New York: Taylor Swift fans all across the United States have suddenly become football aficionados, leaving their husbands and boyfriends perplexed by this newfound interest in the NFL. Is there some sort of rift in the space-time continuum?
Apparently not. Women aren’t urging their partners to attend the next Jets game due to any cosmic disturbances but rather because of Taylor Swift.
Many devoted Swifties are securing tickets for this weekend’s game in the hopes of catching a glimpse of their beloved singer.
Reportedly, Swift is set to make a return to the NFL scene at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Sunday night during the Jets’ matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Swift, who has been rumored to be in a relationship with Kansas City Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce, was spotted in Kansas City watching the Chiefs triumph over the Bears from a luxurious suite alongside Kelce’s mother, Donna.
However, following the intersection of the NFL and Swift worlds last Sunday, Swifties went into a frenzy, sparking a surge in jersey sales, memes, and media coverage.
One Swiftie, 28-year-old Mikala McCauley, disclosed that her husband had considered selling the tickets he had purchased for the game after Jets’ Aaron Rodgers sustained an injury. However, McCauley’s husband has now transformed the game night into a date night because she wanted to accompany him to the game just to see Taylor Swift.
McCauley even acquired a $67 Kelce jersey and has been scouring the internet in search of the red Chiefs jacket Swift sported last Sunday, as reported by Bloomberg.
“It’s amusing how the roles have reversed,” she remarked.
Swift, who is currently on hiatus from her tour until November, visited Kansas City to support Kelce and was frequently featured during the national broadcast of the game.
In the 24-hour period following her appearance, ticket sales for the Jets’ Sunday game doubled on StubHub, according to the company.
VividSeats, a ticketing website, has witnessed a 173% surge in web traffic for the Chiefs game, with increased demand for tickets to future home games as well.
Furthermore, Kelce’s jersey sales have experienced a remarkable upswing as the player garners a new fan base.
