Report: NFL nearing a vote on 2024 Brazil game

The NFL reportedly is nearing a vote on awarding a 2024 regular-season game to Brazil.

A decision could be made Wednesday at the NFL owners meetings in Dallas, according to ESPN.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said in October that another international locale could happen “as early as next year.”

The league has scouted locations in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo in Brazil, as well as Madrid in Spain for a potential 2025 game.

“There’s a lot of interest in the NFL,” league executive vice president Peter O’Reilly told ESPN in September. “I mean, we saw it. We did a Super Bowl viewing party last year down in Brazil, and it was packed and the energy is there.

“You’ve got some classic soccer clubs around the world who are really interested in hosting the NFL and building a relationship with the NFL. So the marriage of those two — there’s interests there, for sure, and it’s just determining the timing and the approach.”

The NFL’s International Series featured three games in London and two in Frankfurt, Germany, this season.

The 2024 schedule includes action in Munich, Germany (one game) and London (three), with the participants to be determined.

The Miami Dolphins possess commercial rights in Brazil, and the Chicago Bears and Dolphins have rights in Spain under the NFL’s global markets program. The league has never played a regular-season game in either nation.
