ENGLAND COULD LEAVE WEMBLEY IN 2018

The FA are considering taking England on the road again from 2018 as talks over a Wembley-based NFL franchise gather pace.

The plans are being considered as the FA seeks to boost revenue, with the securing of a London NFL outfit said to be a high priority.

Any arrival of a franchise could mean the England national football team playing some games away from Wembley once again.

England played at the likes of Old Trafford, Villa Park and St James' Park between 2000 and 2007 while Wembley underwent major redevelopment.

Club England chief executive Adrian Bevington said in September: "Wembley has to be paid for. The reality is that the FA has to put an

events calendar on to do this. When we are debt free in eight or nine years, we will have more choice."
