Travis and Jason Kelce are reaching New Heights across the pond – and they’re convinced it’s all down to Taylor Swift.
During the latest episode of their New Heights podcast, the Kelce brothers revealed that they currently have the No 1 and No 2 best-selling NFL jerseys in the UK, with their respective Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles numbers most popular with British fans.
The pair rank even rank ahead of their team’s superstar quarterbacks in Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes and Philadelphia’s Jalen Hurts, who come in at third and fourth on the list.
After learning of their newfound fame, Travis suggested they head to London and film a live show in the British capital.
‘We gotta get over there dude,’ the Chiefs tight end said. ‘I feel like if this is what’s going on in the UK, we gotta get a live show over there dude.’

Travis admitted the ‘only reasonable’ explanation was his girlfriend Swift’s British fanbase
Jason replied: ‘You ain’t gotta talk me into that, I’d be very down for that.’
Travis and Jason have been NFL stalwarts for quite some time, meaning their sudden surge in popularity in the UK is a surprise to both men.
But it didn’t take them long to work out why.
Jason asked: ‘A lot of Swifties over there in the UK?’
‘There’s gotta be,’ Travis replied. ‘It’s the only reasonable solution to all of this.’
Travis’ level of fame has skyrocketed of late amid his whirlwind romance with Swift, who has attended several of his Chiefs games in recent months.
The pop sensation was at Arrowhead on Sunday for their controversial defeat by the Buffalo Bills, which saw Kansas City denied a potential game-winning touchdown due to an offensive offside call.
Jason, meanwhile, has three children with his wife of five-and-a-half years Kylie.
The pair also hinted that they could bring their New Heights show over to London in the future

The Eagles center joked: ‘I’m only No 2 [best-selling jersey] because a lot of people in the UK maybe just don’t watch football and they’re like, “oh I heard this Kelce guy dates Taylor Swift”… and they just buy my jersey by accident.’
Travis then said: ‘No no no. They’re all Kylie Kelce fans, so they’re supporting Kylie of course.
‘Shout out to Kylie, shout out to Taylor. Thank you guys.’
