N-F-L Europa A Thing Of The Past

Calling it a sound business decision that will allow for a stronger international focus on regular-season games outside the United States, the N-F-L folded its development league in Europe after 16 years today.

The announcement comes less than a week after the Hamburg Sea
Devils beat the Frankfurt Galaxy 37-to-28 in the World Bowl title game in Frankfurt before a crowd of 48-thousand-125 fans. Five of the league's six teams are based in Germany, with the other in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The league reportedly was losing about 30 (m) million dollars a
season.

N-F-L team owners decided in October to play up to two regular- season games outside the United States. The first will take place October 28th in London and feature the Miami Dolphins and the
New York Giants.
