Why the NFL took Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour dates into account when drawing up the 2024 schedule



Taylor Swift’s record-breaking Eras Tour has become such a global phenomenon that the NFL admitted to taking the pop star into account when drawing up the 2024 schedule.

The league released the upcoming season’s schedule on Thursday, leaving skeptics wondering whether NFL bosses intentionally ensured Swift would be available to cheer on her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, when the Chiefs are slated to play.

Director of Broadcasting, Charlotte Carey, shut down the theories during an appearance on the Up And Adams podcast, but said Swift did have an impact on the league’s schedule-making process.

At the end of the day, we still need to be able to play football in all of the weeks that we actually need to be home and play football … but Taylor’s definitely a factor this year also.’

The first leg of Swift’s blockbuster Era’s Tour took place last summer during the NFL off-season, however she will return to the US in the middle of the 2024 football campaign.

The good news for the songstress is that there’s only one Chiefs game she’s guaranteed to miss due to her touring commitments – the December 8 showdown against the Los Angeles Chargers at Arrowhead Stadium.
