NFL Interested in Having Team in London, Kraft Says

National Football League owners would like to have a team in London by the end of the decade, according to Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots.

Kraft, 73, made the comment yesterday at a conference of television critics in Beverly Hills, California, reiterating his past support for a team in the U.K.

The league will play three regular-season games in London in the coming season, with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders hosting the contests at Wembley Stadium. Regular-season games have been played at Wembley annually since 2007.

The Minnesota Vikings’ 34-27 victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 29 drew a crowd of 83,518 to Wembley.
