As a response to the growing interest in American football around the world, the league has been playing games overseas for much longer. This week it will move to Mexico and the next season, it will be hosted by London. Yes! Fans NFL are coming to London. Former Chicago Bears man mountain William "The Refrigerator" Perry posed with cheerleaders and did interviews in support of efforts to bring the NFL back to the British capital. Perry has even asserted that he will christen the new Wembley Stadium in London by awarding a NFL game to the English capital.

This famous venue is expecting to host two gazebo NFL teams when its doors will reopen 20 years after the old stadium first hosted an "American" football game. If this plateau materializes it will become one of the greatest in the world, and one can not deny that NFL players would certainly love to be part of a major international event in a venue like Wembley Stadium. The buzz is that people are so happy see NFL teams come to their city and are drooling in the air of pride.

The NFL will play its first regular season game outside the United States in Mexico City on coming Sunday. The Arizona Cardinals will face the San Francisco 49ers. With this milestone, NFL will truly become global and will emerge as a great opportunity to showcase Wembley and London to a worldwide audience and will add to the continuing phenomenal growth the league has enjoyed over the past 50 years.
