  • What's On -05-Oct-2018

Why is 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 expatriates, while 22% are from London and 60% from elsewhere in Britain. Ticket prices are from £35 for end zone seats to £100 for lower sideline seats.
