The NFL isn’t done playing American football in London.
In fact, not only is the NFL putting three games in London in 2014, but the London package may grow to four games in London in 2015. According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, that’s one of the subjects that will be discussed — although not formally voted on — at this week’s league meeting.
The NFL’s owners believe there’s plenty of room for growing the game overseas, and so far they’ve been pleased with the results in London. So the 2015 package of games could increase, and the league may put a game in a venue other than Wembley Stadium, which has hosted all of the NFL’s London games so far.
In the future, the NFL may consider moving a franchise to London. Another potentially lucrative option for the NFL would be using London to create a package of games that will air on Sunday morning in the United States and be sold separately to the league’s TV partners.
Whatever the owners discuss this week, there’s little doubt that they see the potential to make a lot of money by attracting fans in Europe. And where the NFL thinks it can make money, the NFL goes.
