Taylor Swift touches down in Kansas City to cheer on Travis Kelce for her sixth game of the season

Go. Fight. Win! Taylor Swift jets back to Kansas City after some time in the Big Apple to watch Travis Kelce and the Chiefs take on the Buffalo Bills.

In her sixth NFL appearance of the season, Swift arrived at Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Chiefs, in a black peacoat with a black and red, vintage Westside Storey Kansas City sweater underneath. According to video posted on X, Swift was greeted in Kansas City by a cheering crowd outside of the stadium before heading into an elevator.

A photo posted by a verified Swift fan account on Instagram showed the singer smiling to fans as a golf cart with VIP signage took her into the stadium to her seat. Swift is seen taking a selfie with a fan in another photo shared on Instagram.

Swift, who was named TIME’s Person of the Year earlier this week, opened up about her relationship with the Chiefs tight end and how she’s embracing the sport.

“Football is awesome, it turns out,” she said. “I’ve been missing out my whole life.”

Kelce and Swift made their first public appearance together in Week 3 after she attended her first game at Arrowhead Stadium.

Swift sat in a suite next to Kelce’s mom, Donna, and cheered him on as the Chiefs beat the Chicago Bears. When asked about the hype from the NFL and the on-camera attention during the first couple of games, she told Time magazine that she’s not there for the publicity, “I don’t know if I’m being shown 17 times or once.”

She added: “I’m just there to support Travis. I have no awareness of if I’m being shown too much and pissing off a few dads, Brads, and Chads.”

Swift also shed light on her and Kelce’s relationship timeline, confirming that she and the All-Pro tight end were already together at that point. She said his attempts to give her his phone number via a friendship bracelet at her Eras Tour show, which he detailed on his New Heights podcast, is what initiated their connection.

The gesture from Kelce was “metal as hell,” Swift said.

“We started hanging out right after that,” she said. “So we actually had a significant amount of time that no one knew, which I’m grateful for, because we got to get to know each other. By the time I went to that first game, we were a couple. I think some people think that they saw our first date at that game? We would never be psychotic enough to hard launch a first date.”
