2:41 AMNFL will play in Mexico city in 2019
New-york-AP) - the NFL will return to Mexico city with a regular season game in the proper year.
Less than a week later such as the League moved the booming Chiefs-Rams match from Azteca stadium to Los Angeles due to a bad playing condition in the space of Mexico, the NFL and the elected President of Mexico approved the 2019 game. This will be the 3rd match of the contract signed in 2016.
Commissioner Roger Goodell and Mexican President-elect andrés Manuel lópez Obrador have met before than to arrange a poster on the first day of the week.
The game's date and participating teams won't become popular until the NFL 2019 schedule comes out in the spring.
A game between Chiefs and Rams like 9-1 was one of the most anticipated of the season and would have been a showcase for Mexico with a possible large television audience. But in a press release last Tuesday, the League said, in fact, that it indicated, in fact, that not so long ago the second-filled background at the historic stadium of Mexico city "does not meet the standards of the NFL for playability and priority and will not meet these standards for the coming Monday."
The League consulted with the Association of players and regional civil servants, before deciding what actually does not have the opportunity to risk the health of players on the warped background.
Mark Waller, the NFL's Executive Vice President for international Affairs, went to Mexico city last week after moving the game to Los Angeles.
In may, Azteca civil servants adjusted the playing plane from natural grass to hybrid, but the lawn wasn't flawless in the direction of a few months. Active implementation for football and performances caused serious harm to the grass.
Azteca held the 1st match of the regular season outside the USA in 2005, when Arizona beat San Francisco. The stadium has taken on a number of NFL shows, and Oakland raiders, Houston Texans, and fresh Britain patriots have been playing games of the permanent season in the direction of the last 2 years.
