NFL Sold Out in London

Posted: Feb. 19th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

The NFL apparently has a lot of fans in London. The two games that are scheduled to be played in London during the 2013-14 season have already sold out. It does not seem to matter what teams are playing as past NFL events with different teams have also sold out almost immediately.

The NFL has sold out both of the games scheduled to take place in London in 2013. Speaking at his annual pre-Super Bowl press conference, the league's commissioner, Roger Goodell, hailed the news as evidence of the league's growing support in the UK, and left the door open to the possibility of one day placing a franchise in London.

"I think the message is very clear. We've got passionate fans that love the NFL in the UK," said Goodell. This is the first year in which the NFL has attempted to host multiple games in London, and the success in selling out both so long before they are due to take place is viewed in league offices as a powerful indication of the market's strength.
