NFL In London 2019

What's On - 09-Oct-2019

The NFL returns to London in 2019 with its series of international games. This year, Wembley will play host to four NFL London Games matches in October and November.

London has hosted the NFL every year since 2007, when the New York Giants triumphed over the Miami Dolphins. The games have been popular, with tickets for the games selling out in just a few days, nine months in advance. This year, in addition to holding games at Wembley, two NFL games will be held at the fantastic new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium which was opened in April this year.

The NFL In London

The NFL brings games to London as part of its approach to bring American Football to a wider audience. This approach seems to be working.

According to the NFL, only 3% of those attending the London games are Americans or American expats, while 22% are from London and 60% from elsewhere in Britain. Tickets are now sold out, but prices originally ranged from as little as £23 for a child, up to £160 for an adult on a central sideline seat. At the time of writing there are some hospitality tickets available, starting at £369.
