NFL Europe Lives On

Recommended Posts

The National Football League has approved - by an "overwhelming majority" - the business plan of the NFL Europe League for the next five years. The NFLEL is now set to operate through the 2010 season.

NFLEL Managing Director Jim Connelly described the approval as "... a fantastic show of support for our business plan and the achievements of the NFL Europe League".

The 2006 NFLEL season will be contested by the Amsterdam Admirals, Berlin Thunder, Cologne Centurions, Frankfurt Galaxy, Hamburg Sea Devils and Rhein Fire. The season is scheduled to kick-off the week of March 17th and 18th.

Wait, they haven't renamed it "NFL Germany" yet? I mean, it seems to only be German Cities and Amsterdam.

I think it's great that the NFL is committed to spreading the league across the ocean, and make an attempt at running it like a minor league in the process. And the fans really seem to be into it overseas.

I can't think of any player offhand that has NOT benefitted from playing time in NFL-Europe. Even if a player does not immediately get a starting position for one team, a good résumé from the NFL-E makes the player more marketable for other teams.
