While a decision on establishing a franchise in the UK is a matter for the National Football League, the Government is very supportive of their ambition to do so. The 2018 London games were another great success, with average attendances of 85,000 demonstrating the strong appetite for American football in the UK. We are delighted at the NFL’s announcement of four London games in 2019, at Wembley and Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium.
