Football meets Football as NFL Commissioner visits Hotspur Way
30 October 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
We were delighted to welcome Roger Goodell, Commissioner of the National Football League (NFL), as part of a delegation visiting Hotspur Way today (Friday, October 30).
Clark Hunt, owner of Kansas City Chiefs, who take on Detroit Lions at Wembley in the last of three NFL International Series games this year, and Chairman of the NFL International Committee was also in attendance, alongside NFL International Executive Vice Chairman, Mark Waller, and NFL Ambassador, Osi Umenyiora.
The group were given a tour of our world-class training facility in Enfield, North London, that has played host to both Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions community events in the past two weeks.
Earlier this year, the Club entered an agreement with the NFL to host a minimum of two regular season games per year once our new stadium is complete in 2018.

Roger Goodell was presented with a special edition Tottenham Hotspur jersey by Harry Kane, himself a huge NFL fan, signifying the year in which NFL will officially arrive in Tottenham.
Yesterday, Detroit Lions legends Barry Sanders and Lomas Brown delivered a clinic on head safety and concussion prevention to UK-based American football players at Hotspur Way.
The previous day, Lions owner Tom Lewand also visited the Training Centre, with the Bills holding a Play 60 Community Event in partnership with Tottenham Hotspur Foundation last week.
