(London) The NFL will host an international test camp for 50 athletes from 14 countries in London in October.
The event will be inspired by the annual screening session held by the NFL in Indianapolis. The goal is to find international athletes who have the skills and ability to break into club league training.
The camp takes place on October 12, at the Tottenham FC stadium.
Athletes will be invited from Great Britain, Germany, Belgium, New Zealand, France, Nigeria, Austria, Slovakia, Italy, Switzerland, Japan, Finland, Sweden and Hungary.
These athletes will be evaluated for identification in the NFL’s International Development Program, which has produced players such as Buffalo Bills defensive end Efe Obada, New England Patriots defender Jacob Johnson, as well as Sams Reyes on the Washington team.
Certain athletes identified during this assessment day will be invited to train in the United States for a period of three months. The group will be reduced again after this period and a few will be named to the NFL rosters for the 2022 season.
The league organized similar events in Australia, in 2018, as well as in Germany, in 2019. Another test camp will be held in Mexico later in October for athletes who were unable to travel to London due to the coronavirus. restrictions.
