REPORT: NFL Considering Playing Games In Spain And France

The NFL is considering expanding its international series to other parts of Europe outside of England and Germany.

According to Ken Maguire of the Associated Press, Spain and France “sit atop the list of the league’s next potential destination” now that the league has seen so much success with playing games in London and Munich.

The interest was confirmed to Maguire in an interview with Brett Gosper, who lead’s the NFL efforts in the United Kingdom and Europe:

“We need to do our homework to make sure that there is the possibility of a place to land any games in those markets, gauge interest of the host stadia, gauge interest of the host city, even the government, as to their enthusiasm to help us bring a game,” Gosper said.

This year the National Football League played five international games.
