NFL picks 3 German cities to bid for regular-season game

The New York Jets take on the Atlanta Falcons during an NFL football game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, Sunday, Oct. 10, 2021.

LONDON (AP) — The NFL selected the cities Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich on Tuesday to enter a final bidding stage to host a regular-season game in Germany.

Next season is the target for Germany to host its first game, though it could also debut in 2023 because of potential scheduling conflicts with soccer's World Cup, which begins next November in Qatar.
