NFL UK International Series

NFL in the UK is growing at an incredible rate, evidence of this can be seen with the expansion of the NFL International Series having games played in the UK every year since 2007.

The NFL International Series has grown from a single London game in 2007 to 3 sold out games annually played in London from 2014. The International Series are regular season games from within the NFL season framework chosen to play games in the UK.

All International Series games played in the UK have been played at Wembley Stadium, London. There is speculation that wembley stadium could be the home of a NFL expansion team, the first team in the league framework of the NFL to be based outside the USA. This has been controversial due to Wembley being the home of Association football in England.

The growing popularity of the NFL in the UK has also lead to weekly games being shown regularly on Sky Sports
