Report

The American Bowl, played in Europe from 1986-1997, was the first NFL attempt at promoting the game on the continent. It followed on from regular weekly highlight broadcasts on National TV, and featured Pre-Season games between NFL teams. Matches were played in London, Berlin, Barcelona and Dublin, with the NFL focussing on promoting the World League of American Football / NFL Europe League from 1995 onwards, with the Pittsburgh Steelers v Chicago Bears game in Dublin in 1997, being the last in Europe (a 30-17 win for the Steelers). The American Bowl continued to be held in Tokyo, Mexico City & Sydney from the mid-1990s onwards.
