Should London host the Super Bowl? – (NOLA.COM) Saints News
After winning the against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz said the games played in England’s capital are comparable to the Super Bowl. While Roger Goodell said the sport’s biggest game is not in London’s immediate future, some think having London as a host city would globalize the game and help the league grow outside of the United States. Others think having the Super Bowl overseas is an abomination. What do you think?


The NFL might not be thinking of a Super Bowl in London now, but the league would foolish to squash the idea. The games in England’s capital have been wildly successful and that kind of momentum needs to be maintained. 

Other sports have globalized, while the NFL is still lagging behind. Hosting one of the most watched events in the world in London would build the league’s international status and grow the game overseas. This is a no-brainer decision. There should be a Super Bowl in London.

Football is an iconic American sport. Hosting the sport’s biggest game on foreign soil would be a travesty. 

Regular season games in London have been successful enough; the NFL shouldn’t need to make a big splash by hosting the Super Bowl there. Sending teams to England has been exciting, but fans in the United States shouldn’t be forgotten. The Super Bowl needs to stay on American soil.
