A record number of American Football fans poured into Wembley Stadium (cap. 90,000) last week, 30 October, as the stadium welcomed back NFL International fixtures for the first time in three years.
The crowd of 86,215 saw the Denver Broncos beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 21-17 in what was the highest attendance ever recorded for an international NFL fixture in the UK.
Wembley Stadium, connected by EE, has a long established relationship with NFL having hosted the first NFL international game in London on 28 October 2007. Since then, the stadium has played host to a further 23 NFL London fixtures.
Stadium director Liam Boylan said, “It was great to have American Football back here at Wembley once again. Fans appetite for NFL is as strong as ever and I am delighted that we were able to extend the record attendance for an NFL game here in the UK.”
Jacksonville Jaguars COO Chad Johnson added, “When the Jaguars signed a three-year term with Wembley Stadium, one of our ambitions was to break the attendance record set in 2018. I am delighted that we not only achieved, but surpassed even our own expectations, and that is in no small part to the support we received from Wembley.”
