Have you heard the news? The NFL is making its return to London this year with three more regular season games, matching the record set last year. For the third consecutive year, the Jacksonville Jaguars will be returning to Wembley Stadium and joining them are the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, and the Detroit Lions.
Ever since the inception of the NFL International Series, fans have gone back and forth over the benefits and pitfalls of the program. While it can be frustrating for some to lose a regular season home game as their team heads to London, the NFL International Series also creates incredible opportunities for fans.
To prove my point, here are three benefits of attending an NFL game overseas!
1. The Chance to Experience the NFL, All-Inclusive
Similar to the Super Bowl or the Pro Bowl, the NFL goes all out for the International Series. There are official NFL parties and tailgates, all leading up to the three games!
Last year, the NFL had a Friday Night Kickoff Cruise where fans could cruise down the Thames with NFL players and cheerleaders. Complimentary heavy hors d'oeuvres and open beer, wine and soft drinks were provided, and fans had the time of their lives!
Then, on gameday, the NFL had several different levels of tailgate parties fans could attend depending on their ticket package. Open beer, wine and soft drinks and complimentary fare was provided. It was the perfect way to kick-off the NFL International Games!
Not to mention, with NFL On Location's Official Ticket Packages, fans were even able to include accommodations and transportation with their tickets and VIP experiences, eliminating any additional planning.
This is royal NFL treatment you couldn't receive at just any regular season game.
2. The Opportunity to Meet Fellow Fans Abroad
While the NFL International Games aren't celebrating the deemed world's best teams or the season's best players, they are celebrating the NFL's worldwide growth.
Wembley Stadium sells out for the NFL International Games and while some of these fans are from the United States who make the trip to see their teams compete, majority of them are from the United Kingdom or surrounding countries.
Now imagine. If you decided to make the trip to London, you could unite with international strangers, not only over the game of American football, but over your team specifically! How cool is that?
3. The Excuse to Visit the World's Cultural and Historical Hub
It's a known fact the city of London is one of the world's most historical cities and it's become a cultural melting pot as well. Many people have this England city on their bucket list of "Destinations to Visit" and what better way to check it off than with the NFL?
While in town for the NFL International Series, you could visit historical landmarks such as Westminster Abbey, Parliament and Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, or the London Eye. You could check out Leicester Square, the center for all things broadway and glam. You could go shopping in Piccadilly Circus or peruse through the numerous museums holding works of arts.
There is never a shortage of things to do or sites to see in London!
