Demand for tickets to Sunday’s Jets-Chiefs game is soaring as the NFL embraces the Taylor Swift-Travis Kelce relationship.
The world found out Wednesday the 12-time Grammy Award winner will put her budding romance with the two-time Super Bowl champion tight-end on display for all to see this Sunday when the Jets host the Chiefs on the nationally televised broadcast of “Sunday Night Football.”
‘More than double’
In a conversation with The Post, a representative from Gametime said vendors saw a spike in Chiefs-Jets ticket sales from 7 to 10 p.m. ET Wednesday, the window immediately after the news broke that Swift would be at the game.
Average ticket prices rose 46.3%, jumping from $428.70 to $627.20 before tapering off.
According to uStadium and StubHub, the Jets “sold more than double the amount of tickets in a single day than any other day this season,” once Swift’s attendance for the Chiefs game was confirmed Wednesday.
A quick check online Thursday afternoon revealed that Chiefs-Jets tickets on StubHub are going for as little as $106 per ticket and as much as $8,729 per ticket.
Ticketmaster had a similar range: $117 to $10,543.
While Swift can no doubt afford those prices, chances are she will get the VIP treatment at MetLife Stadium, much like she did last Sunday when she took in the Bears-Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium. Swift was given access to Kelce’s suite for the game and took it in alongside his mother, Donna.
However it’s not known if Travis Kelce’s contract also includes suite access on the road.
According to the Suite Experience Group, suites for the Chiefs-Jets game are sold out, meaning someone behind the scenes most likely will have to pull strings to accommodate Swift.
Knowing the number of eyeballs which will be glued to the game Sunday, it’s a safe bet the NFL will find a spot for Swift to attend the prime-time matchup.
Suites at MetLife Stadium can hold anywhere from 12 to 30 guests, depending on the box.
The suites come fully loaded with catered food, drinks and alcohol, and usually include VIP parking passes as well.
Also part of the suite packages are private restrooms, multiple flat-screen televisions and access to the VIP stadium entrances.
This won’t be Swift’s first visit this year to MetLife Stadium. She played three sold-out shows there in May as part of her Eras Tour.
The Swift effect will last well beyond Sunday’s game.
Gametime reports Stubhub saw ticket sales for Kansas City home games triple following Swift’s visit last week.
After heading to East Rutherford, the Chiefs have a Week 5 matchup on the road against the Minnesota Vikings, followed another nationally televised home game on Oct. 12, when Kansas City hosts the Denver Broncos on “Thursday Night Football.”
