With popularity of American football gaining more and more popularity across the globe, Mayor Boris Johnson of London is currently in talks with the NFL to hold more games in the Olympic Stadium which is tenaciously looking for events to fill the venue. Without a permanent resident in the stadium, NFL games would be a welcome addition to a city that's in love with sports.
The Olympic Stadium is in need of a tenant, and London Mayor Boris Johnson thinks the NFL could be the right match.
Just a few days after the NFL’s sixth regular-season game at Wembley Stadium, Johnson said he has spoken with the league about playing more games in the British capital.
‘‘Sunday’s game at Wembley, in front of over 80,000 fans, further cements London’s reputation as the natural home of American football outside of the United States,’’ the mayor’s office said in a statement.
