It’s the highlight of the NFL season and perhaps the most exciting sports game of the year. Millions of people are watching this match, thousands of them in the respective stadiums.
It’s hard to imagine that this major event won’t take place at an NFL team’s stadium. However, for NFL President Roger Goodell, this scenario is not so impossible. Quite the opposite.
NFL: Superbowl coming soon to London?
The fact that NFL regular season games are played in London has become normal. But discussions are now gaining momentum about hosting the Super Bowl as a realistic future option.
“It’s not impossible, and it’s something that’s been discussed before,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said at a fan forum in London, where the Tennessee Titans will play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday (Oct. 15).

This is the third weekend in a row that an NFL regular season game will be played in the British capital. Those around the league say a Super Bowl in London will one day become a reality. It is not currently possible to predict when this will happen.
More games planned in Europe
In recent years, the NFL’s presence in Europe has increased significantly. More and more fans from Great Britain, Germany and their partners are interested in American sports. There are five matches in Europe this year, three in London and two in Frankfurt.
There could be more to come. NFL bosses have often stressed that they want to serve ever-growing interest and bring more games to Europe in the next few years – including to countries other than Great Britain and Germany.
