Now, I appreciate why you guys might not be a fan, I'm not about to try and persuade you otherwise- not my place. Also, I have only been to one NFL game in America (Miami at Texans this year), so I will not attempt to compare it to a regular game, BUT I will say this:
The NFL London games are EXTREMELY well supported, by an ever growing, increasingly more football-intelligent fan base. They are supported and attended by young and old alike. As someone who has had a season ticket for about 5 years now, I can confirm that the experience is fantastic with an incredible atmosphere- if you're thinking about coming over DO IT. It will be great. I would also say that it's come a long way from the early days of the International Series
On a more personal note- I'm only a Bears fan because my Dad is a Bears fan. Neither of us have seen the Bears play before (didn't make the first London game), so I will of course be renewing my season ticket and absolutely cannot wait.
Good you chimed in on this. As much of a nuisance as travel can be from experience I do know the Bears have a lot of Brit fans and I get tired of people thinking only the Packers or Cowboys have international appeal.
Long distance travel is one price some teams pay for success.
