The NFL’s first regular season game outside of North America will take place in London next season. According to an Associated Press report, the game may take place at Wembley Stadium, which is due to reopen later this year. The Miami Dolphins and the New York Giants have been named as possible participants in the game.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said:
"They are two of the teams that have expressed an interest and we'll narrow it down to which two teams will generate the most enthusiasm for the fans in London and the broader U.K."
Goodell went on to say the overseas games are getting a positive reaction from fans despite the fact that some teams will lose a home game.
"There are fans here that we think will like the idea and respond to it because it puts your city on a global stage and the city will be showed as a world class city itself," he said.
