The NFL’s experiment with playing regular-season games in London may soon be a lot more than an experiment.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell indicated today that he hopes to eventually put an actual franchise in London, according to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post.
Moving a franchise to London (or starting an expansion franchise in London) is probably a long way off. But in the interim, Goodell also said that the NFL is planning to add a third London game soon.
If the three games a year in London are warmly received by the home fans, it won’t be long before eight games a year are played in London. And maybe playoff games and the Super Bowl.
UPDATE 2:45 p.m. ET: Goodell said the Jaguars may start playing two “home” games a year in London.
