Taylor Swift was clearly ready for more football on Sunday, as were Deadpool, Wolverine, and Ant-Man.
More on the Marvel stars in a moment.
As expected/highly anticipated, Swift was among the fans at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Sunday night to cheer on Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs as they played on the road against the New York Jets.
Swift, who was recently introduced to Kelce and sparked the creativity of brand marketers everywhere, was shown on NBC about 30 minutes before the game, alongside Blake Lively, Lively’s husband Ryan Reynolds (of Deadpool fame) and Sophie Turner.
Other stars depicted in the game include “Free Guy” director Shawn Levy, along with Reynolds, Hugh Jackman (Wolverine from the “X-Men” films), and Paul Rudd (“Ant-Man”), and for those who desperately miss Sunday “Caliphate,” actor Jeremy Strong.
Last week, Swift was at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, sitting next to Kelsey’s mother, Donna, as they watched the Chiefs pull off a 41-10 win over the Chicago Bears. After the game, the “Cruel Summer” singer was seen leaving the court with Kelsey.
The expectation that the 12-time Grammy winner will appear again at this weekend’s game has sent ticket prices up more than 40%, according to TickPick, an online marketplace.
Swift’s NFL interest has been a hit in more ways than one. Kelsey’s shirt sales saw a “nearly 400% spike in sales” on Monday, Fanatics previously told CNN.
Even TV ratings saw an increase. Last weekend’s game was “highest among female demographics across” various age groups, according to diverse.
The final score was Chiefs 23-20 over Jets.
With Swift in the audience, everyone won.
