The NFL has announced that they will return to Tottenham Hotspur stadium to stage the international combine on October 3rd & 4th to search for players to join their International Player Pathway.

The NFL writes:

“Mirrored after the annual NFL Combine staged in the United States, the invitational scouting showcase is designed to discover and evaluate potential NFL talent globally.  Forty-four athletes will be selected to participate in a series of tests in front of NFL evaluators at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on October 3-4.”

“Hosting the International Combine in London for the second year provides tremendous exposure for our great game,” said Roman Oben, NFL Vice President of Football Development. “The Combine allows us to evaluate new talent globally, shine a spotlight on our sport and provide an opportunity for participants to compete at the highest level.”

“The International Combine is the first step in the process towards participation in the IPP program that has helped players such as EFE OBADA (UK/Washington Commanders), JAKOB JOHNSON (Germany/Las Vegas Raiders) and JORDAN MAILATA (Australia/Philadelphia Eagles) earn an NFL roster spot.”

“This year MARCEL DABO (Germany/Indianapolis Colts), ADEDAYO ODELEYE (United Kingdom/Houston Texans) THOMAS ODUKOYA (Netherlands/Tennessee Titans) and AYO OYELOLA (United Kingdom/Jacksonville Jaguars) will join the practice squads of their AFC South teams.”

There will be thirteen countries represented at the International Combine, including the UK with players from the Bristol Aztecs, Tamworth Phoenix, London Warriors and London Blitz.
