That really stinks...I enjoyed watching the games much more so than the arena brand of football
So, whomever may know...the Scottish & London franchises were moved or dropped?
How about Barcelona...
they were more or less "moved". london were moved to berlin, barcelona to cologne and scotland to hamburg, but you cant really speak of a move as the whole front office etc. changed and it has nothing to do with the old franchise.
itīs kinda understandable as germany is the european country with the most interest in am. football and the 3 moved franchises didnt have great crowds and the teams were losing too much money. another problem were the logistics as to go get to barcelona, edinburgh/glasgow and london the teams had to fly and thats of course much more expensive than just chartering a bus. frankfurt and rhein are the top 2 teams and they get quite good crowds as well. i expect amsterdam to be dropped next summer for a team in southern germany.
nflel average attendance
id like to know how much money the nfl europe costs the nfl per year ...
