By the numbers (Forbes, February 2016; MarketWatch.com, Steven Kutz July 2, 2016; CNN Business, Ahiza Garcia, April 19, 2018), the National Football League is one of the richest (and most popular sports leagues), comprised of 32 franchises that compete to win the Super Bowl – one of the sporting world's grandest and anticipated annual spectator sport events. During his time, league commissioner Roger Goodell set a path for the NFL to reach a revenue goal of $25 billion up through the year 2027. The NFL signed nine-year deals with Fox, CBS, and NBC at the start of the 2014 season that will ensure a flow of money coming in.
Presumptively, there is a link between football's popularity, revenue intake and the size of the modern football stadium. Although the largest stadium in the world is considered to be Rungrado 1st of May Stadium, a multi-purpose stadium in Rungra Island, Pyongyang, North Korea, for regular season NFL games, AT&T Stadium in Los Angeles has the highest capacity of any NFL stadium, with a peak capacity of over 100,000 spectators, a newer football stadium set for nearby Inglewood should surpass it in capacity when it begins operations sometime in the future.
Next, MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey has a listed seating capacity at 82,500. FedExField in Landover, Maryland has a capacity of 82,000 and Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin has a capacity of 81,435, AT&T Stadium has a capacity of 80,000, Mercedes-Benz Superdome has a capacity of 76,468 to offer a few more examples. The NFL uses several other stadiums on a regular basis in addition to the teams' designated regular home sites. For instance, Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, Mexico, was used to host an NFL International Series game in 2018, and Wembley Stadium in London is contracted to host at least two games per season, as part of the NFL International Series which runs through 2020.
Avid NFL football fans are certain to be eager for updated info on scores, latest NFL news, football games on tap for the particular day, and routine NFL news, team transactions, and rumors. Some of the best sources of NFL news, scores and the schedule for a particular NFL team, will likely start by checking NFL.com. With a spacious design layout and comprehensive website details on its start page, NFL.com provides tabs and links to access football "Highlights," NFL "news," "Game Theory," "What's Trending," "Week Preview," "Fantasy Football," "Analysis," 'London Games," "Featured," projections on the "Playoff Picture," and actually more than what has been taken into account here (subject to change as is the case when most websites are updated). NFL.com has a login feature for members to gain further privileges.
Other reliable and comprehensive sources of NFL news and information might offer a different feel for providing news and information than NFL.com. The Red Zone has categories to cover draft tracking, features, schedule, free agency, NFL Draft, Twitter, inactive, NFL cuts, injury report. Pro Football Weekly has a busy start page interface with numerous photos and multimedia content similar to NFL.com. The "Sections" navigation menu found near the top left corner of the website is likely to list as Sections, NFL Analysis, The Way We Hear It, Teams, Fantasy, NFL News; and under the multimedia heading it is likely to display, Photos and Lists, Video, Podcasts, and Pro Football Radio. There are other areas to select from as well.
BleecherBleecher Report is owned and presented by Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. They also seem to present a better approach to site structure and offerings. Along the top navigation on the start page, you will find links to NFL, CFB, NBA, WorldFootball, MLB, NHL, CBB, More, B/R Live, Mag, Tickets, GetTheApp. Bleecher Report's start page leans heavily on Twitter for a good amount of its visual content and news updated feed information. Pro Football Reference is nothing fancy to look at. Just tons of data in tables for any football stathead to pore over. Just underneath the main website navigation bar, there is a website purpose and description line that reads: "Football Stats and History The complete source for current and historical NFL, AFL, and AAFC players, teams, scores, and leaders." Near the bottom of the website they go on to note: "Most data provided by 24-7 Baseball, creators of the ESPN Pro Football Encyclopedia."
Suffice it to say, the pro football news and information sites mentioned above are a mere sampling. And of course, this webpage plans to do a pretty good job of keeping you up to date with timely and anticipated NFL details.
