Why establish a foothold in the UK when there was already one in germany to spread it through the mainsole of europe? From an economic view it makes no sense, Germany is the biggest market in europe. I mean last IS game in London was not even sold out!!!They had to cover the corners of the third level(i was very surprised). For such a big city very seldom!

Regarding the facts, it might be a personal issue here for Goddell. Even Paul Tagliabue (NFL president bevor Goddell) advised Goddell to keep activity up for germany. But he erased everything here. If you hate something why going further with it? I would do the same if you ask me.

Still I just say it might be possible this way. Maybe I am wrong (i hope)but it is not fair to claim it as bullsh*t.

Hardy,

Yes I do agree Germany is the largest market in Europe and I wish the NFL would have a game in your country. I'm just saying the league decided for now to focus on the UK. It would be really stupid for them not take the rest of Europe latter once solid "beachhead" has been established. The reasons why is stated from other members up above. (Language, Culture....etc)

Take care,

NFLtheBest

Which stadiums in Germany are big enough for an NFL game to take place? Dimensions wise on the field I mean.

Most suited would be Berlin with a capacity of around 74.000. Berlin was host of the American Bowls years ago (preseason games) with great succes. The stadium is very polished. Other possible sites: Munich (state of the art, 69.000). Frankfurt is a american football stronghold, the Galaxy of the NFL Europe had huge succes there, filling the stadium each game near sellout.
Gelsenkirchen (Schalke, Veltins-Arena) has a very good stadium (Rhein Fire played there with succes).

All of these stadiums are able to host american football games.

DOrtmund's stadium is the biggest there, 82,500 or something with 25,000 capacity standing area!

You?re right with Dortmund but i guess the pitch is to small to host an NFL game. I think cities like Berlin, Frankfurt and Duesseldorf would be a perfect fit. But i think we will not see a game here in the near future...

Football is gaining popularity in Japan, due in part to a manga (comic book) called Eyeshield 21:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JihQoyKRnyk

Manga is a very popular medium in Japan, read by all ages and accounting for 25% of their publishing. If I were the NFL I'd take advantage of this and commission more manga showcasing the glories of American football (with the feel-good ending being the Japanese protagonist joining an NFL team and winning the Super Bowl).
love eyeshield 21 and its worth noting that the NFL did endorse it when it was translated into english, the manga itself did do alot to boost the popularity of the sport in japan as well as its anime adaptation.

Theres alot of manga and it covers all sorts of subjects so it wasnt too much of a shock to see an AM football one crop up eventually, it benefitted from being a tournament type manga and getting into shonen jump wich has the likes of one piece and naruto so it had great exposure too.

and japan LOVES is baseball, theres some really good manga and anime about baseball.
