NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE

Lively, loud, and full of American sporting spirit would be how you could describe the atmosphere at The Blues Kitchen on Super Bowl Sunday.

One of America's biggest sporting events is coming to The Blues Kitchen in Shoreditch for the first-time ever this weekend.

A record crowd of 85,870 NFL fans descended on Wembley Stadium to enjoy an electric atmosphere as the Philadelphia Eagles sealed a 24-18 victory against Jacksonville Jaguars, writes Jacob Ranson.

An NFL regular-season record crowd at Wembley Stadium of 85,870 watched defending Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles do just enough to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-18 on Sunday.

The aborted sale of Wembley Stadium may not be such a hammer blow for grassroots football in Brent - even though its profits had been pledged to local sports provision.

Wembley Stadium plays host to the second of its three NFL games of the season on Sunday and fans will be hoping that they are treated to a better game than last week's one-sided contest between the Seattle Seahawks and the Oakland Raiders.

Jacksonville Jaguars have announced they will be hosting a 7v7 flag football tournament for the third year in a row with tickets to Superbowl LIII for the winners.

Hours of traffic jams, parking problems and anti-social behaviour around Wembley Park are just a few of the local concerns around the proposed £800million sale of Wembley Stadium.

Wembley Stadium hosted its second NFL game of 2017 and, for the second straight game, the 84,000-plus crowd was "treated" to a hugely disappointing contest as the New Orleans Saints beat the Miami Dolphins.

Residents feel "disappointed, disregarded and let down" at news Spurs will play all home games in Wembley saying it will badly affect their quality of life.

Tottenham Hotspur will play all their home games at Wembley next season, the club has announced.

Some of the NFL's biggest names were in London today to kick off the NFL UK Live Tour.

Ties in the NFL are very rare, especially as overtime remains essentially sudden-death, but for the second time in three games (the penultimate one of the previous week ended at 6-6) then teams played 75 minutes and could not be separated.

A new community centre, The Yellow, opens in Wembley Park in the heart of the Brent community. From October 1, the hub will offer a selection of arts and fitness classes, many of which will be free.
