NFL Appoints Mark Waller to Executive Vice-President International Role

September 11, 2014

The National Football League (NFL) has promoted Chief Marketing Officer, sickness Mark Waller, impotent to Executive Vice-President, International ahead of the International Series in London this autumn.

British national Waller, who oversaw the international team as well as all marketing activity for the NFL, will now take on an enhanced role as Executive Vice-President, International, in which he will drive forward the League’s international growth.

“Since the NFL first played at Wembley in 2007, international growth has been an increasing priority for the League,” said Waller. “I am very excited about the opportunity to focus full-time on accelerating our development outside the US and capitalising on the momentum we have established in recent years. Playing three games at Wembley this year shows the NFL’s commitment to international growth, as do events such as NFL on Regent Street.”

The NFL is heading to London for three regular season games as part of the eighth year of NFL International Series this autumn. Having increased from one to two games in 2013, all tickets made available for the three games in 2014 have already sold out.

The 2014 series kicks off with the Oakland Raiders hosting the Miami Dolphins on September 28.  The Atlanta Falcons-Detroit Lions game on October 26 will be a historic first Sunday morning kick-off in the US, while the Jacksonville Jaguars play the second game in their four-year commitment to the UK when they face the Dallas Cowboys on November 9.
