The NFL will play a record three regular season games in London in 2014, further affirming the league’s commitment to building interest overseas.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft would like to see the league to take its relationship with London to the next level — and relatively soon.
Speaking at an event promoting CBS’ “Thursday Night Football,” Kraft said putting a team in London by decade’s end ought to be a goal the NFL strives “very hard” to achieve, according to Marc Sessler of NFL Media.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has previously said that if the league were to expand, it would do so by two clubs, not just one.
Without expansion, a London club would entail relocation one of existing franchises. And that, to say the least, would be messy.
