Bringing Football International
The NFL began playing international games in 2005 when they played regular season games outside of the typical United States cities. NFL London was one of the original international destinations that the NFL chose, with NFL Mexico following nearly a decade later. With the NFL’s audience being mainly American and within the United States, the league decided that international play would be a great way to expose the rest of the world to American football. The first ever international regular season game was in fact not played in London, although they were the city that officially got the first international series. In October of 2005 the San Francisco 49ers and the Arizona Cardinals faced off in Mexico City, with the Cardinals bringing home a regular season victory.
Bringing the Game to London
Despite the first international game being held in 2005, the NFL hosted their first game outside of North America in 2007 when the Miami Dolphins faced off against the New York Giants at the Wembley Stadium. Cheap tickets to this game were extremely hard to come by, as they sold out within minutes of them going on sale. Seeing that there was great demand in this market for American football, the NFL decided that they would host a single game every year in London. This remained the case up through 2011 when it was decided that one game was not nearly enough. Throughout the coming years the number of games played overseas would vary depending on the teams bidding. Previously all of the games were played at Wembley Stadium, now there are also some played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
