Adam Schefter Says The NFL Will Have Every Team Play International Game In Coming Years

The National Football League expanded to 17 regular-season games in 2021 and a lot of people expect that the league will eventually add another game at some point in the coming years to make it a 18-game season.

With the increase in games means the NFL will look to expand its international schedule.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter discussed the NFL schedule during the latest episode of “The Adam Schefter Podcast“, which was released last week. In addition to viewing an 18-game schedule as inevitable, Schefter also believes the NFL wants every NFL team to play one international game per season.

“I think we’re going to eventually have one international game for every team, per year,” Schefter said.


This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise as the NFL as been expanding their international games to Germany and now Brazil.

“The reaction we’re getting from the fans every time we play in a new market is incredible, so we’ll continue to play in London, we’ll continue to play in Germany and I hope continue to play in Brazil,” Goodell said in April. “We’ll be back in Mexico, but there are a lot of other markets that — obviously, we’re going to go to Spain next year, we’ve already planned that — but there are a lot of markets that want us to play there and we’re actively looking at all those, exploring that.”

The NFL has also shown interest in playing a game in Australia.
