Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs are coming off their second Super Bowl win in the last four years, and the celebration and media tour that follows a Super Bowl has begun.

Kelce, considered the best tight end in the NFL, has always been a loud and charismatic guy. While some players might do cool interviews or appear on late-night talk shows after a Super Bowl win, Kelce is taking it to the next level.

Travis Kelce SNL Host

It was announced on Thursday that Kelce will be the host of the famed TV show "Saturday Night Live" on Saturday, March 4.

Kelce himself called it a dream come true. Nine total football players and coaches have hosted in the past (10 if you count The Rock), so the star tight end will join some impressive company.

Kelce will be the first active player to host SNL since J.J. Watt did it on Feb. 1, 2020.

With his big and comedic personality, Kelce profiles as a great fit for an SNL host as far as athletes go. Be sure to tune in to NBC's legendary skit comedy show at 11:30 p.m. ET on March 4, as there will surely be some memorable moments caught on camera that night.
