NFL plans to expand presence in London
The NFL is looking to expand its global reach even further by planning to add a third London game to the schedule each season, reports NFL.com.
Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke at a New York University conference Tuesday, where he revealed those plans.
The league wants to eventually put a franchise in London. But before that happens, the NFL must find places to play the game. Wembley Stadium is a possibility and a $780 million stadium constructed for the 2012 Olympics sits empty without a permanent sports tenant.
This season, the NFL will play two games in London.
As for the possibility of the Jaguars becoming the franchise to move to England, one representative of the team was not quite sure.
A Jaguars spokesman said Tuesday that “our focus is on one game per year we are committed to play there the next four years. That’s all we’re thinking about.”
