Mexico City- The NFL will travel internationally, but will not go to Mexico City.
According to “Sports” report, Mexico’s mismanagement of the Covid-19 pandemic made the NFL decide not to play regular season games at the Azteca Stadium in the capital for the second consecutive year.
The US website states: “Since Covid-19 is better controlled in the UK than in Mexico, the NFL has decided not to return to Mexico City this season.”
The head of the NFL, Roger Goodell, only said in the last Super Bowl game that the idea was to return to the capital with a game, but did not seem to follow this agreement.
La Liga will announce the official calendar on Wednesday, and Mexico will not participate in official matches.
At the same time, as part of the international series, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons will play their home games in London.
The last game was in 2019, when the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Los Angeles Chargers.
Reforma contacted the NFL authorities in the United States and Mexico, but received no response.
