Taylor Swift is on her way to the grand event!
After a lot of guesswork, Gracie Hunt, the daughter of Kansas City Chiefs’ chairman and CEO Clark Hunt, learned that Swift, 34, is journeying from Tokyo to Las Vegas to watch her boyfriend Travis Kelce participate in the 2024 Super Bowl.
“She’s on her way! She’s on her way! We’re thrilled,” Gracie expressed at the Fanatics Super Bowl Party red carpet in Las Vegas on Saturday.
After the Chiefs secured their spot in Sunday’s championship match, there was speculation about whether Swift would be able to make it to the Feb. 11 NFL event on time, considering her four back-to-back Eras Tour shows in Tokyo, which concluded on Feb. 10.
The speculation about her attendance escalated leading up to the Super Bowl weekend, with the Embassy of Japan in Washington, D.C., even reassuring Swifties and NFL fans that despite Swift’s packed schedule, the 14-time Grammy winner could “comfortably” reach Sin City on a 12-hour flight, considering the 17-hour time difference from Tokyo to Las Vegas.
Gracie, 24, also mentioned to people that “a Chiefs Kingdom afterparty has been planned” if the Chiefs win, but she didn’t provide details on whether Swift and Kelce would attend together.
She has been vocal about her thoughts on Swift and Kelce ever since the power couple made their relationship public in September 2023.
Gracie had previously mentioned that it’s “special” to “see how happy they are.”
“Firstly, I think we’re all so thrilled to see two such amazing people happy,” Gracie said on the OutKick the Morning podcast in December. “I mean, it’s so easy for us and the entire world to cheer for them because they’re perfect for each other, and it’s been such a joy to watch this love story unfold.”
Swift has had a particularly hectic schedule in February, starting with the Feb. 4 Grammy Awards, where she won album of the year and best pop vocal album for Midnights, before performing four concerts from Feb. 7–10 in Japan.
Even after the Chiefs face off against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Swift’s schedule remains packed. At some point after the Super Bowl, the “Anti-Hero” singer will need to depart the United States to fly to Australia for her seven shows in Melbourne and Sydney on Feb. 16–26 to continue her Eras Tour, which is tentatively scheduled to run until the end of 2024.
When asked about the support of the Swifties and what it means to her and the Chiefs, Gracie only had positive things to say about Swift’s influence on the NFL.
“I’ve loved seeing women and girls develop a love for football,” she said. “I’ve grown up loving the sport my entire life, and Taylor has had a significant impact with her presence at Chiefs games. It’s so fun to have her now as a part of the Chiefs Kingdom.”
She added: “But also just to see the young girls in the stands with their signs because they know that [Swift] is now a fan of the game, so they’re fans too. Previously, about 49% of the NFL fan base was women, and that number is rapidly increasing. So we’re super excited for all the new Swifties to be a part of this game.” The Super Bowl will be Swift’s 13th Chiefs game. The singer has attended nine Chiefs victories and only three losses.
After the team’s most recent win against the Baltimore Ravens on Jan. 28, Kelce found Swift on the field and embraced and kissed her.
