In 2018 we were canceled due to the deplorable conditions of the pasture in the Azteca. Two years later, in the 2020we had a slightly more obvious reason in the COVID pandemic. In the 2021 health conditions meant that, once again, we did not have a party in our country.
Although they returned in 2022 with a beating of the 49ers to the Cardinalswe will have to stay with the desire to see them in 2023.
Although it is not yet confirmed what will officially happen, it was Tom Pelissero from NFL Network who said that, now that they cancel their visit to Mexico City, the American football league will seek, then, to bring 2 games in Germany and 3 in London.
