Why Germany to host an NFL regular season game?

For those of you who are not diehard NFL fans, we’ll have to put them in context, because there’s a reason why the biggest football league in the world chose London and soon three cities in Germany to go play a game regular season.

In Germany they not only have a great fanaticism for soccer mainly, but also for American football, in fact, several German cities had many professional teams in a league called NFL Europe. Teutonic teams were the majority in that league.

Several teams from Germany participated in the NFL Europe, in total there were five teams that played the league in different cities. Berlin Thunder, Cologne Centurions, Frankfurt Galaxy, Hamburg Sea Devils and Rhein Fire.

So, knowing this, it is no surprise that the NFL has considered Germany a destination for a regular season game and the Germans can be just as fond of the Americans themselves, so the expansion of the NFL will reach two countries in Europe.
