Goodell: London Super Bowl Could Be In NFL’s Future

  • NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is open to playing a Super Bowl in London.
  • Right now, the league's priority is playing Super Bowls in cities that have franchises.
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

On Sunday, the NFL played its third and final game this season in London as the Baltimore Ravens knocked off the Tennessee Titans in front of 61,011 American football-hungry fans at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

One day, the city could host a Super Bowl.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was recently in London promoting the league’s international games, and he wouldn’t rule out taking America’s biggest sporting event across the pond. “It is not impossible, and it is something that has been discussed before,” Goodell said of potentially playing a Super Bowl in London.

However, Goodell admitted the NFL’s focus remains on playing Super Bowls in cities that currently have franchises. “Not that we do not have great fans here [in London]; we do,” he explained. “So as the International Series develops, maybe that is a possibility as we play more games here.”

International Feeling

Goodell has been talking more about the NFL’s international interests this season.

Already, he has said that the league wants to expand its European footprint, wanting to play more games on the continent. In November, the NFL will play two games in Germany.

In future seasons, the NFL could also play games in Spain and Brazil, along with an expected return to Mexico.

More European expansion and Goodell’s remarks about a London Super Bowl could be further validation for the idea of a four-team European division.
