NFL to play more games in London
The NFL has just announced a partnership between them and the Rugby Football Union (RFU) that will be used to allow the league to play at least three regular-season games in London, at the Twickenham Stadium. This deal would cover a three-year period, and give even more access for games on an international scale. So far, the NFL has been using the Wembley Stadium to host their London games, and now by adding another stadium into the mix, this could help their efforts in expanding the sport worldwide. This year there has already been three games played in London, specifically at the Wembley Stadium, which includes:
  • New York Jets (27) vs. Miami Dolphins (14)
  • Jacksonville Jaguars (34) vs. Buffalo Bills (31)
  • Kansas City Chiefs (45) vs. Detroit Lions (10)
With the Jaguars-Bills game being completely broadcasted online, through the exclusive services, which was a huge success. It would seem that the Jaguars caused quite an impression while in London, as they are scheduled to play a game there again for the 2016 and 2017 seasons. This deal seems to be a great booster not only for the league but also for the RFU,
“The NFL has a strong and growing fan base in the UK, and this, combined with the investments we’ve made in our stadium will give fans more opportunities to experience the action first-hand at a world-class venue. We look forward to working with the NFL on this partnership.”
Some fans are not all that happy to see that their teams are being shipped off to play their games overseas instead of at home, but hopefully this will be appeased in the future. This whole situation is to try and help bring in more international football teams into the mix. It would be great to see franchises join the NFL that are not all from the United States, and with such a strong following of Rugby around the world, it wouldn’t be such a wild idea.
