October 25 marked the thirteenth NFL game in London’s Wembley stadium since 2007. The less than disappointing bout between the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars was witnessed by over 84,000 cheering Brits.
I hope that they know they are cheering for the Buffalo Bills and the Jacksonville Jaguars…
Regardless of what low echelon team plays in Wembley, the soccer loving British will always find a way to fill the seats.
They have managed to hold two sell-out games in two weeks. The Bills versus Jags, and the Kansas City Chiefs versus the Detroit Lions.
In the 2015 season there are three scheduled games in London, next year league officials have told London fans that there are to be four.
This growing popularity in pigskin slinging in London has encouraged London officials to encourage a permanent team in England.
The most popular NFL team in London are the Jacksonville Jaguars – yeah I know.
NFL representatives are optimistic that a team could be moved to the crumpet-munchers around 2022.
