Jersey Girl Sports fam if you thought the NFL was pulling back from games in London, think again! The NFL has announced that three games will be played in London during the 2018-19 season.
- The Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders will play October 14th
- the Philadelphia Eagles will play the Jacksonville Jaguars October 21st or 28th
- The Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Chargers will be the last teams to play
I guess the NFL was happy with viewership and attendance this season and decided to increase games. We also know the NFL is trying to grow its audience in Europe.
I’m not sure what the long-term plan is for the NFL and its brand in Europe, but it will be nearly impossible for them to replace the popularity of football, i.e. soccer.
What do you think?
