The Buffalo Bills are set to take on the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday in an AFC Divisional playoff showdown. In anticipation of a possible appearance by famous Bills fan Taylor Swift, the team has unveiled several new concession items at Highmark Stadium inspired by Swift’s music.
Bills Unveil Menu Items Referencing Swift’s Songs Ahead of Highly Anticipated Game
With Swift’s attendance still up in the air, the team has rolled out menu items like “Bad Blood Waffle Fries” and “22 Chicken Tenders” in hopes of appealing to the singer and her legions of fans:
“We know how much Bills Mafia loves Taylor Swift,” said Dan Misko, Delaware North’s senior executive chef. “These fun menu items are our way of being part of the excitement around her potentially attending the game on Sunday.”
Other items include “Love Story Poutine” and “Cardigan Creamsicle Cookies.” The specialty treats will only be available on January 21 when the 13-3 Bills take on the 14-3 Chiefs at 6:30 pm Eastern.
While Swift has not confirmed whether she will be in attendance, speculation has run rampant among Bills Mafia members on social media. The team has added several of her songs to their pregame playlist to energize the crowd leading up to kickoff.
Swift’s Possible Presence Adds Intrigue to Already Highly Touted Matchup
Sunday’s game is a rematch of last year’s instant classic AFC Divisional playoff, which Kansas City won in overtime 42-36 after a riveting back-and-forth affair. Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, the brother of Eagles center Jason Kelce, scored the game-winning touchdown to end Buffalo’s season.

With both teams again among the AFC’s elite this season, expectations are high for another thrilling contest. Adding to the intrigue is the Taylor Swift factor – if she attends, it would send the already raucous Bills Mafia crowd into an absolute frenzy.
“Her showing up would be the icing on the cake,” said longtime Bills fan Teresa Hill. “Bills Mafia is already juiced up for this one given how last year ended. Having Taylor there would make it unlike anything we’ve experienced before.”
Buffalo Establishments Join in Embracing Swift Ahead of Sunday’s Game
Local businesses have also joined in on the Taylor Swift excitement. Donuts Delite Bakery in Rochester created a special Bills/Chiefs/Swift-themed doughnut platter for patrons buying game day snacks. East Aurora’s Roycroft Inn offered a special room rate for out-of-town Swifties making the trip to potentially see the singer. And sports radio station 97 Rock created a “Should Taylor Swift Attend The Game?” poll that has drawn heavy interest.
“You can feel the buzz and anticipation all around town,” said Paul Lang, manager of Oliver’s Restaurant and Pour House. “We’ve added some Taylor Swift songs to our playlist, and a lot of our staff are wearing Bills gear and face glitter or temporary tattoos as a little nod to her. It’s going to be an electric atmosphere regardless, but if Taylor shows up, things will really be taken to the next level.”
Swift’s Appearance Would Cap Incredible Recent Run for Resurgent Franchise
After enduring a 17-year playoff drought, the Bills have quickly become one of the AFC’s premier franchises. They have won three straight division titles under head coach Sean McDermott and quarterback Josh Allen has inserted himself into the elite tier of NFL quarterbacks after back-to-back stellar campaigns.
By embracing Swift ahead of Sunday’s showdown, the Bills have reinforced their strong connection to their devoted fanbase. Having the global pop icon on hand would be the culmination of an exhilarating ride that Bills Mafia has fully embraced.
“It’s really cool to see all the fandemonium surrounding the possibility of Taylor attending the game,” said Sabres winger Jeff Skinner, a noted Bills fan. “Buffalo isn’t always recognized nationally as a big market, so her showing up with the whole country watching would definitely send a message about how amazing our fanbase is. Bills Mafia would completely lose their minds. I’m already getting chills just thinking about how loud it would be!”
Could a Pre-Game Swift Performance Be in Store?
While simply having Swift watch the game from a suite would thrill fans, some have speculated that the team may have an on-field performance planned leading up to kickoff. Swift has not toured stadiums in several years, which would make a surprise concert an even more monumental event.
The Bills organization has been tight-lipped about any planned tributes or ceremonies centered around Taylor Swift. But with the city already brimming with anticipation, the team would likely pull out all the stops if she lets them know she plans to attend.
Stay tuned leading up to Sunday’s kickoff – if Swift announces her attendance, expect a game day experience like no other for the electric Highmark Stadium crowd! Both Bills Mafia and Chiefs Kingdom hope she can help provide an aura fitting for this highly anticipated AFC playoff clash between two of pro football’s top contenders.
