Although the 2021 NFL season matches are several months away, they have already made some big announcements of upcoming football activity. One of the loudest voices was that the Atlanta Falcons would be played in London as part of the International Games.
The NFL added a new rule.
After all 32 team holders gathered, they agreed that everyone must play outside the United States as of the 2021 season. The rule is that every franchise must have at least one international game every eight years.
They haven’t announced how it will work or which teams will be responsible for implementing this new rule. The only thing they have officially announced is that the Falcons will be their first international match of the 2021 season and they will be in London.
