    So not sure some of you non NFL fans will have noticed some news from yesterday. The NFL are so hell bent on making the game international. They basically assigned territories for certain teams to go into. That basically means they can run events etc, player meets. But also they will play one game in that territory from the regular season every 8 years.

    UK has 6 such teams. But they are also going into Canada, Mexico, Germany etc.

    So our stadium will get used a lot for this. It's even in the picture info on the Jets Instagram.

    So I'm still surprised we don't have a naming rights.

    • Chicago Bears
    • Jacksonville Jaguars
    • Miami Dolphins
    • Minnesota Vikings
    • New York Jets
    • San Francisco 49ers
    A lot of these teams assigned to the UK make sense to me. Since it was televised in the 80's a lot of fans were bears supporters and 49ers fans. Dolphins for some reason have always had a lot of support in the UK. The Jets I was surprised at. And same with the Vikings. Its mostly strategic deployment for social media etc. But I suppose we will see a lot more of the players etc at other times and not just the London Series games held at our stadium.

    We really should sign some talented American youngsters, particularly as their academy system has improved so much.

    Cheers Sandman.

    Note the Goons and United NFL owners chose NOT to market in the UK, see below article. Also note the Leeds and San Fran 49ers investment:

    Leeds United's intimate relationship with the San Francisco 49ers took another step forward last month as holding company 49ers Enterprises acquired an additional 7% of Leeds United.

    This additional investment brought the 49ers' stake in Leeds to 44%, a little more than just 'skin in the game', to use a turn of phrase allegedly coined by fellow Statesider and Wall Street tycoon Warren Buffett.

    49ers Enterprises now hold an almost equal stake in Leeds United alongside Andrea Radrizzani's Aser Ventures, with an agreement in place for the American company to buy out the Italian by January 2024 for a reported £475 million.


    Given the existing investment, the 49ers would only be required to contribute an additional £200 million or so to complete the sale, but as Radrizzani stressed publicly following the break of that particular story, two years can be a very long time, especially in football.

    Yesterday, 49ers' head coach Kyle Shanahan was pictured in a Leeds United-branded hoodie during a press conference, which struck a chord with supporters on social media.

    It is also understood that members of the Leeds United board were in the United States over the past few weeks, in discussions with 49ers chiefs, including Leeds United Vice President Paraag Marathe.

    The 49ers are one of six teams who have chosen the UK as a market for commercial expansion, alongside the Chicago Bears, New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings and the Jacksonville Jaguars - whose principal owner is Fulham supremo Shahid Khan.

    As it turns out, the UK was the second-most sought-after region, as nine teams - including the 49ers - chose to market themselves more strongly in Mexico.

    Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke and Manchester United owners the Glazer family opted against marketing in the United Kingdom, despite their ownership of the Los Angeles Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, respectively.

    NFL clubs are permitted to begin activities in their selected markets as soon as January 1, 2022.

    At football grounds up and down the country throughout this season, we have witnessed a number of incidents of supporters entering the field of play – most commonly children attempting to obtain shirts from players at the end of matches.

    As we reach the halfway point in the campaign, it is necessary for us to remind supporters that entering the field of play is a criminal offence under s.4 of the Football (Offences) Act 1991, including for children aged 10 and above.

    Any supporter found entering the field of play may receive a three-year ban from attending football matches and receive a criminal record for football related offences, which may affect future employment opportunities or university applications. In the case of children, these sanctions also apply to accompanying parents or guardians.

    During current COVID-19 protocols, supporters entering the field of play are also breaching the bio-secure ‘Red Zone’ that has been implemented, putting the health of themselves and players at risk in the process.

    The Club itself could also be subject to sanctions from the relevant governing body for failing to control its supporters.

    We ask supporters to consider the wider implications of their actions and to not enter the field of play – or encourage it – under any circumstances.
    We thank you for your understanding and co-operation on this matter.

    We are very disappointed to see that the prices of food and drink at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium are increasing for the second time this season and we have made our feelings about this clear to the Club.

    Of course, we understand that globally costs have increased enormously. We know that the impact of Brexit on supply has been highly detrimental in many ways, including financially. We also understand that the pandemic has meant that labour patterns have changed and that the Club, along with everyone else, has felt the brunt of these price hikes.

    However, an on-average 7% increase at a time when supporters are facing huge financial pressures of their own feels excessive and untimely. Most of us have already incurred costs from matches we have been unable to attend due to the rapid pre-Christmas rise in the Omicron COVID-19 variant, and the inability to sell our tickets on Ticket Exchange due to falling demand. The Club has also chosen to remove the much-valued concessionary rates for young adults and seniors for recent home cup ties.

    At a time when supporters are already getting anxious about a perceived lack of investment in on pitch matters, a price hike like this in time for the North London Derby feels insensitive in the extreme.

    We have asked the Club to look at finding ways to serve more affordable food options via the mobile hawkers and to ensure that they are available throughout the stadium. We have also urged THFC not to impose any further price rises this season and to absorb any further increases themselves.

    We know how hard the catering team work to get it right, but these price hikes make it increasingly likely that supporters will shop around for affordable match day experiences. It’s in all of our interests to keep the prices down, build up the pre and post match atmosphere in the stadium and enable all supporters to enjoy the full benefits of our beautiful stadium.

    I suspect that adding 30p to food items will make a proportion of fans not bother, so Spurs will make the same amount or less money from food, whilst increasing anger.

    It is a £10k issue with TERRIBLE optics, in a business that spunks £10m up the wall willy nilly.

    Choose your battles Daniel. Make the food good value, then people will come in, and buy beer, and enjoy their outing at the stadium, and come again, win win.

    Three weeks from now: We demand to know why the club hasn't spent more on new players.
