Travis Kelce was mocked by fans for his clothing as he arrived at the Kansas Cit Chiefs game on Sunday, where his girlfriend Taylor Swift saw him play in the NFL for the first time.
Kelce was pictured arriving for the game against the Chicago Bears at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday wearing an oddly matching blue and white jacket and pants. Little did fans know at the time that Swift was also on his way to the stadium to sit in the stands next to his mother, Donna, for the game.
The Chiefs tweeted a picture and video of their tight end appearing and waving as fans cheered him on, but several fans on social media joked that his outfit made him look like he had been painting at home before the game.
But what Taylor Swift thinks or doesn’t think is a whole other question. Kelce, who won the Super Bowl with the Chiefs last year (and also in 2019), said this week that he was excited for the pop star to come and see him play in Kansas.
Now Swift has accepted the offer as the Chiefs play at home on Sunday, a weekend when she is not on tour.

Swift, 33, was pictured in the stands wearing a red and white jersey – the Chiefs’ colors. The team tweeted “Welcome to the Kingdom of the Chiefs, Taylor Swift” alongside a video of her cheering on the team.
She was seen on camera enthusiastically screaming and clapping before the game began, with Kelce being one of the star players for the Chiefs – the current Super Bowl champions.
Kelce broke his silence about his ties to Swift during an appearance on the Pat McAfee Show earlier this week, telling people not to listen to his brother Jason, who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles, when asked about his dating life became.
“It’s unbelievable how popular this is,” he revealed live on The Pat McAfee Show. “I think right now it’s like the old game at school, Telephones, where everyone just whispers in each other’s ears and hears random things… no one really knows what’s going on.
“Especially when Jason Kelce goes on national television and tells both sides… he doesn’t know, it’s true, it’s this and that. He goes on Thursday Night Football and the first thing he says is ‘Catching Kelce’ , and then, not even a week later, he tells everyone that it’s 100 percent true.
“The guy is ridiculous, he can’t stay out of the damn headlines.” Yesterday he was on the show and said that everyone thinks he’s the Ian Rapoport of my dating relationships… everyone, please stop picking my brother after mine Love life to ask.”
Then it was Kelce’s turn to spill the news from the horse’s mouth as he revealed that he had spoken to the pop star – and given her a very tempting invitation.
“It’s life, baby,” he continued. “I threw it out there, I threw the ball in their court.” I said, “I saw you rocking the stage at Arrowhead. Maybe you need to come and watch me rock the stage at Arrowhead and see which one is a little brighter. We’ll see what happens in the near future. Okay, Nowwwwwww.’

The news was met with loud cheers from the judges on McAfee’s show and the team wished him good luck in his search for music’s most famous face.
Until Thursday afternoon, all news about the possible romance between two-time Super Bowl winner Kelce, 33, and pop sensation Swift, also 33, were either rumors spread in the media or by his brother Jason.
