Meanwhile, Swift’s NFL player boyfriend Travis Kelce is hoping to add to the couple’s silverware this weekend.

The American football star, who plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, is hoping for back-to-back Super Bowl glory for his team when they take on the San Francisco 49ers at the weekend.

The 34-year-old, who has won NFL’s biggest match twice before, described Swift as “unbelievable” while speaking at the Super Bowl’s opening night in Las Vegas.

“She’s rewriting the history books herself,” he said. “I told her I’ll have to hold up my end of the bargain and come home with some hardware too.”

Kelce’s relationship with the singer-songwriter has brought new fans to the NFL in recent months, and the sportsman is embracing her Swifties.

“Taylor has an unbelievable fanbase that follows her and supports her throughout her life,” he said.

“It’s been fun to kind of gather the Swifties into Chiefs Kingdom and open them up to the football world and sports world. It’s been cool to experience that.”

R&B singer Usher will headline this year’s famous Super Bowl halftime show, with fans hoping he will perform hits including Yeah!, Burn, You Make Me Wanna… and 2004’s My Boo, a duet which features Alicia Keys.
