prominently in the story of the season.


On September 8, when the Kansas City Chiefs started their defense of their Super Bowl title with a loss to Detroit Lions, the very idea of Swift and her ‘squad’ rocking up week after week to Kansas City games would have been crazy.


Travis Kelce missed that Lions game injured but deep behind the scenes, the early days of a romance that would grip America and enrapture the rest of the world was already underway.He and Swift had been hanging out quietly, meeting in New York and going unnoticed after he put a mischievous appeal out to her via his New Heights podcast that he hosts with brother Jason.


After watching Taylor perform at Arrowhead on July 8, the Chiefs star tried to meet her backstage and give her his number on a friendship bracelet, only to be denied. On July 26, he told Jason on the podcast: ‘She doesn’t talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings. So I was a little butthurt – she doesn’t meet anybody or at least she didn’t want to meet me.
