"I've loved watching women and girls fall in love with football," she told People. "I've grown up loving the sport my entire life, and Taylor has had such a huge impact with her presence at Chiefs games. It's so fun to have her now as a part of Chiefs Kingdom. ... Previously, about 49% of the NFL fan base was women, and that number is growing rapidly. So we're super excited for all the new Swifties to be a part of this game."
