The NFL is heading back to Mexico City in the fall of 2018, and once again, a team from California will be taking part in the festivities.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell revealed on Wednesday that the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs will meet at Estadio Azteca, with the Rams playing host. The decision follows successful ventures in Mexico City in back-to-back seasons.
“Southern California and Mexico share strong historic and cultural ties and this game will provide an opportunity to celebrate the special connection between these two regions,” Rams Owner/Chairman Stan Kroenke said. “It is great to be participating in the NFL’s international games again and working with the league to grow the game abroad. Mexico has one of the largest NFL fan bases in the world and we are excited to bring Rams football to the millions of fans there.”
