International American Football

Whilst not strictly speaking International matches, the National Football League has also played matches against American Football League teams in the 1920s, 1930s, & 1940s. Matches between Canadian Football League teams and American Football League & National Football League teams were played in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. IN the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s the National Football League and other leagues played Pre-Season “American Bowls” in European Countries, as well as Canada, Japan, Mexico and Australia. From 2005 onwards those American Bowl games were replaced by Regular season National Football League games in London, Toronto and Mexico City. College Football games have also been played overseas, most notably for Irish readers and readers in Ireland, with the College Football Classic in DUBLIN.
