London to host Super Bowl?!

85067-32MANY Americans would consider it a crime for the Super Bowl – the most-watched sporting event in the States, by a long way – to be held anywhere other than in their own country. But news has reached the Anorak sports desk, via Auntie Beeb, that it could be coming to Olde Londontown…

The NFL has had “substantive talks” with officials in London about holding the Super Bowl in the English capital, according to NFL Events Vice-President Frank Supovitz.

“The city has all the facilities needed, and in great quantity. We have had very substantive conversations with the city of London. We’ve got to the point of exploring the bid document,” Supovitz said, ahead of this weekend’s NFL Draft.

Perhaps by way of thanks, Boris Johnson, or whoever, could offer to give a future Carling Cup Final to Los Angeles or New York. Yeah, that could work.
