The National Football League is growing rapidly and with new TV deals signed, the game will be growing even more in the next decade. Now, as the league looks to grow its brand globally, the NFL could be targeting regular-season games in Canada and Germany very soon.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NFL was forced to suspend its international series. It marked the first since 2006 that a regular-season game wasn’t played outside of the United States. With the series returning in 2021, commissioner Roger Goodell and team owners are thinking even bigger beyond the upcoming season.
Rumors of the NFL International Series expanding emerged in March, with talk about a variety of potential locations. While Goodell plans to keep having games played in the UK and in Mexico, there’s a growing desire for the league to broaden its reach across the globe.
