Frankfurt is looking forward to National Football League (NFL) and two games in the stadium Frankfurt. Numerous fan events will take place in the Main metropolis before and during the highly anticipated NFL Frankfurt Games, where the reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs will face the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, November 5, and the Indianapolis Colts will meet the New England Patriots on Sunday, November 12.

In the run-up to these two football highlights, the NFL, the City of Frankfurt and Eintracht Frankfurt Stadion GmbH announced extensive information about fan activities and the significance of these NFL Regular Season Games for the City of Frankfurt on Thursday, October 19. In the Adler Business Lounge of -Frankfurt Stadium, Alexander Steinforth, General Manager of NFL Germany, Lord Mayor Mike Josef and Patrik Meyer, Managing Director of Eintracht Frankfurt Stadion GmbH, provided information about the events and activations surrounding the two games in the first two weeks of November.

"In just over two weeks, two NFL Frankfurt Games will take place for the first time. We would like to celebrate this premiere in Frankfurt with the many NFL fans in Germany. In the city, we have created many opportunities for NFL fans to experience American football in Frankfurt with the 'NFL Experience Frankfurt', the activations of the NFL teams and many side events," Steinforth said.

Lord Mayor and Head of Sports Josef said, "I am delighted that two international NFL games will be played in our beautiful stadium at once. Many Frankfurt people are feverishly awaiting the NFL games, even from all over the republic and abroad guests come to our city especially for this. These are great teams that will play here in Frankfurt: The Kansas City Chiefs as the reigning Super Bowl champions, the Miami Dolphins, the New England Patriots as the six-time Super Bowl champions and the Indianapolis Colts. The games, as well as the fan festival in the middle of the city center and the numerous events surrounding the games will be a great enrichment for our city."

"Even though numerous outstanding sports and music events have already taken place in the Frankfurt stadium, the anticipation for the first NFL Frankfurt Games is very special. Not only with us, in the entire environment we feel the enthusiasm and know about the responsibility to be at the center of the global sports event. That is precisely why we are putting a lot of effort into the topics of experience, security and traffic," said Meyer.
