American Fußball - the NFL exploring staging games in Germany

The NFL is exploring the idea of playing regular season matches in Germany. 

They're seeking a "suitable" German city for the potential expansion of its International Series into mainland Europe.

London has been the home to 28 matches since 2007, with two more coming to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in October 2021.

Germany is no stranger to American football. It's home to six of the eight franchises in the soon-to-be launched European League Of Football. The likes of Rhein Fire and Berlin Thunder also participated in the defunct NFL Europe.

"The International Series has become a highlight of the sporting calendar in the UK, with many fans travelling from Germany to attend," said Brett Gosper, NFL Head of UK and Europe.

"We are very excited about the development of our German fan base, and the time is right to identify a partner who can execute a game at NFL standards as part of our international growth strategy.

"This process is designed to explore potential local partnerships, stadium suitability and game logistics. We need engaged and motivated host partners that span the public sector, venue, sport, community and major event spheres and can help us deliver a high-impact event and a long-term partnership.

"Identifying a preferred host city is a key step in bringing regular-season NFL games to our millions of German fans."

The NFL has engaged London-based The Sports Consultancy to assist in the process, including working with interested cities to develop their proposals.

NFL owners recently passed a motion that will see all 32 franchises playing outside of the US  at least once every eight years.

Up to four neutral site games outside the United States will be scheduled each season.
