Roger Goodell Hints At NFL Expansion That Includes A Four-Team ‘European Division’

The NFL returns to London for the second straight week this year as it continues it’s 14th season playing games across the pond. In total, the league is sending four games to Europe with three being played in London and one in Munich, Germany.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said he’s hoping to expand the league into Europe in the future, potentially having four European expansion teams in a Europe-only division.

“There is no question London could support, not just one franchise, [but] I think two franchises,” he said. “We’re trying to sort of see, could you have multiple locations in Europe where you could have an NFL franchise? Because it would be easier as a division.” 

The NFL hasn’t added an expansion franchise since 2002 when the Houston Texans joined the league and its’ only a matter of time before a team gets relocated to London or the league adds four new teams.
