Germany’s American football league finds a new home in Sportdeutschland. TV
The NFL’s presence in Germany has been steadily growing in recent years, with the number of fans steadily increasing as well. The NFL is hoping to capitalize on this trend and expand its fan base in the country. But the sports market in Germany is traditionally conservative and traditional. With that in mind, a move to a new home for American football in Sportdeutschland.TV makes sense.
The new website has a variety of sports rights, including those of the American football league. Its sports content will be categorized according to league and format. For example, Pro-Sieben-Sat1 will broadcast Bundesliga matches and the German football championship. However, a major obstacle remains for it: soccer rights. It would take a significant amount of money to obtain these rights.
NFL teams secure rights to market their brand in Germany

Earlier this year, the Patriots signed a multi-year marketing agreement with German television station ZDF.

Players like Sebastian Vollmer, Markus Kuhn, and Jakob Johnson will give the team a competitive edge in this market. In addition to these players, the Patriots will also be able to hire ambassadors in Germany to promote their brand.
