After two decades of enchanting music lovers worldwide, Taylor Swift has been a graceful presence in the NFL in the past year or so. Cheering on her boyfriend & Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, the ‘Karma’ singer even appeared at Super Bowl LVIII. But will she ever turn her attention to the other league that is making waves in the country, the NWSL? Kelce’s teammate and NFL icon Patrick Mahomes has made a hefty claim ‘We might get her here at some point, notably for his NWSL side Kansas City Current. However, an Atlanta United star considers this as wishful thinking!

He explained, I don’t think Taylor Swift really cares about soccer.” Strikingly, the 34-year-old has not been spotted at a soccer match to date. Nor has she made any claims about her favorite soccer star or team. Then what was Patrick Mahomes all on about? Let’s dive into the matter.

Exploring Taylor Swift’s NWSL connection

In a recent interview with ESPN, the QB revealed some startling info regarding Taylor Swift’s soccer interest. Mahomes revealed, “She loves supporting Kansas City just like we do and I’m sure Brittany can nudge her and get her here pretty easily.” It is worth noting that the Mahomes family and ‘Swelce’ are quite close. The two couples even celebrated the new year together. Hence, perhaps Mahomes has received an assurance of some sort that led to his statement in the first place. Probably so.

Also, Taylor Swift has links with NWSL side San Diego Wave as well. This is where her close friend and USWNT star Alex Morgan plies her trade. Morgan was also spotted at the recent Super Bowl, cheering on Travis Kelce and Mahomes, in a multi-million suite! Presumably at the request of the Pop sensation? Interestingly, Morgan invited Swift to an NWSL match previously. She had said, “There’s an open invitation, always. American football games are fun, but real football is more fun, I think.” Notably, the singer has yet to respond to the invitation.

With Patrick Mahomes and Alex Morgan urging her to do so, it is possible that Taylor Swift could grace the NWSL one day. However, that day won’t be anytime soon as the 34-year-old has a busy year ahead with the Eras Tour occupying her calendar until December 8th, 2024.
