NFL coming to Queensland?

Written by:

The Queensland government is working to bring an NFL game Down Under.

During her recent trade trip to the United States, tourism minister Kate Jones met with NFL executives, pushing a plan to have a game played at Suncorp Stadium.

The traditional home of rugby league in Queensland would have to swap its pies and sausage rolls for wings, hot dogs and nachos, and the NFL helmets would make Johnathan Thurston’s famed headgear look pretty flimsy.

But it’s not unprecedented for NFL games to be played outside the US with games already held in London every year.

“We have a deliberate focus at the moment in growing American tourism to Queensland and what better way to get Americans here than an NFL game,” Ms Jones said.
