    Jacksonville Owner Shahid Khan Wants to Move to London

    https://talksport.com/football/fa-se...QZBxxFyuJEt.99 says that Shahid Khan, who owns the Jacksonville Jaguars and the soccer club Fulham, wants to buy Wembley Stadium from the English Football Association (FA) that is headquartered there. Wembley normally does not have a club playing there, but Tottenham is there this season until moving into a new stadium for 2018-2019. Wembley hosts the English national team, FA Cup Semifinals and Final, Carabao Cup Final, and promotion finals of leagues below the Premier League (Premier League clubs have no place to be promoted to). An NFL team would restrict Wembley's ability to host the English national team when national teams play in September, October, and November. The analogy I make about what Wembley hosts would be if the Knicks and Rangers left MSG, and it only hosted events like the Big East tournament and concerts.

    Re: Jacksonville Owner Shahid Khan Wants to Move to London

    There’s a large and growing fanbase in London.

    But from what I read there are still a lot of issues to be discussed such as how the different time zones, travel, logistics, etc...would affect the away teams playing time, preparation,etc...so it may take a very long time.

    EDIT: Okay, I just read the article lol. An NFL team in London might be closer than I thought it would be.
