Meanwhile, NFL ratings have received a boost as of late thanks to Taylor Swift. Although Swift missed a few games including a recent Chiefs vs. Dolphins matchup in Germany, she has been showing support for new flame Travis Kelce even from afar. The pop star threw a reported watch party at her New York City apartment on Nov. 5 and her support may have paid off because the Chiefs beat the Dolphins 21-14.
Swift has been spotted cheering on Kelce at several home games including a Thursday Night Football game in October. Does Swift plan to attend tonight’s Chiefs vs. Eagles game? Unfortunately for Swifties, the pop star won’t be there to watch Travis and the Chiefs face his brother, Jason Kelce, and the Philadelphia Eagles in person. Swift is currently back on tour and has a show scheduled for Nov. 20.
Tickets for the game are in high-demand. Currently, the cheapest tickets are priced at around $243, while the most expensive tickets cost more $1,400. Tickets are selling fast but they’re around $100 cheaper than they were last week, so if you want to be there in person, it’s best to grab your tickets early (save $10 off eligible purchases of $250+ at Seat Geek with code: BILLBOARD10.
