NFL International to focus on global impact:
NFL Europa discontinued

(June 29, 2007) -- The NFL has determined that it will switch the focus of its international business strategy to presenting the NFL to the widest possible global audience, including broader media visibility and the staging of international regular-season games, and will discontinue NFL Europa.

"The time is right to re-focus the NFL's strategy on initiatives with global impact, including worldwide media coverage of our sport and the staging of live regular-season NFL games," commented Mark Waller, senior vice president of NFL International.

"We will continue to build our international fan base by taking advantage of technology and customized digital media that make the NFL more accessible on a global scale than ever before and through the regular-season game experience. NFL Europa has created thousands of passionate fans who have supported that league and our sport for many years and we look forward to building on this foundation as we begin this new phase of our international development."

Last October, NFL owners passed a resolution to stage up to two international regular-season games per season. The new international series will launch on Sunday, October 28 when the Miami Dolphins host the New York Giants at London's Wembley Stadium.

In addition to the 2007 game in the United Kingdom, the NFL is preparing to stage regular-season games in future seasons in Germany, Mexico and Canada, with Germany being a strong candidate to host a regular-season NFL game in 2008.

NFL Europa began in 1991 as the World League of American Football, with 10 teams competing in the United States and Europe. After a two-year hiatus (1993-94) following the 1992 season, the league returned in 1995 as a six-team, all-European venture, with five teams in Germany since 2005, and has existed in that format through its final season in 2007.
What a bummer. I liked watching these jobbers out there playing. Plus it was off season football. And even though they're mostly scrubs, there was still something cool about seeing where guys were allocated from and whatnot. What are these undrafted players supposed to get more experience and stuff from now??? Developmental NFL? I can't watch that arena crap. Let's not even mention the CFL. Ah well, RIP NFL Europa

Why not do a D-league here? Europe is about as into NFL as the US is into NHL. This is a lame idea?

I hate that NFL Europa is dead, but I think they still need to make some sort of development league here in the US...I need my off-season football!

What you guys trying to tell me is that y'all have the NFL N ...either that or y'all actually haven't seen the NFL Europa ever...then why come out with bullshit like..."I'mma miss it" or whatever......just wondering...anyways...the NFL Europe League is actually doing a lot better this year...and Arena Football ain't all that bad either...so ...

What are you talking about??? It used to be shown on ESPN for years and then this last season was all on NFL N It's not like I was following who was playing for the Fire or whatever, but it was still entertaining enough when it was on and like I said, it was always a little cool to see where players were being allocated. I don't really get your post I guess.

It probably didn't come out the way i wanted it to...but anyways...this is what i wanted to say...I don't watch NHL...therefore I don't really know anyone in the NHL...therefore if I were going to say I miss the NHL when it gone...that doesn't make any sense......just like a lot of people don't watch NFL Europa...but for them to say they miss it when it gone...you know same caliber...Whatever it is...NFL Europa is actually getting better...and a few players have come out of that league and made it big in the NFL...but then again Soccer is a religion thing in Europe...therefore NFL Europa actually lasted more than it should've/could've been...I"ll miss it because I watched it because football is football...

Well, I agree. I didn't miss NHL when it was gone. I hardly noticed it when it was here. But I think that NFL fans, the more hardcore ones, at least passively followed NFLE. I wouldn't miss it if the CFL vanished. I think some people might be bummed out because of the way the NFL is trying to be more international, and by not having the NFLE around anymore, it means they're going to export more games. It's kind of a touchy subject.

Yeah...like regular games in Europe ...That's just a bad idea period...first of all the season ticket holders would miss one home game...and doing all that traveling and stuffs oversea...I about the direction the NFL is heading toward international...but hopefully it will work out...
