NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has refused to rule out a London Super Bowl.

Speaking at an event in New York the NFL’s chief said he wanted to see the game grow.

According to various tweets to come out of the event Goodell seemed very positive when talking about the prospects of adding something more to the league

He said: “Fans want more and London is a great example.”

In 2009 the head of the sport said that there wouldn’t be a Super Bowl in the UK unless there’s a team based there first.

Popularity in the sport has grown massively in the UK over the last few years with Sky Sports figures growing by 30 percent year on year, and a team in the capital could be the next big step.

NFL analysts on Sky Neil Reynolds said: "I believe we will have an NFL team before Rodgers and Adrian Peterson retire. We have a very powerful ally in Goodell.

"I'm pretty sure there will be three games next year and I think we'll get at least 70,000 people at each match. That would make London one of the best-supported teams in the NFL. I think it's going to happen, I really do."

Goodell was speaking ahead of Superbowl XLIVIII, the first open air cold weather Super Bowl in the history of the event.

The Super Bowl set for New York on the 2nd of February could open doors for venues across the NFL to host the game in the future.
