The NFL is keen to hold regular season games in Germany in the near future, having said on Wednesday that it has begun a process to find a partner for the project.
Already, the Goodell circuit is having a fair amount of success with the presentation of meetings in London. Now, the popularity of American football in Germanic soil is clearly noticeable: about 2.2 million people watched part of the most recent Super Bowl in February, according to NBC Sports.
Also, the country was able to support various teams of the defunct NFL Europe from 1991 to 2007. Moreover, among the rivals of the former Montreal Machine of the World League of American Football, there was the Galaxy of Frankfurt.
“The procedure to be followed is to explore possible local partnerships, stadiums that can accommodate matches and logistical issues,” said in a statement the director responsible for NFL activities in the United Kingdom and Europe, Brett Gosper. We are committed and motivated to find associates capable of arousing the interest of the public and the sports community […] to help us create an event with major impacts. Identifying a host city is a key step in organizing matches in front of our millions of German fans. ”
