NFL could kick off 2019 season in China

The NFL’s 100th season is fast approaching, and with it the possibility of a landmark global move: kicking off the 2019 season in China. Now, per a new report in Sports Business Journal, the league could begin its centennial season with the firmest indicator yet of football’s future. “It may make better sense to look at that game as an opportunity to celebrate our hundred years, in the event we can pull it off and as a way to look forward to the future,” NFL Executive VP/International Mark Waller told SBJ.
