LONDON (AP) - The Olympic Stadium is in need of a tenant, and London Mayor Boris Johnson thinks the NFL could be the right match.
Just a few days after the NFL's sixth regular-season game at Wembley Stadium, Johnson says he has spoken with the league about playing more games in the British capital.
Johnson says he and his staff have "held a number of meetings with senior executives in the last few days to explore further opportunities involving the NFL and London."
All six NFL games in London so far have been played at Wembley, including New England's 45-7 win over St. Louis on Sunday.
The NFL has a contract with Wembley through 2016, but London is still looking for a permanent tenant for the Olympic Stadium.
