For Sale notice at Wembley Stadium
Rojas just popped upon 'breaking news' that Shahid Kha, owner of our Jaguars, has made an offer for Wembley Stadium! Mind boggles.

The implication being suggested here is that this will be a pre-cursor to the Jags moving here full time

Potential threat to push through development back in Jacksonville.

If Jags move to Wembley soon, where does that leave WHL as a NFL facility ??

The NFL are contracted to play 2 games a year there for 10 years. Presume 2nd one this year has been deferred with them getting stadium and seating plans ready.

They can’t just walk away as Levy would make a fortune suing them. Finances have been disclosed but must be a rental and then unclear if Spurs get a cut of the food and drink sales. So those games will be played.

The Jaguars game has always been outside this as they wanted Wembley with the higher capacity. Comment anyway seems to be only two matches a year in London by Jaguars for now and it way go up but is also the nuclear option threat for stadium funding / subsidy discussions in US where in Jacksonville or another city.

Though for now the NFL see 4 London games a year as viable 1 Jags @ Wembley, 1 AN Other @ Wembley and 2 @ WHL. So could easily work with what is already planned as minimum for next few years.

Yep, So many theories, I assumed if We ever get a franchise they would play at WHL in apx 10 years at earliest unless a agreement was reached to commence earlier. There Is talk of that team being the Jags if it were to be a current relocating team as opposed to any expansion options. But if Khan buys Wembley then that's where Jags will be based. I guess a 10 year WHL contract with NFL will be lucrative enough to recover the costs of the 2nd retractable pitch and facilities etc even if never used again. Who knows what the future holds, but it looks a Bright future at least.
