Frankfurt finally sees a return of NFL after years of supporting American football

Frankfurt has always backed American football. The Frankfurt Galaxy was the only team that played in every season of the NFL’s European league, which ended in 2007 under the name NFL Europa. It had strong fan support and won four “World Bowl” titles. Now, the NFL is back in Frankfurt with two-regular season games starting Sunday when the Kansas City Chiefs face the Miami Dolphins at Deutsche Bank Park. Pubs are preparing for an influx of traveling fans, the Chiefs have docked a yacht on the Main River and Commissioner Roger Goodell has been asked to sign the city’s “Golden Book” — an honor reserved for dignitaries.
