Taylor Swift is set to touch down in Australia later this month for the Aussie leg of her Eras Tour, which will kick off in Melbourne on February 16.
And speculation on whether or not the the singer will be joined Down Under by her NFL star boyfriend Travis Kelce is ramping up.
The Kansas City Chiefs tight end is just moments away from playing in the Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday.
Some believe a potential trip to Australia depends on if his team takes home the trophy.
A Super Bowl win could mean Kelce will be swept up in days of celebratory parties with his football buddies, Australian NFL expert Jaymz Clements told Herald Sun earlier this month.

‘Typically you’ll see two to three days of hardcore partying,’ he told the publication.
‘With this Super Bowl already in Vegas, the party is right there on their doorstep, so it’d be no surprise if the Chiefs party extremely hearty for at least two days.’
That means if the Chiefs lose, Kelce is most likely to jet to Australia to lick his wounds alongside his love Swift.
Of course, Kelce’s bond with Swift may be so strong he’ll ditch the winning celebrations either way, especially since his training schedule has been so strict he couldn’t even accompany Swift, 34, to the Grammys this month.
‘I wish I could go and support Taylor at the Grammys and watch her win every single award that she is nominated for,’ he told The Pat McAfee Show at the time.

‘But I think I’ve got practice on Sunday, or it is a travel day? No, I’ve got practice on Saturday, Sunday is a travel day. I’ve got to get ready for this big old Super Bowl.’
Meanwhile, dedicated Swifties believe Kelce will definitely be joining Taylor.
‘I have a feeling Travis will be in Australia by Valentine’s Day and him and Taylor are gonna do something so special,’ gushed one on X, formerly Twitter.
‘Everyone is asking about Taylor making it to the Super Bowl. The real question is, will Travis be going to Australia with her after the Super Bowl??’ asked another.

Swift has an epic travel schedule lined up for this month
‘Travis Kelce better be on the flight to Australia with Taylor after the Super Bowl if she is traveling from her tour in Japan to the Super Bowl before going all the way down to Australia,’ added one.
Swift will arrive in Australia next week to perform seven sold out shows, with the expected revenue reaching hundreds of millions of dollars.
The pop star’s Aussie tour is set to benefit many Australians in unexpected ways, with countless Swifties forking out big bucks on costumes and accessories for her show.
‘The spend on fashion and craft supplies in the lead-up to the concert are additional to the usual visitor expenditure bundle,’ a representative for economist Deloitte told Nine.
They added a jaw-dropping $220million was expected to be spent by Australian Swifties excited about seeing their idol perform live.
In addition to the millions of dollars spent on tickets, interstate fans will spend big travelling to shows, booking hotels, buying food and drinks, and merchandise.
An estimated $126million has already been spent by fans on concert tickets and, when combined with the additional $220million, Aussies are spending a whopping $346million on Swift’s 2024 Eras Tour in Australia.
Meanwhile, Travis recently revealed that he and Taylor had been dating for a month prior to her first appearance at a Chiefs game against the Chicago Bears in September, as he described his relationship with the pop star as a ‘beautiful thing’ on ESPN’s Pat McAfee Show.
‘We had known each other for close to a month up to that point,’ Kelce said.
‘It wasn’t just out of the blue, “Hey, come to the game,”‘ he added.
‘It’s a beautiful thing, isn’t it,’ Kelce recently said of his romance with the pop superstar
While reflecting over the hate and criticism from fans at the start of his relationship with Taylor, Kelce – a two-time Super Bowl champ – preferred to keep a simple view on love.
‘It’s a beautiful thing, isn’t it,’ he said of his romance with the singer. ‘And hopefully everybody realises we’re two people in a relationship supporting each other and having fun with it. It’s nothing more than that.
‘How much the world wants to paint the picture and make us the enemy, we just have fun with it. And we just have fun with it. We just enjoy every single bit of it.
‘Sure enough, I love it when Taylor comes and supports me and enjoys the game with the fam and friends. It’s been a wonderful year, man.’
