    Please dont say its all people who were born in the USA because I dont buy it. Free tickets maybe ? In a city with over a dozen professional soccer teams how do they get over 80,000 to watch the Jacksonville Jaguars ?

    Something shady is going on. NFL and all its billions must be giving out cheap/free tickets.

    I know this doesn't answer your question but here are some facts. ( L35 is about 45 bucks USD L100 is about 130 USD.)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NFL_International_Series
    According to the NFL, only 3% of those attending the London games are Americans or American expatriates, while 22% are from London and 60% from elsewhere in Britain. Ticket prices are from £35 for end zone seats to £100 for lower sideline seats.

    that's the only way to get people drawn to a Jacksonville Jaguars game. They should just relocate already and move to a real city like Portland where they actually might sell seats.

    Portland is a bad idea. They have fully embraced soccer. I like San Antonio.

    It's two things:
    First there are a lot of expats living in the London metro area
    Second: if you had only soccer as a sport in your city, you would too probably go to a football game and see a real contact sport.

    The British are finally starting to admit that soccer is gay.

    In Toronto where there is a huge NFL fan base they hiked up tickets so high for the Buffalo vs. Whoever series every year that the people stayed home. No one wants to cheer for the bills or watch a game for $400/ticket. The NFL and Rogers (owners of the Jays) ended up giving thousands of tickets away to fill the stadium. If any city deserves a team it's Toronto. It's one of the biggest and fastest growing cities in North America with a fan base that loves the NFL and hates CFL.

    I know they give the military free tickets. However I thought it was for a Giants game later in October. I se people daily wearing Bon Jovi t-shirts here. Clearly they love EVERYTHING American.

    It's probably the novelty of seeing another country's highest level of competition. If the EPL held a match at Browns Stadium, I would go.

    The NFL has been talking about creating a team based in London based on how popular the games have been there. Anyone have any name suggestions for a London based team? Mine is is the London Crumpet Stuffers. :snicker:

    I thought they're too busy having tea and spotted dick to pay attention to American sports.
