Taylor Swift might want to clear some space in her busy schedule, as the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) is eagerly awaiting her presence in the crowd. Ever since the pop sensation started dating NFL star Travis Kelce, the worlds of Swift and sports have been intertwined. Now, her friend and soccer luminary, Alex Morgan, is rallying for her support.
At a recent press conference featuring USWNT and San Diego Wave FC standouts Alex Morgan and Jaedyn Shaw, a journalist queried Morgan about extending an invitation to Swift for a game. With a chuckle, Morgan responded, “There’s an open invitation, always.”
Not missing a beat, she playfully jabbed at American football, stating, “I mean American football games are fun, but real football is more fun.” Shaw echoed the sentiment with a resounding “Exactly.”
The NWSL’s Twitter account chimed in with a picture of Swift and Morgan’s quote, playfully asking, “What would happen if you just called Taylor up?”
The potential impact of Swift gracing NWSL games with her presence is a valid question, given the influence she’s had on the NFL. For instance, when Swift attended Kelce’s first game on September 24, Fanatics, the NFL’s official apparel partner, witnessed a staggering 400 percent surge in sales of Kelce jerseys.
The prospect of Swift attending a game isn’t as far-fetched as it may seem. Not only is she friends with Morgan, but she’s also a fan of the USWNT. As highlighted by Just Women’s Sports, the “Love Song” crooner invited the 2015 World Cup-winning team on stage during her 1989 World Tour, and she announced Morgan’s inclusion in the 2023 World Cup roster.
Morgan has previously expressed her admiration for Swift. In July, she lauded Swift as one of the “best humans” she’s ever encountered. “She is so supportive. She’s all about women’s empowerment. We both share our favorite number, number 13, born the same year, in 1989. We’ve just been really supportive of each other’s careers,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
