Sports seem to be returning to normal after 2020 as the world is turned upside down. That includes football, which strives to have a season like any other, albeit with little change, as the NFL wants all teams to play abroad.
It was a topic during virtual meetings.
The 2021 season began in mid-March, so managers, including Commissioner Roger Goodell, held virtual meetings to determine how this NFL year would perform. This week the owners will meet in two sessions daily on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Various topics will be discussed, such as adjustments to the regular seasonal calendar, but one of the most important of them is the topic of international matches, which could not have taken place in 2020 and by 2021, the mystery remains if it can be done again.
The NFL plans all of its teams to play outside the United States, at least one game every eight years.
