The Story of Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s Meeting

There are new insights into the early stages of Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s romance emerging.

During the December/January cover story of WSJ Magazine, the NFL player said in an open interview that he first saw the singer during her Eras Tour in July, which is how their affair began.

In an earlier edition of his podcast, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, Kelce disclosed that he had intended to present Swift with his fingers through a friendship bracelet at her Arrowhead Stadium performance, but he was unable to carry out his plan.

Fortunately, Kelce found Swift through a “invisible string”; as he told WSJ Magazine, he “had somebody playing Cupid” on his side.

Who, then, acted as Swift and Kelce’s matchmaker? This is all the information we have on the couple’s relationship.

When did Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce meet?

The relationship between Swift and Kelce began in July 2023 when the NFL player was sighted during her Eras Tour stop at Arrowhead Stadium, where he plays for the Kansas City Chiefs. The football player was observed exchanging friendship bracelets with fans inside the arena while taking in the performance from his VIP box.

Despite Kelce’s intention to offer Swift a friendship bracelet including his phone number, the two did not really get along after the performance. “I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs she sings, so I was a little butthurt that I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her,” Kelce said in his podcast.

Even though it didn’t work out, Kelce revealed in November 2023 that he received some assistance from Swift’s close friends in order to attract her attention after his initial attempt to get her to give him his number failed. “There were undoubtedly those in her corner who were aware of who I was and exclaimed, ‘Yo! Did you anticipate his arrival? I had someone playing Cupid,” Kelce said to WSJ Magazine. He went on to say that Swift contacted him personally, which is how he eventually learned of this.

According to Kelce, he even received assistance from certain Swift family members in attracting her attention. “I know she’s going to hate me for saying this, but when she came to Arrowhead, her little cousins were taking pictures in front of my locker, and they gave her the big locker room as a dressing room,” he added.

Who introduced Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce?

So who precisely served as “Cupid” in the romance between Swift and Kelce? Given that the football player and singer have a few mutual connections, there are a number of persons who could have connected them.

To begin with, Miles Teller, the actor, is good friends with both Swift and Kelce. Before the American Century Championship in2022, Kelce practiced golf with Teller and Patrick Mahomes, the quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. Teller, meantime, previously starred with his wife Keleigh Sperry in Swift’s “I Bet You Think About Me” music video. Alongside NFL player Aaron Rodgers, the couple also went to Swift’s Eras Tour in New Jersey in May 2023.

Furthermore, one of Swift’s backup dancers from the Eras Tour seems to be a hilarious Kansas City Chiefs fan. The brother of football star Khalen Saunders, who played alongside Kelce for the Kansas City Chiefs from 2019 to 2022, is Kameron Saunders, who has become well-known online for his entertaining “Bejeweled” dance during the event.

NFL commentator Erin Andrews could have been another individual who helped Swift and Kelce find one other. In fact, in an August podcast episode, Andrews had already pleaded with Swift to “please try our friend Travis.” At the time, Andrews remarked, “He is amazing,” and continued, “Taylor, I know we’re not the best of friends—in fact, we’re not even friends—but I still think of you as one.” Accept our offer. Take this guy out on a date. For the sake of America, do it.

Andrews discussed the podcast incident on Late Night with Seth Meyers after Swift and Kelce actually started dating, lightheartedly suggesting that she was a major factor in their romance. When it came to not getting to meet her, Travis was quite honest. We were being rather open with one other since we adore him. He is good friends with us, and we were like, “Taylor, go out with this guy.” “I mean, he’s attractive,” Andrews remarked to the host. “He’s just a really wonderful man. We then put it out there, and they ended up getting together. Naturally, we’re now receiving all the credit,” she continued.

In an October tweet, Kelce went so far as to praise them for whatever part they may have played in setting up the match. He posted the following on Instagram in response to the video: “😂😂 You two are something else!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 I really owe you!

Furthermore, a few fans conjectured about a potential connection via Jason Sudeikis, a die-hard Kansas City Chiefs fan, who was seen playing Uno with the singer during one of Questlove’s game evenings in August, just before the Swift/Kelce romance claims gained traction. “I was thankful to Taylor, just hanging out, coming to do two nights of shows [in Kansas City],” Sudeikis told The Hollywood Reporter, declining to confirm or refute the claims despite his positive relationship with the duo and their recent donation of auction goods to his Thundergong! charity event. I had no idea she would become our adopted daughter a mere few months later. She wants to hang out with Travis, and I don’t blame her for wanting to spend more time here. He is a decent man.

Fans have found video of Rare Beauty creator Selena Gomez attending the same Big Slick 2019 Softball Game as Kelce, though it’s unlikely that Selena played a role in their affair. Gomez and Kelce greet the camera in the video while standing only a few feet apart. “Is Travis Kelce there? One commenter exclaimed, “The invisible strings are actually invisible stringing!”

When did Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce go on their first date?

Swift did eventually get in touch with Kelce, and things got off from there, all because to their “Cupid.” “She explained everything to me and how I was fortunate enough to get in touch with her,” Kelce remembered their initial conversation to WSJ Magazine.

The two corresponded for a while before meeting up in person in New York. Regarding their first date, Kelce remarked, “I knew we could have a nice dinner and, like, a conversation, and what goes from there will go from there.”

Later, in September 2023, when Swift openly supported Kelce during his Kansas City Chiefs football game at Arrowhead Stadium, romance rumors around the two began to circulate. Swift and Kelce made their romance public the following month when they were spotted holding hands in New York City after their Saturday Night Live appearance. This came after Swift had gone to a few more games with her famous friends.
