There are rumblings in the sports world that the National Football League in the USA could have some serious labour issues which is getting fans of the USA style football concerned that there will not be enough time to schedule a game in London, England. Evidence of the growing popularity of the game in the UK was there when approximately 38,000 attended a fan rally in Trafalgar Square.
David Tossell, the NFL European director of public affairs, was quoted as saying, “Everything is on hold. We can't move until a collective bargaining agreement is in place.”
It is interesting to note that the British have taken to American Football so wholeheartedly. The last match they enjoyed in a capacity filled Wembley stadium brought ticket prices as high as £100.
