Cowboys in a league of their own

During that time, the Cowboys have averaged nearly 90,000 per home game, well above the league average of around 68,000. At the other end of the rankings, the Los Angeles Chargers had the lowest average regular-season home attendance in 2018 – this figure was slightly boosted by playing a ‘home’ game in front of more than 84,000 spectators at Wembley Stadium in London, by far the team’s biggest home attendance of the season.

Touchdown in London for the NFL

The NFL London games have been a huge success: an average attendance of more than 72,000 was achieved for each of the four games held in 2019. Of all the 32 franchises playing in the NFL, the only one to have not played in London is the Green Bay Packers.
