The Super Bowl’s security measures were intensified due to the attendance of Taylor Swift, who is dating Kansas City Chiefs’ Travis Kelce.

Former Secret Service agent Jim Morgan emphasized the logistical challenges Swift’s presence poses, as her movements will be complex and unpredictable.

Morgan said, “She, more than any other VIP, will likely move through this event space, from the suite, to the field, to the locker room. She may even want to talk to Usher. There’s really a logistical challenge for her team and for the event to move in and out through these different secure areas.”

“There’s also an element that fans will likely not exit when the game is over because they’ll want to see if she goes onto the field,” he continued.

“Those are the unknowns, and that’s the challenge for the teams to plan. What that looks like whether her boyfriend wins or loses and where she ends up after the game,” he added.

“It’s not just the Super Bowl. Locals and state are involved in other venues that are hosting parties for the Super Bowl and events surrounding the teams. The SEAR 1 event isn’t just the Super Bowl itself, but some of the events surrounding the Super Bowl,” explained the former federal agent.

Morgan said, “One of the things that happens at an event like this that doesn’t happen at any regular game is credentialing.”

“Logistics and credentialing tend to be the most challenging aspects of a large event, and credentialing is mandatory at a SEAR 1 event. Everyone from vendors to VIP, they all have to have certain credentials, which restricts access to certain areas. And that’s where the challenge comes for the VIPs and the talent when you’re having to move them around in and out of these different secure areas,” he continued.

“They need to know how to get in from the outer perimeter, what credentials we need, where we drop off, where we stage our vehicle, what the path is to a suite, what elevators we use, how many people we can actually take inside. There’s a lot of things that go into the coordination for VIPs,” he concluded.

While Swift’s presence is a factor, the overall magnitude of the event also contributes to the increased security.
