Taylor Swift is going to the big game!. After considerable speculation, Gracie Hunt, daughter of Kansas City Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt, confirmed that Swift, 34, will fly from Tokyo to Las Vegas to watch her boyfriend Travis Kelce compete in the 2024 Super Bowl.
“She’s coming!” She’s coming! “We’re excited,” Gracie said on the red carpet of the Fanatics Super Bowl Party in Las Vegas, Saturday. People worried if Swift will be able to attend the Feb. 11 NFL event after her four-consecutive Eras Tour gigs in Tokyo, which concluded on Feb. 10.
The attendance speculation reached a fever pitch leading up to Super Bowl weekend, with the Embassy of Japan in Washington, D.C. even assuring Swifties and NFL fans that, despite Swift’s hectic schedule, the 14-time Grammy winner could “comfortably” arrive in Sin City on a 12-hour flight with a 17-hour time difference from Tokyo to Las Vegas.
Gracie, 24, also said that “there will be a Chiefs Kingdom afterparty that’s been planned” if the Chiefs win, but she didn’t say if Swift and Kelce would go together. She has been outspoken about her feelings toward Swift and Kelce since the power couple announced their relationship in September 2023. Gracie earlier stated that it is “special” to “see how happy they are.”
“First of all, I think we’re all so excited to see two such phenomenal people happy,” Gracie remarked on the OutKick the Morning podcast in December. “I mean, it’s so easy for us to cheer for and for the entire world to cheer for because they’re wonderful for each other, and it’s just been so fun to watch this love story unfold.”
Swift had an especially hectic February itinerary, beginning with the Grammy Awards on February 4, where she won album of the year and best pop vocal album for Midnights, followed by four shows in Japan from February 7-10.
Even when the Chiefs face the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Swift’s schedule stays relentless. The “Anti-Hero” singer will need to depart the United States after the Super Bowl to go to Australia for seven gigs in Melbourne and Sydney on February 16-26 to resume her Eras Tour, which is scheduled to run until the end of 2024.
When asked what the Swifties’ support means to her and the Chiefs, Gracie only spoke positively about Swift’s impact on the NFL. “I’ve loved watching women and girls fall in love with football,” she told PEOPLE. “I’ve always loved the sport, and Taylor’s presence at Chiefs games has had a great impact on me. It’s great to have her as part of Chiefs Kingdom.”
She said, “But also to see the little girls in the stands with their signs because they know [Swift] is now enjoying the game, so they’re enjoying it as well. Previously, women made up approximately 49% of the NFL fan base, and this figure is constantly expanding. So we’re quite excited for all of the new Swifties to participate in this game.
