If you live in Madrid, you’re likely to be a huge football fan. But the Spanish city is reportedly set for a football attraction bearing a significant difference as the NFL is coming to town.
According to Football Zebras, the league is extending its European reach even further as there are plans to have a regular-season game in Spain.
London, England and Frankfurt, Germany are set to feature NFL games this season, while Germany will also have Munich play host. However, Mexico City games have been put on hold as the Estadio Azteca is being renovated for the 2026 World Cup.
The publication cites two sources close to the planning who have declared that a Madrid game is all but confirmed.
Meanwhile, there’s been nothing to suggest that the games in London, Frankfurt, or Munich have been scaled back. One of the London games is being handled by the Jacksonville Jaguars as owner Shad Khan also owns English Premier League club Fulham.
Two locations are thought to be under consideration for the Madrid game, with either Real Madrid’s home stadium, the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, or the Estadio Metropolitano, home to Atletico Madrid, to host the event.
The Bernabeu has a capacity of 83,168 and a hybrid grass field while the Metropolitano can seat 70,460 fans and has a natural grass field.
It’s understood that the NFL UK offices have been assessing the venues before a final decision is made.
