What is NFL in London?

NFL is America's National Football League... except, as we all know, football in America isn't the football we're familiar with. Find out more about what American Football actually involves and get up to date on the rules here.

NFL London Games (previously known as NFL International Series, and then NFL in London) is what it says; the American game, transferred to London. Of the 32 teams in the league, three will play a match here in London in autumn 2024 (with a fourth team playing in Munich). The games played here and in Germany are part of the regular season, and count towards the league as such.

History of NFL in London

NFL in London is part of a tour previously known as the NFL International Series, which saw matches played in countries all over the world. In addition to the London matches, Germany hosts a match this year. Mexico City usually does too, but is sitting out the 2024 season due to work being done on the stadium there.

Wembley has been hosting NFL games since 2007, and Twickenham has also hosted NFL games in the past, but Tottenham Hotspur's stadium has been the main London host of NFL games since 2019.

There was talk of the NFL becoming the main tenant of the Olympic Stadium, before West Ham moved in. There have also been discussions about having an NFL team stationed in London permanently, but the logistics and complications of that mean there are no firm plans yet.
