“NFL love begins with our clubs,” Christopher Halpin, NFL executive vice president of strategy and growth, said in a league statement. “This important initiative allows NFL teams to develop meaningful direct relationships with NFL fans in other countries, driving global growth. We are very pleased with the number, creativity and level of commitment of the proposals from clubs in general to throughout this initial application period, and we look forward to teams launching their efforts early next year. “

As part of the program, clubs will have access to international markets for a period of at least five years during which teams will have rights to seek activities in that specific market that are consistent with what they do in their domestic markets. That includes digital and face-to-face marketing, corporate sponsorship sales, fan events and activations, children’s and youth football activities, merchandise sales, and commercial relationships with other sports and marketing entities in the market.

At the end of March of this year, the league approved an initiative according to which the 32 NFL teams would play at least one international game over the next eight years, a situation facilitated by the approval of a new regular season of 17 games, which debuted in the current campaign.
