American Football League match in Canada 1926 [Ref: 1]


The first Major League American Football International match took place in Toronto in 1926, between the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Wildcats of the American Football League. The Yankees won 28-0.

It was not, however, until 1941 that the first true International matches took place between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers from Canada, and the AFL’s Columbus Bullies (see Canadian Football League v American Football League Matches 1941-1948 for more details)
