NFL Fan Rally In London's Trafalgar Square Attracts 40,000 People
Published October 27, 2013
WINNING THE HEARTS AND MINDS: In London, Nick Szczepanik wrote that some see the "logical outcome" of the Jaguars' four games in London is that the team will move to the city. Full houses will persuade Jags Owner Shahid Khan "to increase the number of Jaguars visits after 2016" and eventually establish the first NFL franchise in the U.K. The other side of that coin, however, is "the unglamorous Jaguars could struggle to capture the imagination or loyalty of British NFL fans unless they are hosting big-name opponents such as the 49ers, or the Dallas Cowboys, their visitors in next year's game." If attendance falls off, it "might force a rethink about the future of games in London, let alone a team permanently based here." The NFL is "prepared to play the long game." Goodell said, "We want to create success here. It depends on fan support continuing to grow. [If] at some point in time it will become obvious a team here could be successful then we have to figure out other issues. Like which team, or teams" (INDEPENDENT, 10/27).
