It seems like they are getting more big-known teams in the international contests this year.

I wonder if their goal is to have 16 such games. I’d play two or three in Canada, consider Australia as well. I’d also consider, if they need more neutral games, playing in non-NFL cities now and then.

Non-NFL cities in the US would be neat.

San Diego, San Antonio, St. Louis could be interesting. They should do a game in Toronto and Vancouver as well.

There was the NFL Europe. I think it started in the 1990s but I didn’t follow it closely. I don’t remember when the NFL pulled the Plug either.

The NFL didn’t figure out how to adapt to the competitive Changes which needed to be made every Year in London UK & Frankfurt Germany. I don’t know where in Western Europe the other Teams were located. There may have been 1 in France & 1 in Spain & 1 in the Netherlands.
I don’t know how competitive the existing Teams were with each other.

The NFL obviously didn’t overcome the Market Competition from Soccer & achieve a critical Mass of Financial backers with sustaining paying Fan Numbers.

I know Basketball has a firm hold in Germany as well as many other West, Central & Eastern European Countries.

I believe the logistical issues will prevent a European or multiple European franchises. Perhaps I’ll revisited this in ten years if there are enough sports academies over there developing local players to feed a teams or teams

There are currently more professional lacrosse fans in the USA than there were Europeans following the NFL Europe.

@coldburn The key word is ‘were’. Things may have changed since then. Games are a lot easier to access and follow now.

The past tense was used because there aren’t any NFL Europe games being conducted in the present. That condition exists (no NFL Europe) because resident European sport enthusiasts do not follow or want access to American football.

I am bummed that after paying $399 for Sunday Ticket I did not get to see the 4 Sunday games. I mean really guys get it together.

There is American football being played in Europe.

For many years there was a Euro Bowl of teams from the various American style football leagues playing on the continent.

Sure, it’s not close to the level of popularity that Soccer enjoys… But there are some pockets of fans that enjoy the sport over there and it’s certainly a sport that could grow in popularity in the coming years…
