A Super Bowl in London is a possibility, if the man who runs Wembley Stadium is to be believed.
Alex Horne, the general secretary of the English Football Association, told the Times of London that he believes it would be good for Wembley, good for England and good for the NFL if more American football games were played in London. And he said that as Wembley shows itself to be a good host for American football, the Super Bowl would be the next step.
“It’s football’s home, England’s home first and foremost. If we could find another tenant that fitted in and worked I would go for it. We owe it to ourselves to see if it would work. Then we can get the Super Bowl,” Horne said.
That sounds like an extreme long shot. But the NFL already so thoroughly dominates the American sports landscape that as the league looks to continue to grow, that growth will increasingly come abroad. An overseas Super Bowl isn’t coming soon, but it may be coming eventually.
