More About American Football - From British Roots to Global Popularity
Given its growing popularity in the UK, it's perhaps fitting that this spectacular sport has its roots in England and the rugby football matches which evolved from matches going back as far as the 15th century. Early US games combined rugby and soccer rules and saw large collegiate teams go to battle on an irregular basis. By the 1930s the sport had mutated into a national concern, played with a set of strict rules and points system. Consequently, the National Football League championship game in 1958 was the subject of huge TV interest. Buoyed by the coverage, the sport went from strength to strength over the proceeding decades, with teams competing in for various 'bowl' trophies and championships.
Although UK audiences have long watched broadcasts of American games, interest has exploded in recent years thanks to the launch of the NFL International Series in 2007. The likes of the New York Giants, Chicago Bears and New England Patriots having already competed at Wembley Stadium, with crowds regularly topping the 80,000 mark. With the San Francisco 49ers and Jacksonville Jaguars rocking up to the venue in 2013, fans and commentators are expecting the biggest and best game in the series yet.
