Ever since Taylor Swift made her surprise debut to support Travis Kelce at that fateful Kansas City Chiefs game in September 2023, football fans and Swifties alike have been glued to the TV, speculating when and where she'll pop up next. Swift has been spotted supporting her new boyfriend, Chiefs tight end Kelce, in the VIP suite at Chiefs games as often as possible throughout the past four months — but there's one game in particular that fans are particularly eager to see if she attends: Super Bowl 2024.
Super Bowl LVIII takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada, on February 11, 2024, and the two teams who will go head-to-head for the big game have finally been determined. After beating the Baltimore Ravens and the Detroit Lions, respectively, the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers will take the field and face off during football's biggest night.
The Chiefs beat the Ravens 17-10 on Sunday, January 28, winning the AFC Championship Game for the fourth time in five years and advancing to Super Bowl LVIII. But we all know the Super Bowl is more than just about football; it's also a star-studded spectacle, mainly thanks to the famed halftime show.
Usher is this year's Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show performer, a headlining set that Apple Music teases has been “30 years in the making.” It seems as though every celebrity on Earth made their way to Las Vegas to see Usher's 100-show residency (which ended on December 2, 2023), so will it even be possible to spot Taylor Swift in what's expected to be an extra-celeb-heavy crowd? Will Swift even attend the Super Bowl in the first place?
Let's talk about schedules. After the Grammys on Feb. 5, Swift will resume the Eras World Tour, heading to Japan's Tokyo Dome on Wednesday, Feb. 7. for a four-night run — so Swift will be in Tokyo the literal day before the Super Bowl. Could she make it from Tokyo to Las Vegas to cheer on
her man the Chiefs, now that they have won the championship and secured a slot in the Super Bowl? The time difference does work in her favor, and she could feasibly arrive in Las Vegas late Saturday or Sunday morning. It's basically just a matter of logistics and making sure her much-talked-about private jet has enough fuel. TBD.
But Swift's jet is not the only plane we're all talking about. According to local newspaper Kansas City Star, American Airlines is reportedly adding seven new nonstop flights between Kansas and Las Vegas for the Super Bowl February 8-13, and, in true Taylor Swift fashion, they have added some easter eggs in their tracking. The flight departing from Kansas City International Airport to the Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas on February 10 has been allocated the number 1989 in honor of Taylor Swift’s famous album (and birth year), while a returning flight to KCI on February 12 has been given the number 87 in reference to Travis Kelce's jersey number.
For all you non-football fans, this isn't Travis Kelce's first time playing the Super Bowl; Kelce has two Super Bowl rings already. The Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles last year, during which Kelce faced off against his big brother Jason. Now that the Chiefs have made it all the way again, those NFL cameras will surely find Swift in the stands if she makes it to Kansas from Tokyo, jet lag be damned.
