It’s official: There will be no international NFL games in 2020. The league announced it will move its five games scheduled for London and Mexico City this season back to U.S. stadiums.
This includes the Atlanta Falcons’ scheduled trip to London.
“After considerable analysis, we believe the decision to play all our games domestically this season is the right one for our players, our clubs, and all our fans in the US, Mexico and UK,” said NFL Executive Vice President, Chief Strategy & Growth Officer Christopher Halpin. “We greatly appreciate the support of our governmental and stadium partners in Mexico and the United Kingdom, who all agree with this decision, and we look forward to returning for games in both countries in the 2021 season.”
The 2020 game would have been the Falcons’ first international trip since they played in London in 2014.
The Falcons and NFL are expected to release their full schedule sometime this week.
