Swift has attended four Chiefs games this season to support the 34-year-old, sparking a media frenzy with every appearance.

But the Blank Space singer may have divided loyalties ahead of Kansas City’s blockbuster game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Is Taylor Swift an Eagles fan?

The 12-time Grammy Award winner may be seen sporting Chiefs merchandise these days but her original love lay with the Eagles.

Swift grew up in the state of Pennsylvania, where Philadelphia is the largest city, and was a fan of ‘The Iggles’.

As recently as June, the 33-year-old was spotted sporting a Philadelphia Eagles jumper in New York City.

But her allegiance goes far beyond a one-time fashion choice, with Swift confirming the lyrics to ‘Gold Rush’ reference the NFL team.

‘”I have a lyric that says “With my Eagles t-shirt hanging from the door”, Swift told fans at a May concert at Lincoln Financial Field, the home venue of the Philadelphia’s professional football franchise.

Swift added: “I saw some people wondering if it was the band the Eagles or the team the Eagles and I love the band the Eagles.

“But guys, come on. I’m from Philly. Of course, it’s the team.”

Swift’s romance with Kelce would understandably lead to her changing her NFL allegiance, but it has even affected her father.

Scott Swift was joined by Kelce for his daughter’s Eras Tour show in Buenos Aires earlier this month and wore a Chiefs lanyard.

Travis’ older brother, Jason Kelce, is a center for the Eagles and was among the most to be hurt by the change of heart.

“You’re gonna let this man’s devilishly good looks and relationship with your daughter sway you from a lifetime of fandom, Scott? This is ridiculous,” he said on his and Travis’ podcast, “New Heights”.

Travis responded: “Man. I might have persuaded him at a dinner the night before when I met him.”

He added: “He’s a huge football guy – he played college ball. I believe a year at Hawaii and then a year or two – I forget how long he was there – at Delaware.

“I think he was a linebacker-turned-center… he’s a tall guy – about 6ft 2in.”
