Super Bowl Could Move to London in 2026

    • Tottenham Hotspur is planning to bid for the 2026 Super Bowl.
    • The team already hosts two NFL games per season.

Two days before Sunday’s Big Game, the locations for the next three Super Bowls are set. However, the host city for 2026 — or even the continent — remains unknown.

London-based Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur is hoping to make history as the first non-U.S. host for the Super Bowl. 

  • Tottenham Hotspur Stadium hosts two NFL regular-season games per year, after the team and league inked a 10-year, $54.5 million deal in 2015.
  • In addition to the fee for using the stadium, the team collects concession, food, and drink revenue during the NFL games. Fans may purchase alcohol at any point during NFL games, whereas they are restricted to halftime for Premier League matches.
  • The team is still looking for a 20-year, $544.7 million naming rights deal for the $1.6 billion stadium, which opened in April 2019.

A game in London could necessitate an unusual kickoff time, as the city is five hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time in the U.S.

Bundesliga Jumping In

Munich will host Germany’s first NFL game next season, the NFL announced Wednesday. Allianz Arena, home to FC Bayern Munich, will host a regular-season game, then alternate with Eintracht Frankfurt’s Deutsche Bank Park over the next three seasons.

Mexico will also host a game, and there will be an additional game in London at Wembley Stadium.
