The NFL is expanding it’s international reach in the near future.
Early Tuesday morning, the league confirmed that three cities in Germany are in the discussion to host a future regular-season game. Those cities are Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, and Munich.
“Regular-season games are a key part of continuing the development of our German fan base by creating more excitement for the sport and more connectivity with fans and communities,” said Brett Gosper, NFL Head of Europe and UK.
“The strong interest we have received from German cities underlines what a fantastic opportunity this is for a host, ranging from the significant economic benefits and global exposure to the chance to become a hub for the growth of the NFL’s fan engagement, community and grassroots activities.”
