Patrick Mahomes was the "matchmaker" for Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift.

The 34-year-old sports star and Taylor began dating in 2023, and Patrick has now revealed his role in their high-profile romance.

During an appearance on 'The Pat McAfee Show', Patrick shared: "I like to take some of the credit because I was the one who invited Travis to his first Taylor concert.

"He was sitting in my suite, so I feel like I was the matchmaker. I had some input in there as well, I was like, dude, just go for it, just go for it and you know Travis man, he does it."

Patrick plays alongside Travis at the Kansas City Chiefs and he's thrilled for his teammate.

The sports star said: "He’s a great dude and I’m glad it’s all worked out for the best."

Patrick previously claimed that Taylor has helped to make the Chiefs a "worldwide team".

Speaking to Time magazine, he explained: "[The Chiefs] went from a nationwide team that was kind of global to a full global worldwide team. That came from Taylor’s fanbase."

Patrick believes the Chiefs have embraced the extra attention that's come their way in recent months.

The NFL star added: "We like having that visibility.

"At the end of the day, football has always been this bruising sport. We want to make it fun, where kids grow up and play football and show their personality and be who they are."

Despite her fame and success, Patrick has been wowed by Taylor's down-to-earth attitude and her work ethic.

He said: "I’ve met a lot of famous people now in my life. Taylor’s probably the most down-to-earth person that’s been on that stage for that long.

"She’s never not working. Even when she’s taking her downtime, she’s working on something. Shooting a music video or singing a song or writing a song. You can see it by how she talks."
