Robert Kraft: NFL should push for team in London by end of decade
|07.17.14 at 9:21 pm ET|
Robert Kraft said Thursday the league “should work very hard” to have a team in London before the decade ends.
Kraft made the comment today at a conference of television critics in California. The Patriots owner, who has been a longtime advocate of having a team overseas, has pushed for his team to play in the games in London on several occasions — New England has played games at Wembley Stadium in 2009 and 2012.
In all, the league will play three regular-season games in London in the coming season, with the Jaguars, Falcons and Raiders hosting contests at Wembley. Regular-season games have been played in London annually since 2007.
