While Patrick Mahomes hopes to meet Taylor Swift soon, the sales of Travis Kelce's jerseys, one of the leaders of the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL, surged by 400% in the last two days after singer Taylor Swift attended the Arrowhead Stadium to watch last Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, fueling rumors about a possible relationship with the athlete.
Fanatics, the official online platform for NFL merchandise, reported that sales of Kelce's jersey number 87 saw a significant spike, and on Monday, his jersey entered the top five best-selling jerseys of the day, according to data revealed by 'TMZ'.
Previously, Kelce's jersey was not among the top ten best-sellers in August, which was led by Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, according to official Fanatics data.
In the past few hours, Kelce sold more jerseys than his teammate Patrick Mahomes, widely regarded as one of the best quarterbacks in the world, heir to the legendary Tom Brady, and the MVP of the last Super Bowl.
American media had been speculating for weeks about the alleged new relationship between Kelce and Swift, and the pop star's visit to Arrowhead caused quite a stir.
Swift attended the stadium wearing a red Chiefs jersey and watched the game, which the home team won 41-10 against the Bears, with a brilliant performance by Kelce, alongside the player's mother, Donna Kelce.
So far, Swift and Kelce have not shared any information about their possible relationship.
