NFL Targeting More European Games, Potential Franchise

Sep 8, 2023

The NFL opened its 2023 season in Kansas City on Thursday night, but Roger Goodell made it clear he is still focused on bringing pro football overseas.

“We really see football as a global sport,” the NFL commissioner told NBC ahead of the network’s broadcast of the Detroit Lions’ shock 21-20 upset of the Chiefs.

The defending Super Bowl champions will play in the NFL’s second-ever game in Germany this fall — which sold out within minutes of tickets becoming available. It’s one of five international matchups, including a second one in Germany and three in the U.K — but the NFL doesn’t want to stop there.
