The NFL has officially chosen Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, and Munich to bid for a chance to host a regular-season game in Germany. The organization is aiming for Germany to host its first game in 2023 which would be the next season. However, there may be potential scheduling conflicts with soccer’s World Cup which starts next November in Qatar.
In a statement, the NFL said “After an initial period in which expression of interest was received from multiple cities, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich have been invited to proceed to the ‘candidate phase’ of the process,…Those cities will now participate in deeper conversations about staging games in Germany.”
The fan base in Germany is very strong, continues to grow, and the country has one of the world’s largest economies. Brett Gosper, NFL Head of Europe and UK, said “ I hope we’ll see a game in Germany in 2022,… There might be other obstacles that emerge during this process… So we’re cautious to say we’re definitely in 22, but it certainly won’t be later than 2023.”
