The NFL is heading to Germany. And returning to Mexico.

The league announced today that it will play one game a year in Germany for each of the next four seasons, 2022 through 2025. The league will also play in Mexico City again in 2022.

“We’re thrilled to be there. We think it’s going to be a fantastic experience for us,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said.

The first-ever regular-season game in Germany will take place in Munich during the 2022 season, at the home stadium of the Bayern Munich soccer team. The NFL will also play a game there in 2024. Two more NFL games will be played in Frankfurt, Germany, in 2023 and 2025.

The NFL will also play a game at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City in November, returning to an annual tradition that had been stopped for the last two years because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  1. I think we should add more countries to the list and let them HAVE the NFL. Then Americans can start a football league old school again….no Rodger, old school football rules.

  2. At noon central time will be a 7:00 pm game there. This could work. Just as long as the teams have a bye week the following week.

  3. Question is : Will Green Bay ever be made to play a Home game away from Lambeau, much less any game at all!?

  4. Let’s guess; Green Bay, the only team yet to play in any foreign stadiums, will yet again have an excuse to miss any of these regular season games?

  5. Instead of having our teams play there, why not have NFL EUROPE where they have their own teams. Eventually you could then have their champion play the NFL USA champion.
